Summary
"Authors C. Carney Strange and James H. Banning are nationally recognized experts on campus environments. They draw from decades of research and experience to present an integrated framework for assessing and understanding academic environments. They describe the principles and concepts that define effective person-environment interactions and examine how these principles work through four different environmental components: physical, aggregate, organizational, and socially constructed. They also discuss the four conditions for successful learning: inclusion, safety, involvement, and communityFilled with engaging anecdotes and practical examples, this long-awaited volume helps academic administrators and student services professionals to plan effective programs and build supportive learning communities."--Jacket
