Self-Authorship in Student Affairs: A Developmental Paradox
Shetty, Rebecca; Chunoo, Vivechkanand S.; Cox, Bradley E.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v53 n2 p131-145 2016
The emerging millennial generation of young professionals in student affairs, often accused of being shielded from many of life's developmentally stimulating challenges, may not be sufficiently self-authored to effectively facilitate epistemological, intrapersonal, and interpersonal development among their students. Contrary to expectations, however, results from this study suggest current graduate assistants and recent job-changers have higher levels of self-authorship than their colleagues. Implications for graduate preparation, professional practice, and future research are discussed.
