Responding to Adult Learners in Higher Education offers higher and adult education practitioners an up-to-date handbook resource for serving adult students. Integrating current research and practice, it offers new insights and understandings regarding the growing diverse characteristics of adult students; best practices for admission, entry, service support, and retention of adult students; and further resources for professional development and reflective practice. Key discussions include unique characteristics of adult students; recruitment and admissions strategies; academic advisement and assessment options; effective support services; and opportunities for creating community and advocacy for adults.

"This volume belongs on the desk of every administrator responsible for making decisions about any aspect--academic, psychological, physical, social, or financial--of student life on campus. It also belongs in graduate programs that prepare administrators for, and student affairs personnel to work in, higher education." -- Trenton R. Ferro, PAACE Journal of Lifelong Learning, Vol.12, 2003

"… this book is a highly readable, practical guide that should be mandatory reading for all advisors, student services personnel, and faculty members." -- Peter Pellegrin, NACADA Journal, Spring 2002

"The book is certainly a "must read" for academic advisors. It's also a "please read" for students of higher education who hope to work in institutions of the 21st century." -- Robert Nolan, Oklahoma State University, Adult Learning, Winter 2002
