How College Works, a book co-authored by Eugene M. Tobin Distinguished Professor of Sociology Daniel Chambliss and his former student Chris Takacs ’05, has been featured by The Chronicle of Higher Education as one of its book club selections for the last six weeks. In closing the book discussion on the Chronicle site and in social media via #ChronBooks, the publication is featuring a video of Chambliss.
“Relationships with friends and professors make or break a student’s college experience. That deceptively simple observation has big implications for making higher education better,” is the focus of the video as described by the Chronicle. Chambliss addressed “the book’s ‘reliable, powerful, available, and cheap’ recommendations for improving the college experience.”
