o Research indicates that active involvement is the most
fundamental and most powerful principle of human
learning and college success (Astin1993; Kuh 2000).
o Active involvement could be considered the first base of
college success because if it is not touched or covered
you cannot advance to another base.

In a national survey of 40,000 college professors who taught
freshman through senior-level courses in various fields, 97% of
them reported that the most important goal of a college
education is to develop students’ ability to think critically
(Milton, 1982).
o
Similarly, college professors who teach introductory courses to
freshmen and sophomores indicate that the primary
educational purpose of their courses is to develop students’
critical thinking skills (Stark et al., 1990).
