Praise for Making Change Happen in Student Affairs

Barr, McClellan, and Sandeen bring decades of experience to this in–depth examination of the most pressing issues facing higher education. Their unique focus on developing successful strategies to address these issues makes this a must–read for senior leadership working in higher education.
Kevin Kruger, president, NASPA

This is an excellent resource for student affairs leaders and practitioners looking for ideas and solutions for engaging change strategies in their work within higher education organizations.
Linda Kuk, chair, Higher Education Leadership Program, and associate professor, Colorado State University

A much needed book for presidents and grad students alike! Excellent background for CEOs as it will help them realize the professional integration of student affairs in college leadership. The use of case studies and reflective questions are very helpful to graduate students and mid–level professionals.
Penelope (Penny) Wills, president, Yavapai College

Leading change in higher education requires insight, passion, and above all courage. This book provides a thoughtful and instructive blueprint for practitioners at every level of the student affairs profession.
