More About This Textbook


A comprehensive resource for the legal context for interacting with families of students, this volume is also a philosophical examination of the increasing levels of expectation and participation families have in the student's college experience. Parents, stepparents, grandparents, and others who serve as guardians of college students are challenging administrators to address their concerns in a variety of areas, including admissions and financial aid processes, orientation programs, residence life, and alumni and development activities. Institutions can respond by defining the role of the family in the campus community and articulating student success as the basis for interactions. This volume presents effective strategies for student services professionals to collaborate and coordinate in creating a consistent message of engagement for the families of today's college students.

This is the 94th issue of the Jossey-Bass series New Directions for Student Services.

Table of Contents

Editors' Notes (Bonnie V. Daniel, B. Ross Scott).

1. Understanding Family Involvement in the College Experience Today (Bonnie V. Daniel, Scott G. Evans, B. Ross Scott).
With the parents of today's college students challenging traditional policies and philosophical approaches to student development, administrators must develop a consistent and coordinated message that meets their changing needs.

2. Parental Involvement in Admissions and Financial Aid (Douglas K. Lange, Michael E. Stone).
Increasing involvement of parents in admissions and financial aid processes expands the role of these two functional areas beyond simple enrollment goals.

3. More Than Punch and Cookies: A New Look at Parent Orientation Programs (Karen Levin Coburn, Bill Woodward).
This chapter presents novel approaches to parent orientation programs that are based on emerging family constellations and the changing expectations of parents.

4. Family-Friendly FERPA Policies: Affirming Parental Partnerships (Kent M. Weeks).
Offering a historical perspective, this chapter describes how amendments to the legislation continue to redefine the relationships among parents, institutions, and students.

5. Balancing the Role of Parents in the Residential Community (James F. Conneely, Claire Good, Kristi Perryman).
This chapter examines the issues associated with familial involvement in a residential community and offers strategies for fostering positive relationships with parents.

6. Partnering with Families Through Institutional Advancement (Dion McInnis).
Increased involvement of alumni and development offices with parents suggests the need for student affairs professionals to coordinate messages, programs, and services with their colleagues in advancement.

7. The President's Role in Partnering with Parents (Dennis C. Golden).
Because the impact of parental involvement extends beyond student affairs, a consistent message regarding the role of families on the campus must emanate from senior leadership and apply to all areas of administration.

8. Why Parents of Undergraduates Matter to Higher Education (B. Ross Scott, Bonnie V. Daniel).
This chapter highlights the significant themes of this volume and provides resources for higher education professionals seeking to improve familial involvement on their campus.
