"This book offers a powerful catalyst for conversation, challenging us in the student affairs profession to think deeply and differently about the ‘what,’ ‘how,’ and ‘why’ of our work. I will read sections of this book with my colleagues, and together we will use our learning to transform our organization."
Larry D. Roper, vice provost for student affairs, Oregon State University
"Rethinking Student Affairs Practice does for student affairs what The Fifth Discipline and Peter Senge did for the corporate sector and learning organizations. It makes you think, both differently and better."
Jerrold L. Stein, dean of students, Stony Brook University
"I loved this book and will be using it in the future. It will be particularly valuable for students of higher education and entry–level professionals to read and learn new ways to think and lead our institutions to greater effectiveness."
Frances Lucas, president, Millsaps College
"This is the book all student affairs professionals need to read. It provides the basis for ‘visioning the future’ of all that we do in student affairs."
Doug Woodard, professor of higher education, University of Arizona
"This book challenges you to see more and think more about our work and the lost potential when one limits the dimensions of our humanity. A must for every student affairs professional who is asking, what’s next and how do I make a difference?"
Gregory Roberts, executive director and senior operating officer, American College Personnel Association
