This timely and comprehensive overview of key theories of student development illustrates their application across a range of student services with diverse student populations. It focuses on nontraditional student populations, including adults changing careers, parents, veterans, and international students. The book examines relevant theories of cognitive, ethical, moral, and personality development, as well as theories of identity development in terms of ethnicity, gender, and ability. Also covered are theories relevant to disability issues, LGBTQ identity issues, and choice of career and degree programs. Unique to the text is information on how theories can be applied, beyond understanding individual students, to student groups and to guide the coordination of student affairs services across the campus.
