Moreover, PSDT articulated that a student's psychosocial development is related to the institutional factors (manageable size, clear and consistent objectives, and student development programs), teaching and curriculum (educationally powerful curricula and innovative teachers), and the interactive milieu of the campus (student-faculty interactions and student communities).
The above results of students' learning and development correlated with the notions of PSDT (Chickering & Reisser, 1993).
The above results demonstrated the characteristics of PSDT (Chickering & Reisser, 1993) that humanistic environment brings an impact on students' psychosocial development.
PSDT emphasizes the relationships between the university experience or environment and the psychosocial development of students, such as institutional factors, teaching and curriculum, and the interactive milieu of the campus.
Employing the PSDT in a qualitative study as a reference framework, Gyamfi (2013) explored the development based on the life experiences of ten underprivileged university students.
