A Portrait of Today's College Student

Praise for Generation on a Tightrope


"Over the last four decades, Arthur Levine has become the
premier analyst of continuities and changes in the American college
student population. In this impressive and comprehensive volume,
Levine and coauthor Diane R. Dean provide an authoritative and
richly textured picture of the much-discussed current generation."
—Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and
Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education


"Arthur Levine and Diane R. Dean take the long view of today's
generation of college students. This is a brilliant examination of
what has shaped our young people, what they are doing with the
tools they have, and where they are headed. It is a diagnosis of
what ails them, a celebration of their strengths, and a compelling
and generous prescription for their future—and ours."
—Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Alphonse Fletcher University
Professor, Harvard University


"Through this captivating portrait of the aspirations, values,
and unique needs of today's college students, Levine and Dean's
clearly written and engaging book ought to generate a national
discussion of how higher education can be restructured in order to
respond to and prepare the next generation of college-educated
adults—not only for effective functioning in the workplace,
but also to live lives as whole human beings who can help to lead
our society to a healthier place." —Alexander W. Astin
and Helen S. Astin, Distinguished Professors of Higher
Education emeriti, UCLA; authors, Cultivating the Spirit: How
Higher Education Can Enhance Students' Inner Lives


"I can't say enough about how important this work is. This book
is right on the mark for what needs to be known and understood
about today's college students by those who are responsible for
educating the future leaders and citizens of the world."
—Gwen Dungy, executive director, emeritus, NASPA,
Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education


"Generation on a Tightrope: A Portrait of Today's College
Student is a must-read for college presidents, administrators, and
professors as well as parents, employers, and government
leaders—who all have a stake in student success. Understanding
who today's college students are is essential as we collaboratively
develop and deliver the education that will prepare this generation
to build our future." —Nancy L. Zimpher, chancellor,
State University of New York
