Since academic administrators typically come up through the faculty ranks, they are unlikely to have a good grasp of what their student affairs colleagues bring to the common work of education. To provide a better understanding, the chapters in this volume cover topics such as: The history of student affairs, and functions typically associated with student affairs divisionsCurrent thinking and research in student development theoryTheoretical constructs underlying contemporary student affairs practice (and ways to employ these theories in academic administrationDiversity issues and their impact on student outcomes in the collegiate environment.
After a chapter on how to build successful collaborations between academic affairs and student affairs, two final chapters explore specific examples of how such collaborations work in practice: Academic honor codes, and undergraduate research. While written for academic administrators, the book also provides valuable insights for those in student affairs seeking to improve understanding and facilitate collaboration with colleagues in academic affairs.
