Summary

Framed by an overview of theories that guide student affairs practice, this book presents cases challenging an array of problems that student affairs personnel face, such as racial diversity, campus violence, alcohol abuse, and student activism. The revised edition replaces nearly eighty percent of the existing cases with new content on student affairs issues that reflect the complexity of today's environment at colleges and universities, including crisis management, the global context, and the expanded use of new technologies and online social networking. The fully updated edition includes new references, expanded theory with an increased emphasis on race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, and three new chapters on admissions, assessment, and athletics. An excellent teaching tool, this book challenges students to consider multiple overlapping issues within a single case study. The book is also intended for student affairs workshops or for new or experienced professionals in student affairs. Features include: A two-part structure that sets the stage for case study methods and links student affairs theory with practical applications Cases set in a wide variety of institution types and locations Over 30 complex case studies reflecting the multifaceted issues student affairs professionals face in today's college university environment
