Sample text

The Canadian Association of College and University Student Services (CACUSS) now stands as the premier professional organization for some 1,000 members who gather at annual and regional conferences to develop new understandings of the Canadian post-secondary experience and to promote best practices in serving students. The first curriculum for formal preparation of student services administrators and practitioners has been established at Memorial University of Newfoundland, in the form of accessible (Internet-based or in-class) training at the master’s level.

STUDENT DEVELOPMENT THEORY The body of research known as student development theory has attended to questions about: (a) how students’ psychosocial identity formation evolves across the lifespan, (b) how students make meaning of their experiences through advancement of cognitive-structural development, and (c) how students acquire a consistency of approach through development of personal preferences, styles, and types. “Success” from these perspectives might entail resolution of certain developmental tasks (psychosocial development), advancement toward more complex forms of meaning making (cognitive-structural development), and identification and consistency of a personal style (typological development).

This book does just that. As you read it, bear in mind that it also holds the keys to understanding the future of our profession in Canada, a future which honours and builds on our own ecology and our past accomplishments, and which encourages us to look ahead to discover new models, approaches, and practices. It is exactly this commitment to sustaining our profession and our knowledge that will be required for the 21st century. To Donna, Carney, and all of the authors of this book, thank you and congratulations.
