Student affairs and services play a critical role in student learning and success, as well as the level at which community colleges meet institutional outcomes. The evolution of student affairs as a field and recognition of its role in student experiences underscore its importance in the effort to provide quality education to college students. This volume provides a framework for excellence in student affairs work at community colleges, including assessing quality and outcomes for program development and accreditation. The authors explore: * Excellence in preparing and developing professionals at multiple stages in their careers * Creating and using professional standards and competencies * Understanding the role of accreditation in professional practice. The issue also includes a discussion of implications for community college student affairs preparation and practice. This is the 166th volume of this Jossey-Bass quarterly report series. Essential to the professional libraries of presidents, vice presidents, deans, and other leaders in today's open-door institutions, New Directions for Community Colleges provides expert guidance in meeting the challenges of their distinctive and expanding educational mission.
