Giving Voice to Critical Campus Issues: Qualitative Research in Student Affairsby Kathleen Manning
Pub. Date: 02/18/1999
This volume of case studies based on original qualitative research has been written expressly for student affairs educators and administrators at the college and university level. "Giving Voice to Critical Campus Issues" addresses the complex issues of classism, student suicide, alcohol-related death, acquaintance rape, multiracial identity, and the self-development of young adults with alcoholic parents. Practitioners and faculty can use this crucial book to enrich their understanding of the deep complexities of campus life; and they will also find themselves more attuned to the often unheard and/or unacknowledged voices of young men and women who have both distinctive needs and dynamic potential. With introductory chapters describing the constructivist qualitative methodology that underlies each case study, this book will serve as an excellent text for graduate-level research classes. It will also be an outstanding resource for undergraduate leadership and residence life classes, and for training and seminars aimed at student affairs staff. Co-published with American College Personnel Association.
