Wolf-Wendel, Lisa; Ward, Kelly; Kinzie, Jillian
Journal of College Student Development, v50 n4 p407-428 Jul-Aug 2009
Established theories and constructs long associated with student success, including involvement, engagement, and integration, provide common language and a body of knowledge to inform understanding of the challenges currently facing higher education. This paper examines how the theories and terms have evolved, explores how the terms are currently used, and considers their legacy for understanding contemporary concerns about student development and success.
