Chambliss, Eugene M. Tobin Distinguished Professor of Sociology Hamilton CollegeResearch will be presented based on a longitudinal project following one thousand students from the Academically Adrift study through college and after their graduation in spring 2009. The findings—based on an analysis of performance assessments, surveys, course transcripts and in-depth interviews—document how critical thinking skills and college experiences are related to adult transitions. Specifically, the presentation will focus on addressing the following questions: What sort of post-college transitions-economic, social and civic-did these students accomplish as emerging adults, who graduated during a period of significant economic difficulties in the U.S.?
