Since it was first published, Student Services has become a classic reference in the field. In this edition, a new panel of student affairs scholars examines the student experience in higher education, the evolution of the role of student affairs professionals, and the philosophies, ethics, and theories that guide the practice of student affairs work. This new edition covers a broad range of relevant topics including legal issues, managing student affairs programs, leadership, conflict resolution, community development professionalism, and developing institutional partnerships. It also addresses the future of the practice.
