Summary
Despite representing a majority of the college student population, a surprising lack of research has focused on the unique issues and needs of commuter students. This volume reviews the contemporary research and thinking about commuters. Topics include: theoretical perspectives and discussions of foremost topics and issues, specific examples for applying contemporary research with students of color, students with disabilities, and online students, perspectives for immediate work and strategic planning, and practical applications, recommendations, and suggestions for supporting commuter students. The volume has four major sections: theory, profiles and issues, support and services, and general applications.--Publisher description.
