Loosening the Ties That Bind: The Limitations of Youth-Centricity in Higher Education Admissions, Research, and Practice
Iloh, Constance
College and University, v93 n1 p25-28 Mar 2018
Much of what is known about college access, admissions, and student experiences is largely a result of studies and practices focused on "traditional-aged" college students. While these studies and efforts have provided substantial information to guide our field, they are inherently limited by their intentional and narrow focus on younger student populations with traditional educational trajectories. This article suggests that a continued focus on traditional-aged college students will only cripple the ability to advance 21st-century higher education research, teaching, and admissions practice.
