This study describes the job goals and communication patterns of staff in a coalition of student personnel offices at a large urban university. The sample was comprised of 174 professional staff members in 15 different offices that are part of the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs at the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities). Results of the study indicated that a majority of staff endorsed ten common job goals. These included both general educational goals and more specific service goals. A majority of the staff from other offices in the coalition perceived their job goals as similar to those of the staff in the Campus Assistance Center, Student Counseling Bureau, Orientation Office and the International Student Adviser's Office. The Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, Special Counseling Office (Discipline), Parents' Association, and the Campus Assistance Center initiated communication most frequently with more offices in the coalition.
