Enhancing student learning with academic and student affairs collaboration by ProQuest

VIEWS: 18 PAGES: 16

As the student affairs profession developed, expanded, and specialized over the last century, a disconnect occurred between student affairs professionals and academics. Despite that separation, the literature on student affairs in higher education supports the need for movement towards collaboration and integration of academic affairs and student affairs-the curricular and the co-curricular. Making the collaboration successful, however, is not without its challenges. A review finds proven partnerships supporting collaboration, including first-year experience programs, learning communities, student life, and service learning. The article investigates how each partnership area contributes to the academic success of the community college student. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
