Description

This issue collects reflections, stories, and advice about the art and practice of student affairs leadership. Ten senior student affairs leaders were asked to maintain a journal and record their personal reflections on practical wisdom they have gained in the profession. The authors didn't rely heavily on the literature for this research. Rather, they looked inside themselves to provide personal and candid insight into the convictions and values that have guided them in their work and lives. The pieces they have written about work, families, successes, failures, and other experiences reflect a shared sense of deep gratitude for a profession that has enriched their lives.

This is the 98th issue of the quarterly report New Directions for Student Services.
