Eduventures Report Takes New Look at College, University Student Affairs Divisions

(PRWEB) December 12, 2007 -- Eduventures' new report, Achieving Strategic Alignment, its most comprehensive to be published on the state of student affairs divisions today, examines a number of critical issues related to strategic alignment, including external alignment, internal alignment, strategic communications, and professional development.

 “  This study provides data and insight that will help student affairs officers meet these demands and succeed in meeting both their short- and long-term goal...  
The report is largely based on analysis of interviews with chief student affairs officers from leading colleges and universities across the United States. It benchmarks current levels of alignment; key participants in the strategic planning process; tenure, experience, and education

Over the years, as student affairs divisions have taken on an increasing number of activities and functions central to the university mission, demands for organizational alignment, performance, and accountability have increased "Over the years, as student affairs divisions have taken on an increasing number of activities and functions central to the university mission, demands for organizational alignment, performance, and accountability have increased," said Eduventures Research Director and Senior Analyst Lisa Famularo, Ph.D. "This study provides data and insight that will help student affairs officers meet these demands and succeed in meeting both their short- and long-term goals."

The report highlights a number of effective practices for aligning unit- and division-level goals and communicating the activities and successes of student affairs to key constituents, as well as strategies for professional development that will help prepare student affairs unit heads for the expanding strategic role of the student affairs division.

Key findings of the report include the following:
Chief student affairs officers are well integrated into the strategic planning of the university; however, a lower level of integration was found to exist between academic affairs and student affairs during strategic planning. Student affairs retreats are generally seen as an effective tool for creating alignment within the division. Digital communication in the form of e-mail and Web communication is viewed as one of the most effective ways for student affairs leaders to communicate with senior university leadership, students, and the university community as a whole. A one-size-fits-all approach to professional development may not work in student affairs. The career path and tenure of unit heads have implications for the design and implementation of professional development programs
Achieving Strategic Alignment is available exclusively to members of the Eduventures Student Affairs Learning Collaborative, a research consortium designed to help member institutions address critical strategic and operational challenges and enhance the student experience.
