Professionalisation of Student Affairs Educators in China: History, Challenges, and Solutions
Li, Youngshan; Fang, Yuanyuan
Journal of Student Affairs in Africa, v5 n1 p41-50 2017
Student affairs administration in Chinese universities is characterised by a dual-layer system of governance, with student affairs practitioners, i.e. advisors to students, being supervised by either central university administration or by affiliated colleges. In the last decade, government-oriented developments have achieved great success in China. This paper introduces the background and major strategies adopted by the Chinese government in professionalising university advisors. Major challenges are analysed, and solutions to address these challenges are proposed.
