A book co-authored by NC State College of Education Associate Professor Chad Hoggan, Ed.D., has been chosen for The Chronicle of Higher Education’s list of Selected New Books on Higher Education for 2019.
Transformational Learning in Community Colleges: Charting a Course for Academic and Personal Success, published by Harvard Education Press, focuses on changes community colleges can implement to support nontraditional and historically underserved students as they face challenges beyond academics.
The book is one of 18 selected for The Chronicle of Higher Education’s list, published on Dec. 15, 2019.
“It is validating for The Chronicle of Higher Education to mention our book in their short list of recommended titles published this year,” Hoggan said. “We felt like we had some helpful insights to share, and being put on this list makes us hopeful that our message is resonating with people interested in the future of higher education.”
Using transformative learning theory, the book details the social and emotional changes that nontraditional and historically underserved students face when enrolling in community colleges, and offers exercises that faculty and advisors can implement to provide more support for these students and help improve educational outcomes.Read more about Hoggan’s book
