Recommendations for Student Affairs Faculty and Programs: A Content Analysis
Counselor Education and Human Services
A research-based perspective on faculty members working in student affairs graduate preparation programs remains underdeveloped despite their critical role in training emerging practitioners. Although little empirical work directly examines student affairs graduate preparation faculty members, they and the programs they manage are routinely implicated in broader research on higher education and student affairs. This content analysis explores patterns in the practical recommendations made for student affairs faculty members in empirical research articles on graduate preparation published in the past 30 years. Results demonstrate a need to consider the organizational context and limitations for graduate training and to increase other actors' capacities for training emerging student affairs practitioners.
