This revised fourth edition contains 20 new cases reflecting current campus issues, including identity, study abroad, social media, bullying, housing and food insecurity, student activism, and other perennial campus issues. An excellent teaching tool, this book provides a comprehensive and realistic set of challenges to prepare aspiring student affairs professionals for the increasingly complex college environment.

Features include:

  • A structure that sets the stage for case study methods and links student affairs theory with practical applications.
  • Cases written by well-known and respected contributors set in a wide variety of institution types and locations.
  • Over 35 complex case studies reflecting the multifaceted issues student affairs professionals face in today’s college environment.
