Faculty see only a small slice of students’ total college experience—either in the space of our classes or across the time of their years with us. Students live and study amid webs of personal relationships—with both peers and professors— that shape their decisions, raise or lower their motivations, and provide not only the means for education but also some of the most important outcomes of a good college experience. Drawing on a decade of research on liberal arts college students, Professor Chambliss explains how faculty can often, at little cost, improve what their students gain from college, both academically and personally.
 
Daniel Chambliss is the Eugene M. Tobin Distinguished Professor of Sociology at Hamilton College. His research is in the social psychology of organizations, most recently on the college experience. A former member of the Executive Committee of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, Chambliss since 1999 has focused his research on higher education, culminating in a book, How College Works, co-authored with Christopher G. Takacs. How College Works, scheduled to be released in January 2014, has been awarded the Virginia and Warren Stone Prize of Harvard University Press as its best book of the year on education and society.
