Learning Reconsidered 2: A Practical Guide to Implementing a Campus-Wide Focus on the Student Experience

This just-released companion publication to Learning Reconsidered: A Campus-Wide Focus on the Student Experience, which called for academic and student development processes to work together for the benefit of students, is a blueprint for action.
