In a departure from typical college orientation texts, this collection of readings by leaders in education, government, and industry helps students see the advantages and importance of a college education. Readings touch on the role of a liberal arts education, critical thinking, the meaning of culture, and functioning successfully in the workplace. New to this second edition are a greater focus on globalization and multiculturalism, and Internet activities. Steltenpohl is a mentor emeritus at SUNY Empire State College.
