Richard Arum and Josipa Roksa's Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses claims that college students are making limited gains in crucial areas, studying less than previous generations, and being insufficiently challenged. Students majoring in humanities, however, experienced some of the highest gains. This roundtable opens up a discussion of how we might rethink institutional practices and strategies for advocacy.
