This course explores leadership models, approaches, roles, and responsibilities for student affairs professionals in higher education. Student affairs professionals will learn to engage in strategic and purposeful planning by examining Student Affairs components such as student life and engagement, conduct and judicial affairs, career development and services, resident life and education, athletics and recreation, diversity and equity, social media and digital citizenship, and accessibility and accommodation. Furthermore, the course will provide an overview of university bi-cameral governance to develop an understanding of how student affairs components are developed, approved, and implemented successfully in higher education contexts.
