Description - The Gender Gap in College by Linda J. Sax

Drawing on data from a sample of approximately 17,000 male and female students that represent 200 institutions, The Gender Gap in College examines the impact of college experiences, peer groups, and faculty on a comprehensive array of student outcomes. Author Linda Sax's approach is unique because she directly examines the interaction between gender and a variety of college experiences, a major inquiry which addresses the fundamental "individualization" question: do women and men respond differently to a given educational experience? The areas covered in the book include academic achievement, self-concept, life goals, career development, physical and emotional health, political and social attitudes, and satisfaction with college.
