About the Book
What issues and trends affect higher education and student affairs today? In this fully updated handbook, leading experts discuss the answer to this and other essential questions. They provide a definitive reference for student affairs professionals at all levels of administration and management. The handbook offers specific, practical advice as well as broad approaches to planning and problem solving. It contains modernized discussions on such critical topics as institutional mission, institutional governance, understanding campus environments, finance and budgeting, assessment, program planning, staff selection, training and evaluation, and much more.

My Take on the Book
As a Student Affairs Professional, this was a book that really walks you step-by-step through the profession and what we do on a daily basis to support the students that we work with. It is a totally complete resource for all Student Affairs Personnel. I had read an earlier edition of this, and this is even more complete than the last time I read this. I have staff that never studied Student Affairs so this is going to be a great resource that I can draw from to assist them in better serving their students as well as furthering their own professional development in the field. This was well written and a book that I am so glad that I had the opportunity to re-read and experience again.
