While both committed to providing effective programs and services that help students succeed in college and beyond, and aware of the increasing demands from internal and external stakeholders that every dollar spent benefits students and contributes to the mission of higher education, student affairs professionals have had little guidance about how to create and sustain the culture of assessment to achieve these goals. This book provides the practical directions fore embedding assessment in the fabric of practice.

The authors in this volume - all experienced senior level leaders, who have established programs that exemplify a culture of evidence-based practice - identify and explicate ten tenets of practice for leading and implementing a culture of change committed to student learning and sound assessment methods.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book explains how to tell the story of assessment while engaging each student affairs team member on your campus, whether it is the senior student affairs officer or a front-line professional. Each chapter builds on the previous, making the case for why assessment matters and how to implement assessment practice so that inquiry becomes a priority, deeply embedded into the daily work of all who believe in and contribute to student success.

It shares various ways to evaluate implementation of student success theory and practice in a manner that leads to improving relevant outcomes. Upon reading, you will likely gain ideas to cultivate a culture of inquiry along with important means to communicate results to stakeholders and garner their feedback for prioritizing recommendations. This book provides a 'how to' in making assessment an integral practice of the student affairs profession.

It is my hope that the leaders (read: all of you) who are reading this book are the leaders who have that kind of courage - the courage to hold space for transformation to occur. If so, I invite you to read this book and fully engage in the lessons colleagues share. Explore how the ideas presented in these pages may be adapted and taken up within your organization. Then, collaboratively execute and enjoy the fruits of your investment in meaningful inquiry."--Marilee J. Bresciani Ludvik, Professor, Postsecondary Education
