The Professionalization of Student Affairs Staff. ERIC Digest.
Bloland, Paul A.
It is time for the field of student affairs to put aside its four-decade preoccupation with professional status and recognize that its identity as a field is essentially an administrative convenience linked by an allegiance to a common philosophical perspective on its work and by nature of its clientele and the milieu in which it is practiced. Attention should be turned to the development of a fully professional staff, one that is highly educated and motivated to serve its student clientele. (ABL)
