IHE Team Reviews Years that Matter Most

Gregory, Burman & Wolniak photo

Sarah Burman, Matthew Gregory and Greg Wolniak assessed Paul Tough's The Years that Matter Most: How College Makes or Breaks Us (2019) in a review published in Teacher's College Record.

While acknowledging the power of the vignettes and personal experiences woven through the book, the authors invite Tough to lean more into the scholar research to support his anecdotes and to recognize more of the promising programs around the country. 

They write, "For readers who are familiar with the challenges our higher education institutions face in serving students from diverse backgrounds, there was not an abundance of new information presented."

IHE co-sponsored an event with Paul Tough in 2019 during which faculty and students were able to engage with the author and hear more about the process and research behind this work.
