- Learning Reconsidered: A Campus-Wide Focus on the Student Experience (2004)
Edited by Richard P. Keeling
Learning Reconsidered argues for the integration of all of higher education's resources in the education and preparation of the whole student. The publication re-examines widely accepted ideas about conventional teaching and learning and questions whether current organizational patterns in higher education support student learning and development in today's environment. This landmark publication builds upon historical student affairs statements that focus on student affairs as a profession and is a critical resource for every student affairs professional.
- Gambling, Its Effects, and Prevalence on College Campuses: Implications for Student Affairs (2002)
By George McClellan, James Caswell, Beth Beck, Carol Graves Holladay, Alice A. Mitchell, and Kathleen Wong O'Connor
While campus health topics such as substance use, risky sexual behaviors, depression, and violence have captured the attention of student affairs professionals, there is another health issue that has received far less attention: problem gambling. Understanding this issue affords student affairs professionals the important opportunity to recognize its occurrence, deter its effects, and improve student learning and persistence. This invited paper focuses on a NASPA study that examined problem gambling among students and its effects on their behavior. The paper offers student affairs professionals recommendations for action based on the research.
