Chapter Eight: Leadership in Student Affairs
LEADERSHIP IN STUDENT AFFAIRS
This chapter focuses on student affairs leadership in the community college. Specific attention will be given to four areas: (1) the disconnect between academic affairs and student affairs and its implications on student learning and personal development; (2) foundational and guiding student affairs documents (e.g., the Student Learning Initiative, Principles of Good Practice, Student Personnel Point of View); (3) the core functions of student affairs in relation to effective leadership practices; and (4) student development theory, with a primary focus on psychosocial theories.
When reading this chapter, consider the following questions:
•Why is there dissonance between the divisions of academic and student affairs? How does this effect student and institutional success? How can student affairs and academic affairs programming/services work cohesively to enhance student learning and personal development? What are the benefits of establishing a cohesive collaboration between these divisions?
