Burleson, Douglas A.; Hallett, Ronald E.; Park, Daniel K.
College and University, v84 n2 p10-17 Fall 2008
The contemporary college or university campus is a complex and dynamic environment that requires students to navigate myriad institutional processes. College preparedness is not simply a matter of being academically ready for postsecondary-level work, but also requires that students have a procedural knowledge of other university processes--what we define herein as "college knowledge." This article presents the results of an evaluation of a college preparation program that focuses on college knowledge and provides a road map for designing an effective college knowledge curriculum.
