The topic of collaboration between academic and student affairs is now more important than ever if colleges and universities are to create seamless learning environments and educate students for the new collaborative work context. Institutions face the challenge of showing students by their own behavior that they are committed to collaboration, while still acknowledging that partnerships can be messy, that they can take more time, and that they can be frustrating. This volume examines authentic models of collaboration that will help to develop successful student leaders for the new century. It reviews the results of a national study on academic and student affairs collaborations and provides organizational models and facilitators of change as well as examples of facilitative strategies in action. With research and actual applications in the field, this volume is a significant resource for institutions seeking to foster successful collaborative relationships between academic and student affairs.
This is the 116th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Higher Education.
