Reviews

"Academically Adrift might be the most important book on higher education in a decade. Combined with students' limited effort and great disparities in benefits among students, Arum and Roksa's findings raise questions that should have been raised long ago about who profits from college and what colleges need to do if they are to benefit new groups of students. In this new era of college for all, their analysis refocuses our attention on higher education's fundamental goals." - James Rosenbaum, Northwestern University"
