Classroom and Context: An Educational Dialectic.
Santa Rita, Emilio, Jr.
This paper addresses some of the caveats that student affairs professionals and faculty members must take into account before forging a equal partnership in educating students. Each group must preserve its unique educational point of view, recognizing its identity and its worth. Student affairs people need not become more technically advanced. They must possess identifiable skills and be articulate representatives for higher education as a whole, asserting their identity in the institution. Faculty members need not become more managerial. They should be responsible and sensitive in working with their students and their course material. Faculty need to recognize the legitimacy of non-faculty roles in today's complex colleges and universities, while student affairs administrators need to respect the faculty's specialized educational mission.
