Each year, many students with affordable college options and the academic skills needed to succeed do not enroll at all, enroll at institutions where they are not well-positioned for success, or drop out of college before earning a credential. Efforts to address these challenges have included changes in financial aid policy, increased availability of information, and enhanced academic support. This volume argues that the efficacy of these strategies can be improved by taking account of contemporary research on how students make choices. In Decision Making for Student Success, scholars from the fields of behavioral economics, education, and public policy explore contemporary research on decision-making and highlight behavioral insights that can improve postsecondary access and success. This exciting volume will provide scholars, researchers, and higher education administrators with valuable perspectives and low-cost strategies that they can employ to improve outcomes for underserved populations.

Student Success in Higher Education: Developing the Whole Person through High Impact Practices provides front-line educators with a new student success model based on the latest research in the psychology of well-being and student-centered learning. This model integrates five critical student success functional areas-academic advising, career services, counseling and psychological services, faculty teaching, and student engagement-and helps colleges and universities develop psychologically healthy and self-aware students as a part of their educational mission. Drawing upon over 30 years of professional experiences as higher education leaders, teachers, and counselors, the authors have developed the Integrated Student Success Model (iSuccess), a visionary and comprehensive approach to student success through well-being and self-knowledge. The model provides three research-based, high-impact practices that empower students to create their own pathways to success in college and in life: Integrated Self Model (iSelf) - a framework to understand the whole person through self-system and positive psychology attributes Self Across the Curriculum (SAC) - a pedagogy to teach self-knowledge through curricula Success Predictor (SP) - a student success assessment instrument and intervention tool When the self becomes the lens through which students learn, students can balance cognitive with non-cognitive factors to become happy and whole people who are equipped to create a positive life and make contributions toward a better society."
