A Pathway to the Presidency: Student Affairs Professionals Are Increasingly Moving into the Top Job on College Campuses
Black Issues in Higher Education, v21 n20 p38 Nov 2004
If a random sampling of student affairs professionals was taken, they'd all agree: without the work they do with students, campus functions would simply grind to a halt. "Student affairs professionals spend 80 percent of their time with students. We do admissions and registration, we house them and feed them, we do the counseling and guidance and all the other things they need to properly develop in the classroom," says Dr. Roosevelt Littleton, president of the National Association of Student Affairs Professionals and special projects manager for Jackson State University's office of development. But ask that same random sampling of student affairs officers how they assess their role within their universities, and it is found that they agree about this, too. "Far too much of the time, we're taken for granted," Littleton adds.
