Students in the field, as well as experienced practitioners and administrators, will herein find an up-to-date and in-depth study of the major student affairs functions of a comprehensive campus program. Within its covers, the graduate student will find chapters describing everything the person new to student affairs needs to know about the major service functions of the modern student affairs division. Student affairs administrators will find the fourteen chapters in this book very helpful in furthering their understanding of the major functions in the field. It will also be useful in helping the chief student affairs officer to articulate the needs of the various programs in an understandable and persuasive manner in order to convince others outside of student affairs that the policies and programs they propose are worthy of support. The first two chapters, thoughtfully revised from the previous edition of the book, provide the philosophical and historical tools to clarify assumptions, values and concerns. The enrollment management chapters on admissions, financial aid, academic advising, and orientation interweave conceptually into one package loosely constructed at one institution and tightly constructed at others. Residence life, orientation, judicial affairs, career services, student activities, financial aid and multicultural affairs provide an interesting, united focus on learning and living skills. Counseling, career services, and health services help focus on an integrated, wellness orientation to life. The final chapter of the book examines three central issues (social justice, student learning, and professionalism) that typify the current challenges facing our continually evolving profession and higher education. For staff who want to read further, there are up-to-date references at the end of each chapter.
