CIC Releases Second Digest of Recent Research

‚ÄčIn late March, CIC released the second edition of the Digest of Recent Research. Published three times a year, the Digest highlights timely and relevant research from scholarly journals and other publications that independent college and university presidents and other senior campus leaders may find helpful.

Each Digest offers a brief summary of selected articles that discusses the research findings and delineates implications for action by campus leaders. Edited by John M. Braxton, professor of higher education at Vanderbilt University, this second installment includes reviews of articles on the following topics:

  • Strategic presidential leadership;
  • Faculty personnel policies;
  • Enrollment management; and
  • Student life issues, including alcohol use, adjustment to college, and health matters.

CIC is grateful to the Spencer Foundation for its support of this member service. The Digest is available online and for download as a PDF. For questions or comments contact Hollie Chessman, director of research projects, at
