In this important volume, the authors focus on the connections between academic learning and student affairs. Beginning with the premise that academic learning is a critical part of the overall personal development of each student, the authors show how student affairs professionals can work in harmony with their academic colleagues to create a campus milieu that is truly conducive to that development. Such a milieu would offer a rich array of social, athletic, academic, and artistic events, all of which would enrich, enhance, and give deeper meaning to the learning that occurs in the classroom. With its emphasis upon partnership building and interdisciplinary collaboration, this work will be extremely useful to student affairs professionals, college administrators, and faculty members as they work together to design courses and programs that will optimize student learning. Co-published with American College Personnel Association.

The authors' arguments are clearly and efficiently presented using a practitioner discourse that is rooted in published research findings and practical work experiences. The case studies illustrate numerous "how-to-get-started" suggestions for student affairs staff who want to work in harmony with faculty and other academic affairs staff.--Journal of Higher Education
