Description

Over the past four decades, programming has continued to be a viable strategy for transmitting knowledge, affecting skills development, changing attitudes, and helping students reach their potential both on and off campus. This volume will assist student affairs professionals as they plan, implement, and evaluate their educational interventions on college and university campuses. From planning a lunchtime seminar to conducting a semester-long support group, this sourcebook will provide readers with guidance on implementing programming that is powerful, relevant, and focused on learning. The contributors detail each step of program assessment, planning, implementation, and outcome evaluation. They explain the importance of collaborating with faculty and others, illustrating several types of programming partnerships with four brief case studies and examine the significant partnership aspects that led to programming success. The contributors also explore two of today's most relevant programming topics--multicultural competence and sexual violence--and provide an overview of a number of promising programs covering such areas as service learning, leadership, community-building, alcohol awareness, and diversity.
