One Size Does Not Fit All: Traditional and Innovative Models of Student Affairs Practice

Front Cover
Routledge, Oct 2, 2012 - Education - 200 pages

Though student affairs has been a recognized field of its own since 1937, most literature on the subject takes a "one size fits all" approach, giving little attention to the differing models of student affairs practice and their diversity across institutions. This book departs from such a uniform approach to explore instead eleven possible models of student affairs practice, including both traditional and innovative programs. Based on a longitudinal research project of 20 institutions, One Size Does Not Fit All highlights a variety of policies, practices, and programs that can all contribute to student success and learning.
