  • Jayne E. Brownell and 
  • Lynne E. Swaner

This publication examines what educational research reveals about five educational practices: first-year seminars, learning communities, service learning, undergraduate research, and capstone experiences. What is their impact on students? Is the impact the same for traditional students as for those from historically underserved populations? Also included are specific recommendations for improving the quality of high-impact practices.
