Tuesday, August 16, 2016 - 12:45

Bringing Theory to Practice (BTtoP), an independent national initiative operating in partnership with AAC&U, recently released a new book titled Well-Being and Higher Education: A Strategy for Change and the Realization of Education’s Greater Purposes, featuring thirty-five essays from recognized scholars. Edited by BTtoP Director and President Emeritus of Bates College Don Harward, the volume provides a thorough discussion of well-being in the context of higher education. Essays focus on topics ranging from what well-being means, both in the hedonic and eudaimonic traditions, to how well-being is linked to the core purposes of an institution of higher education, to how campuses can facilitate and manifest this connection in realized ways—for the greater good of students and of the world in which we expect students to thrive and that we expect them to shape. The volume is available for purchase through AAC&U’s online store in print and as an eBook (PDF). For more information about BTtoP, visit
