Student Affairs Book Suggestions


Recommended Posts

There's a lot of great books out there, but my recommendation(s) would likely differ based on what you're hoping to get out of it. For example, if you're looking for a very broad overview of higher education from the academic perspective, I'd go with American Higher Education in the Twenty-First Century: Social, Political, and Economic Challenges (it's now in its fourth edition, and I'd argue it's one of the seminal/overview texts of higher education). I think one of the best books about admissions is The Gatekeepers, so that'd also be high on my list if that is an interest. A more practitioner focused student affairs book that I've heard great things about is Helping College Students: Developing Essential Support Skills for Student Affairs Practice.

If you could provide more information about your interests and/or goals, we may be able to give you a more specific suggestion.
