Self, College Experiences, and Society: Rethinking the Theoretical Foundations of Student Development Theory
Winkle-Wagner, Rachelle
College Student Affairs Journal, v30 n2 p45-60 2012
This article examines the psychological theoretical foundations of college student development theory and the theoretical assumptions of this framework. A complimentary, sociological perspective and the theoretical assumptions of this approach are offered. The potential limitations of the overuse of each perspective are considered. The conclusion is drawn that the use of both theoretical frameworks could lead to more holistically serving college students. (Contains 1 figure and 4 notes.)
