Student affairs and services professionals are experiencing many changes in the way they conduct their traditional programming and support initiatives. One of these major changes stems from rapid developments in the field of Information Technology (IT), including computer programming applications, efficiency models, and innovative techniques centered around student support. How these professionals adapt to such changes will impact on how student services are managed and delivered. This folio presents a discussion of the current state of student affairs and services, preparation initiatives for new professionals entering this area, and future directions the profession may take. The primary research question addressed was: How can student affairs professionals embrace, adapt, and utilize information technology in the profession?
This folio was a study of various research initiatives from post-secondary administrators and managers including articles, books, and research projects detailing IT impacts. In addition, interviews were conducted with six post-secondary administrators in the field of, or related to, student services. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
