“While the book is most beneficial to new student affairs professionals, it is also useful for seasoned professionals to use as a reference in every day practice. Practical information ranging from the history of student affairs to fiscal pressures on higher education provides a framework that truly guides professionals through most aspects of the student affairs profession.

Entry level professionals and mid-level administrators often lack conflict management and this manual provides clear and simple examples for student affairs professionals to begin to build their own style.

Whether one is a faculty member, academic advisor, financial aid officer, or director of a student services center, The Handbook of Student Affairs is a useful tool that can help professionals at any level navigate their way through a career in student affairs.”
