Student Political Engagement In The Co-Curriculum: Understanding The Role Of Senior Student Affairs Officers, Demetri L. Morgan, Cecilia M. Orphan Dec 2015

Student Political Engagement In The Co-Curriculum: Understanding The Role Of Senior Student Affairs Officers, Demetri L. Morgan, Cecilia M. Orphan

Demetri L. Morgan, Ph.D.

The apolitical nature of the civic engagement movement poses challenges to our 
democracy (Saltmarsh & Hartley, 2011). The co-curricular experience is well positioned to 
address this phenomenon but little research exists to inform practice. This qualitative study 
uncovers how the socialization of senior student affairs officers (SSAO) influences 
approaches to student civic/political development. Implications for practice and future 
research are presented based on the findings from the study.

The Personal Is Political: Fostering A Culture Of Student Political Engagement, Demetri L. Morgan, Cecilia M. Orphan

Demetri L. Morgan, Ph.D.

The mission statements of many institutions describe commitments to larger democratic purposes, including fostering student political engagement. Hundreds of campuses have sought to reclaim this mission over the past two decades. However, at issue is whether higher education is truly committed to this ideal moving forward; and if so, how to best to realize the ideal. Presenters will help attendees consider the ways to help foster a culture of student political engagement, based on findings from the study, A Crucible Moment: College Learning and Democracy (2012).

Connecting To Get Things Done: A Conceptual Model Of The Process Used To Respond To Bias Incidents, Lucy A. Lepeau, Demetri L. Morgan, Hilary B. Zimmerman, J.T. Snipes, Beth A. Marcotte

Demetri L. Morgan, Ph.D.

In this study, we interviewed victims of bias incidents and members of a bias response team to investigate the process the team used to respond to incidents. Incidents included acts of sexism, homophobia, and racism on a large, predominantly White research university in the Midwest. Data were analyzed using a 4-stage coding process. The emergent model focused on the way the bias response team members connected to students, other team members, and colleagues from across campus to respond to the bias incidents. Important tensions that team members navigate also became evident and are depicted in the model. Findings from this ...

The Development, Validity, And Reliability Of A Psychometric Instrument Measuring Competencies In Student Affairs, Rishi Sriram Dec 2013

The Development, Validity, And Reliability Of A Psychometric Instrument Measuring Competencies In Student Affairs, Rishi Sriram

Rishi Sriram, Ph.D.

The study of competencies in student affairs began more than 4 decades ago, but no instrument currently exists to measure competencies broadly. This study builds upon previous research by developing an instrument to measure student affairs competencies. Results not only validate the competencies espoused by NASPA and ACPA, but also suggest adding a new competency and dividing some existing competencies into separate ones. Competency strengths, competency weaknesses, and implications for current practice and future research are discussed.

Using Mixed Methods To Create A Culture Of Assessment, Demetri L. Morgan, John Zilvinskis

department. By reviewing the literature; interviewing higher education faculty, departmental partners,

and staff members; and surveying the department; the new professionals were able to create an effective

assessment training and provide departmental strategies that led to a standing workgroup to interweave assessment, evaluation, and research into the practice of departmental professionals. This project in

assessment provides several examples of how departmental stakeholders can begin creating a culture of

assessment ...

Reclaiming The "Scholar" In Scholar-Practitioner, Rishi Sriram, Meghan Oster Dec 2011

Reclaiming The "Scholar" In Scholar-Practitioner, Rishi Sriram, Meghan Oster

Rishi Sriram, Ph.D.

Scholars and practitioners continuously espouse the importance of research in student affairs work. This study empirically examined student affairs professionals’ engagement in research. Results indicated that professionals desire to engage research, but struggle to do so regularly. Gender and education are not factors in level of research engagement, but job level is. Graduate students reported significantly higher research engagement than did full-time professionals.


Engaging Research As A Student Affairs Professional, Rishi R. Sriram Oct 2011

Engaging Research As A Student Affairs Professional, Rishi R. Sriram

Rishi Sriram, Ph.D.

Student affairs professionals are often referred to as scholar-practitioners. As demands upon professionals increase, however, it is all too easy for the “practitioner” part to completely overtake the “scholar.” If we find ourselves too busy even to read research, perhaps it is time to pause, re-establish our priorities, and reclaim the “scholar” in scholar-practitioner.

Reflecting On The Past; Shaping The Future Of Student Affairs, Michael J. Stebleton, Marina B. Aleixo Jan 2011

Reflecting On The Past; Shaping The Future Of Student Affairs, Michael J. Stebleton, Marina B. Aleixo

Michael J. Stebleton

The purpose of this essay is to offer several reflections on the content of the Envisioning Student Affairs document co-published by ACPA and NASPA. The metaphor of a public art exhibit with five reflective questions is used to inspire educators to think critically about serving students. As the demographics of students pursuing higher education changes, we urge a recommitment to historically underserved student populations. This call to service invokes a social justice philosophy when we serve historically marginalized student groups, including immigrants, students of color, and first-generation learners. Doing so will engage students and reenergize our commitment to the profession.

In this media feature, we provide a brief synopsis and review of the film; outline student development theories and how they can be integrated into the main themes of the film; and describe how student affairs practitioners might apply key concepts and issues to several campus contexts.
