Bushnell.; Summary: "Undergraduate students come to college from a myriad of pathways for a variety of purposes, and the same can be said of them as they leave to head off into their next endeavors. Arguably, the most important goal of higher education is to prepare students to achieve their postcollege aspirations, and campuses typically pursue that goal through a combination of curricular and co-curricular programs and services for students.This issue offers readers a glimpse into contemporary context and practice related to helping students with their after-college transition from one form of education ... to the next, from education to the workforce, or from education to military service." -- p.
