In recent years, growth mindset, resilience, and belonging have become popular topics for research and practice among college educators. The authors of this new volume deepen the conversation around these noncognitive factors that significantly impact student success. Along with offering support for the development of learning mindsets, this book contains strategies for faculty and staff to consider as they create initiatives, programs, and assessments for use in and outside the classroom. Informative features include:

- Learning Mindset Stories, highlighting how students, faculty, and staff members dealt with issues related to belonging, growth mindset, and resilience;

- Campus Conversations, providing questions for generating discussion among faculty, staff, and students on what institutions can do to incorporate learning mindsets with an eye toward student success; and

- Next Steps, serving as a roadmap for implementing institutional change.

Reviews & Endorsements:

Promoting Belonging, Growth Mindset, and Resilience to Foster Student Success fills an important gap for practitioners, faculty, and administrators who are committed to student success but are not sure what tactics are most effective. Solidly based in the latest research, this book tackles three key ‘learning mindsets’ that are not often packaged together but should be. Through a combination of storytelling, empirical research, questions for further reflection and campus dialogue, and concrete next steps to enact the principles, the authors have created a highly user-friendly book that can serve almost as a blueprint for student success programming.”

Laurie Schreiner, Chair & Professor, Department of Higher Education, Azusa Pacific University

“This book does two important things: It uses research to distill definitions of belonging, growth mindset, and resilience that are actually useful for practitioners, and it tells stories that show how paying attention to these things can change the lives of actual students. Amid all the noise in higher education right now, these two contributions are exactly what my colleagues and I need.”

Gary Daynes, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Barton College

“For years, research on mindset and noncognitive factors was limited to applications in K-12, but the authors of this book bring the theories, empirical findings, practical applications, and personal stories to the higher education landscape. This book makes an invaluable contribution to our efforts in higher education to support out students’ success and to identify and address barriers to college completion.”
