This book constitutes a collection of case studies that explore issues faced by new professionals in student affairs, with the scenarios designed to develop ACPA/NASPA Professional Competencies. These cases provide opportunities to create meaningful learning experiences for courses, training programs, and the mentoring of new professionals, giving them exposure to the kinds of dilemmas they will encounter as they assume their leadership roles or start out on supervisory positions. The cases are derived from interviews with current student affairs professionals, are based on real life dilemmas, reflect contemporary issues on our college campuses, and are designed to be easily used or adapted across all institutional types. The cases cover the areas of advising and helping; assessment, evaluation and research; equity, diversity, and inclusion; ethical professional practice; history, values, and philosophy; human and organizational resources; law, policy, and governance; leadership; personal foundations; and student learning and development, and vary in length to allow for multiple uses. Shorter cases can be role-played and discussed in leadership training workshops, while longer cases can be used as take-home assignments or debated during longer training sessions. The book begins with advice on how to use the cases and concludes with general advice provided by current professionals in the field.

The goal of this book is to help the reader gain knowledge on ethical and legal issues in the field of student affairs and develop competency to follow the profession’s principles and standards of conduct. The significance of the book is due to its focus on the practical value of ethics and legal issues and its aim to address the knowledge, skills, and dispositions required of student affairs educators to develop and maintain integrity in their life and work as described by the ACPA/NASPA. The text offers readers a number of major unique features: It offers multiple ethical decision-making models to guide student affairs educators in their ethical decision-making process. It proposes that ethics is not an individual but an organizational responsibility. It offers that ethical decision making is a professional skill that can be practiced and applied in student affairs educators’ day-to-day practice. It presents the reader with the most current legal issues in student affairs and higher education. Finally, it reflects three themes: integration of ACPA/NASPA competency areas; development of professional identity; and application of knowledge and theory to practice. The book is critical and timely. A book that focuses on ethical and legal issues in student affairs is needed for faculty in preparation programs, new professionals navigating their identity as student affairs educators, and a resource for mid- and senior-level professionals facilitating ongoing professional development. The book begins to address what it means to have a professional identity, which is ground in the shared ethical and legal values espoused within the profession and academia. Each chapter uniquely contributes to the complexity embedded in the study of ethics and how that is applied to practice. Additionally, the volume is a balance of procedural knowledge, case illustrations, and guided practice exercises to facilitate the reader’s ability to translate the theory and research discussed into professional decision making and application.
