In the day-to-day work of higher education administration, student affairs professionals know that different institutional types—whether a small liberal arts college, a doctoral intensive institution, or a large private university—require different practical approaches. Despite this, most student affairs literature emphasizes a "one size fits all" approach to practice, giving little attention to the differing models of student affairs practice and their diversity across institutions. In the second edition of this influential book, leading scholars Kathleen Manning, Jillian Kinzie, and John H. Schuh advocate an original approach by presenting 11 models of student affairs practice, including both traditional and innovative programs. Based on a qualitative, multi-institutional research project, One Size Does Not Fit All explores a variety of policies, practices, and programs that contribute to increased student engagement, success, and learning. New to this Revised Edition: Refinement of models in light of recent NSSE data and current developments in higher education, including budget cuts and the economic crisis, Updated information throughout about model assessment and techniques to renew divisions of student affairs, A deeper analysis of how models of student affairs practice relate to institutional mission and purposes, End-of-chapter discussion questions to guide thinking about ways to incorporate models in one’s own context, An entirely new Part IV, including chapters on "Catalysts and Tools for Change" and "Redesigning Your Student Affairs Division."

What is your level of understanding of the many moral, ideological, and political issues that student affairs educators regularly encounter? What is your personal responsibility to addressing these issues? What are the rationales behind your decisions? What are the theoretical perspectives you might choose and why? How do your responses compare with those of colleagues? Contested Issues in Student Affairs augments traditional introductory handbooks that focus on functional areas (e.g., residence life, career services) and organizational issues. It fills a void by addressing the social, educational and moral concepts and concerns of student affairs work that transcend content areas and administrative units, such as the tensions between theory and practice, academic affairs and student affairs, risk taking and failure; and such as issues of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and spirituality. It places learning and social justice at the epicenter of student affairs practice. The book addresses these issues by asking 24 critical and contentious questions that go to the heart of contemporary educational practice. Intended equally for future student affairs educators in graduate preparation programs, and as reading for professional development workshops, it is designed to stimulate reflection and prompt readers to clarify their own thinking and practice as they confront the complexities of higher education. Student affairs faculty, administrators, and graduate students here situate these 24 questions historically in the professional literature, present background information and context, define key terms, summarize the diverse ideological and theoretical responses to the questions, make explicit their own perspectives and responses, discuss their political implications, and set them in the context of the changing nature of student affairs work. Each chapter is followed by a response that offers additional perspectives and complications, reminding readers of the ambiguity and complexity of many situations. Each chapter concludes with a brief annotated bibliography of seminal works that offer additional information on the topic, as well as with a URL to a moderated blog site that encourages further conversation on each topic and allows readers to teach and learn from each other, and interact with colleagues beyond their immediate campus. The website invites readers to post blogs, respond to each other, and upload relevant resources. The book aims to serve as a conversation starter to engage professionals in on-going dialogue about these complex and enduring challenges. Short Contents The 24 questions are organized into four units. I. The Philosophical Foundations of Student Affairs in Higher Education explores the implications and complications of student affair educators placing learning at the epicenter of their professional work. II. The Challenges of Promoting Learning and Development explores the challenges associated with learning-centered practice. III. Achieving Inclusive and Equitable Learning Environments addresses crafting learning environments that include students whose needs are often labeled “special,” or students and/or student subcultures that are often marginalized and encouraged to adapt to normalizing expectations. IV. Organizing Student Affairs Practice for Learning and Social Justice addresses the organizational and professional implications of placing learning and social justice at the epicenter of student affairs practice.

"Many colleges and universities have not engaged in a critical self-examination and transformation of the cultures of their campuses that can lead to most effectively serving racially diverse student populations. This timely edited collection provides insights into how campus cultures can and do shape the experiences and outcomes of their increasingly diverse college student populations. By cultivating values, beliefs, and assumptions that focus on including, validating, and creating equitable outcomes among diverse undergraduate students, an institution can increase their success. Moving beyond previous explorations of campus racial climates, Creating Campus Cultures addresses the considerable obstacles practitioners face as they attempt to transform entrenched institutional cultures to meet the needs of diverse student bodies. A broad range of chapters include voices of students, new research, practical experiences, and application of frameworks that are conducive to success. This book will help student affairs and higher education administrators navigate this increasingly difficult terrain by providing practical advice on how to foster success among racial minority students and enact long-term, holistic change at any institution"--Provided by publisher.

"One of the most powerful ideas in higher education today is transforming campuses into learning communities. At last, Shapiro and Levine have given us-faculty, students, and administrators—a handbook on how to accomplish this. It is one of those too rare and much-needed volumes on translating theory into practice by authors who have actually done it." —Arthur Levine, president, Teachers College, Columbia University "Shapiro and Levine convince us that learning communities address what we now know about how students learn inside and outside the classroom. Read this book for conceptual rationale, practical answers to implementation questions, and passionate voices that speak for a social contract among students, faculty members, and institutions, a contract enacted and assessed for the benefit of all." —Barbara L. Cambridge, director, Teaching Initiatives, American Association for Higher Education "Everything you always wanted to know about learning communities, but perhaps hadn't known enough to ask.... Shapiro and Levine are to be commended for this fine addition to the expanding literature base on one of the most important educational innovations of our time." —John N. Gardner, executive director and distinguished professor, National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition/University 101, University of South Carolina In recent years, learning communities—a curricular instructional innovation that integrates different facets of the undergraduate experience to enhance and enrich learning—have become the most promising new strategy for promoting student success and satisfaction in college. Learning communities give students the chance to deepen and diversify their education, connect with others who share their interests, and actively participate in the educational process. Creating Learning Communities is a practical, insightful guide to the essentials of this rewarding new program area, including how to design, fund, staff, manage, and integrate learning communities into different campuses. Drawing from their own experience as well as from experiences of campuses around the country, Nancy S. Shapiro and Jodi H. Levine provide both a sound theoretical rationale and nuts-and-bolts advice on the logistical, administrative, financial, and turf-related issues of creating an effective learning community. And perhaps most important, they show how to ensure that such communities embody and fulfill the objectives for which they were established. Readers will discover a pragmatic blueprint for creating a learning community that can be adapted to almost any campus culture—including specific guidance on who should be on planning committees, samples of syllabi for interdisciplinary courses, monthly activity calendars, and other operational program models. The Authors Nancy S. Shapiro is director of the K-16 Teaching-Learning Partnership in the Office of Academic Affairs, University System of Maryland. She was founding executive director of the College Park Scholars Program at the University of Maryland, College Park. Jodi H. Levine is director of First-Year Programs at Temple University and teaches in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies.

Co-published with ACPA, College Student Educators International and NASPA, The National Association of Student Personnel Administrators, Inc. img width="118" height="50" src="/sites/stylus/images/imgACPA.jpg" img width="118" height="40" src="/sites/stylus/images/imgNASPA.jpg" The need for the new role of student affairs assessment coordinator has emerged in response to the increasing demand for outcomes information, the proliferation of data, and the recognition that coordinating this work within divisions is of paramount importance. For those taking on this role, this book constitutes a practical guide to leading and implementing an assessment program – whether doing so full- or part-time, as an individual or in a multi-person office, or whether reporting to or being in positional leadership. Recognizing that this function that is new to student affairs, and that those who take it on frequently find themselves in an in-between world, being both embedded with, but also distinct from, their divisional colleagues, this book first addresses the common challenges and issues related to defining and implementing the role and cultivating a culture of assessment. It then deals with the practicalities of creating systems and structures; developing assessment skills throughout the organization; and creating an integrated model for measuring progress towards strategic planning goals, and for informing decision-making and resource allocation. The book concludes with guidance on leading and maintaining ethical standards related to data collection, storage and sharing for the division, and on navigating the dynamic political environment that assessment professionals will encounter.
