Linking Theory to Practice: Case Studies for Working with College Students
Framed by an overview of theories that guide student affairs practice, the cases in this book present a challenging array of problems that student affairs and higher education personnel face, such as racial diversity, alcohol abuse, and student activism. The revised edition has thirty new cases, with content on issues that reflect the complexity of today’s environment at colleges and universities, including the expanded use of social networking, the rise in mental health issues, bullying, study abroad, and athletics. The fully updated edition includes new references, expanded theory with an increased emphasis on race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, and three entirely new chapters on admissions, student identity, and campus life. An excellent teaching tool, this book challenges students to consider multiple overlapping issues within a single case study.
