Shifting Paradigms is addressed to all student affairs professionals whose primary focus is student learning. Faculty members in preparation programs, senior administrators and student development educators in residence halls, student unions or career counseling offices will use the ideas presented in different ways. Nevertheless, the book has a common purpose for all readers which is to assert the educational functions of student affairs and services, and to situate student development education solidly within the mission of colleges and universities in the United States. This goal is achieved through examination of some of the diversity issues which are troubling so many campuses today. Diversity is broadly construed to include differences related to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender and disability status as well as differences in perspective generated by professional roles and philosophy. This book presents a new paradigm for the profession of student affairs and the practice of student development. Co-published with American College Personnel Association.
