The Sociology of College Students' Identity Formation
Kaufman, Peter
New Directions for Higher Education, n166 p35-42 Sum 2014
The dominant paradigm in the literature of college student development reflects a cognitive or psychological bias when considering the effect that college has on students. This chapter offers an alternative perspective by recognizing college as a social process and subsequently examines students' identity formation from a sociological perspective.
