Students' expectations for college form the foundation for the nature of the relationship they have with their college or university. Taking Expectations Seriously: A Guide for Campus Applications is the companion guide to Promoting Reasonable Expectations: Aligning Student and Instiutional Views of the College Experience (Jossey-Bass, 2005). The authors apply the principles discussed in Promoting Reasonable Expectations in four vignettes that illuminate how to reduce discrepancies between what students and institutions want from one another. Academic and student life administrators, faculty members, and others will find the solid research and analyses presented in this guide helpful for improving the quality of undergraduate education by examining students' expectations for college.
