20th Anniversary Collection

Journal of College and Character

As a supplement to the 20-year anniversary issue of the Journal of College and Character to be published in February 2020, the editors have assembled this special collection of JCC articles focusing on topics pertaining to moral and civic education of college students. These articles—authored by a diversity of scholars and practitioners—were chosen from issues published over the past 20 years. The articles provide historical perspectives on character development issues in higher education over the past two decades as well as a sample of some of the best and most popular JCC articles on the topic of character development.

We hope that this collection will be a valuable resource for NASPA members and colleagues who are engaged in efforts to promote the character development of today’s college students.
