The Hechinger Report, a nonprofit news organization focused on producing in-depth education journalism, published an interview with Daniel Chambliss, the Eugene M. Tobin Distinguished Professor of Sociology, on May 17. “Q&A with Dan Chambliss: A successful college education can come down to a single conversation” focused on the Mellon Foundation-funded longitudinal study initiated by Chambliss in 2001. The article reviewed some of the study results, which will be included in a forthcoming book titled How College Works, and what implications the results might have for U.S. higher education.
Chambliss and Hamilton alumnus Christopher Takacs ’05 are co-authors of How College Works, which will be published by Harvard University Press in 2013. The Hechinger Report is an independently funded unit of Teachers College, Columbia University.
