NCDD Leader Publishes New Book for the College-Bound

David Schoem, University of Michigan Professor and member of the NCDD Steering Committee, has published a new book, “College Knowledge: 101 Tips for the College-Bound Student.” Unlike most books of this type, David emphasizes dialogue, diversity, civic involvement, and engagement with learning. Through lively tips and compelling student stories about life at college, the book offers thoughtful, practical information for every student who wants to make a successful transition from high school to college. Examples of tips include: Expand your comfort zone; Be a thinker and an activist, Take responsibility for the world around you, Participate in Intergroup Dialogue, Think about social justice, Take democracy seriously, and Be a boundary-crosser.
