Scott, David A.; Livingston, Wade G.; Havice, Pamela A.; Cawthon, Tony W.
Journal of College and University Student Housing, v39 n1 p200-213 2012
Young men struggle with privilege and oppression in college and university residence halls just as they do in other educational and social contexts. While discussions and research about adolescent and adult identity development continue, little attention has focused on how a male student's identity development can impact residence life cultures on college and university campuses. Using the Key model (Scott & Robinson, 2001), this article explores men's identity development and implications for housing and residence life.
