Identifying Inviolable Behavioral Norms of Campus Housing and Residence Life Professionals
Hirschy, Amy S.; Wilson, Maureen E.; Braxton, John M.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v52 n4 p359-373 2015
Housing and residence life (HRL) administrators who lack knowledge about accepted professional behaviors risk violating normative boundaries, likely jeopardizing themselves or their clients (e.g., students, parents, colleagues). The purpose of this survey study was to understand if a normative structure exists for the administrative role performance of HRL professionals. Findings revealed six inviolable norms, some of which differ by personal and professional characteristics of HRL professionals. The authors offer recommendations to guide practice and research.
