DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

For new professionals in multicultural student services (MSS), this book constitutes a thorough introduction to the structure, organization, and scope of the services and educational mission of these units. For senior practitioners it offers insights for re-evaluating their strategies, and inspiration to explore new possibilities. The book discusses the history and philosophy of MSS units; describes their operation; asserts the need for integration and coherence across the multiple facets of their work and how their role is influenced by the character and type of their institutions; and considers the challenges and opportunities ahead. The theme Building Bridges, Re-Visioning Community reflects the dual role of MSS. They “build bridges” between underrepresented student populations and the broader institutional environment, between different groups of student populations, and across differences in cultural values and traditions. At a time of increasing diversity on campus, their role is also to champion the “re-visioning” or redefinition of what constitutes community in higher education – in other words to reach beyond serving their traditional constituencies to educate for multicultural competence, and advocate for social justice across the campus commons. This book is organized in four sections moving the reader from the past to the present to the future, and from a service mission to an educational one. Part One reviews the purposes for which MSS were created, and the evolution of their vision, concluding an overview of how units perceive their needs and challenges today. Part Two addresses a range of issues – such as race/ethnicity, sexual orientation / gender identity, and religion/faith diversity – commonly addressed by MSS, and, in recognizing the tensions inherent in serving such disparate constituencies, advances ideas for bringing greater integration and coherence to their work. Part Three considers how institutional context influences the structure and organization of MSS, and addresses such questions as: Who are they serving? What kind of support services and educational programming can they provide? How broadly or narrowly should they define their role, and can they extend their influence through alliances with other campus units? The book concludes by looking at how MSS can re-vision community to ensure their continued relevance to the college or university community. An ACPA Publication

Through its elaboration of the rich and lively ironies of the Columbus story, The Accidental Indies looks at the nature of storytelling itself.

Editor: Jossey-Bass

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The fiscal roller coaster of the 1970s and 1980s prompted many institutions of higher education to tighten their budgets by reducing, consolidating, and merging programs, which reduced human resources and operating costs. The "fiscal woes" lamented by the higher education community has not led to any broad-based support but rather has heightened the public debate over the efficiency and effectiveness of higher education. For higher education to reclaim the public's trust, it must undergo a fundamental restructuring—a shift from an institutional acquisition entrepreneurial model to a student-centered learning model. As more institutions begin to shift their focus to student learning, the question for student affairs practitioners becomes: How will student services change during restructuring? This volume of New Directions for Student Services focuses on budgeting as a policy tool for restructuring. Each chapter is written from the perspective of the changing conditions in higher education, that is, moving beyond cost containment through reductions and combinations toward accountability and effectiveness through restructuring. This is the 70th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Student Services. For more information on the series, please see the Journals and Periodicals page.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This volume identifies the needs of graduate and professional students (a demographic historically underepresented by student affairs professionals) and advises how student services professionals help these students address their needs. Traditionally, the psychological aspects of the graduate and professional student experience have fell on academic departments or the graduate college. An increasing number of student services professionals, however, are now including the graduate and professional student under their umbrella of service. This volume is a response to the demand from these professionals for more research based information and advice addressing the needs of these graduate and professional students.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The central theme of this volume of New Directions for Student Services is the graduate student experience. It has been assumed that because graduate students have completed undergraduate degrees, they have developed to the point where they can handle the new responsibilities of graduate study on their own. Moreover, because graduate study is characterized as "trial by fire," systems of support are seen as unnecessary. Although there have always been those who have been alert to the attention these students need, it has often been left to chance. This book brings together in one place a discussion of issues and needs from the points of view of both graduate education and student affairs. Drawing on the research and practical experiences of leading scholars, the book leads off with excerpts from a graduate student's diary and then reviews the current landscape of graduate education. The challenge to graduate education and student affairs concludes the volume. This is the 72nd issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Student Services.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Here's a breakthrough sourcebook that not only argues that student affairs professionals need to assume leadership roles in campus facilities issues, but also provides step-by-step guidelines in building a successful facility project from the first brainstorming session to the final coat of paint. Editor Jerry Price, dean of students at Drake University, and contributors from all walks of the student affairs profession demonstrate that student affairs professionals are in a unique position of understanding the role of the campus in environment in students' lives. Chapters explore balancing multiple needs through innovative facility design, options for financing residence hall renovation and construction, and the relationship between housing programs and facilities and the institution's education mission. Applicable information on assembling the project team, the role of communication, and ten key lessons for facilities planning, renovation, and building are also presented. Lessons learned in the field are explored as well. The UConn 2000 Initiative Case Study tells the story of one institution's success in developing and implementing a public policy initiative that would lead to billions of dollars in renewed investment in the university's core infrastructure. Student affairs professionals live with students, see how they interact with one another, hear why they picked this particular school, and listen to the reasons they are succeeding or failing. Their education and experience lie in understanding how residence halls, student unions, dining services, recreation and wellness centers, and campus grounds each affect students' experience in different ways. This book demonstrates conclusively that the valuable expertise of student affairs professionals is therefore critical to ensuring that campus facilities projects ultimately achieve their intended goals.
