Elizabeth Hamblet, Consultant and Learning Specialist at Columbia University, has developed an “unofficial” glossary of terms designed to define and explain words and phrases commonly used in the post-secondary environment.
The vocabulary used at the college level can be confusing and intimidating. High schools can do all students a favor by introducing and explaining these terms. . . .The explanations provided here are not dictionary definitions and should not be considered official, but are provided simply to help demystify the terminology.
