"Aspiring adults adrift: Tentative transitions of college graduates" is the first of Radio Higher Ed’s Author’s Series featuring Richard Arum and Josipa Roksa, authors of Aspiring Adults Adrift: Tentative Transitions of College Graduates. This work documents approximately one thousand recent college graduates’ successes and hardships, and finds that despite having successfully completed four-year college degrees, many of the graduates are struggling to transition into traditional adult roles.
In this follow-up to Academically Adrift, Arum and Roksa argue that colleges and universities need to enhance academic rigor and assessment to improve student learning outcomes and support graduates’ early life-course success.
