Chief Student Affairs Officers in 2-Year Colleges: Their Demographics and Educational Backgrounds
Keim, Marybelle C.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v32 n4-6 p435-442 Apr 2008
The purpose of this study was to determine demographics and educational backgrounds of chief student affairs officers (CSAOs) in public 2-year colleges. Using systematic sampling techniques, 300 2-year colleges were selected from the AACC Membership Directory for inclusion in the study. Each college's website was visited to determine the name of the CSAO and for any information about this individual. When college catalogs were included online, they were searched for highest degrees of CSAOs. Each CSAO name was entered into Dissertation Abstracts International to identify type of doctoral degree, year of graduation, alma mater, and dissertation topic.
