For new professionals in multicultural student services (MSS), this book constitutes a thorough introduction to the structure, organization, and scope of the services and educational mission of these units. For senior practitioners it offers insights for re-evaluating their strategies, and inspiration to explore new possibilities. The book discusses the history and philosophy of MSS units; describes their operation; asserts the need for integration and coherence across the multiple facets of their work and how their role is influenced by the character and type of their institutions; and considers the challenges and opportunities ahead. The theme Building Bridges, Re-Visioning Community reflects the dual role of MSS. They “build bridges” between underrepresented student populations and the broader institutional environment, between different groups of student populations, and across differences in cultural values and traditions. At a time of increasing diversity on campus, their role is also to champion the “re-visioning” or redefinition of what constitutes community in higher education – in other words to reach beyond serving their traditional constituencies to educate for multicultural competence, and advocate for social justice across the campus commons. This book is organized in four sections moving the reader from the past to the present to the future, and from a service mission to an educational one. Part One reviews the purposes for which MSS were created, and the evolution of their vision, concluding an overview of how units perceive their needs and challenges today. Part Two addresses a range of issues – such as race/ethnicity, sexual orientation / gender identity, and religion/faith diversity – commonly addressed by MSS, and, in recognizing the tensions inherent in serving such disparate constituencies, advances ideas for bringing greater integration and coherence to their work. Part Three considers how institutional context influences the structure and organization of MSS, and addresses such questions as: Who are they serving? What kind of support services and educational programming can they provide? How broadly or narrowly should they define their role, and can they extend their influence through alliances with other campus units? The book concludes by looking at how MSS can re-vision community to ensure their continued relevance to the college or university community. An ACPA Publication

Every aspect of campus life is affected by federal policy. The federal government has become a significant force in the creation of individual campus policies. Student affairs administrators must understand the nature of this federal intervention. This volume of New Directions for Student Services provides an overview of the development of federal intervention and how the rationale for that involvement has changed over time. The laws affecting student life on campus are also examined to help student affairs administrators understand the various mandates they must comply with on a daily basis. This sourcebook also explains the federal policy process so that campus administrators can more effectively exercise their rights to influence that process. Strategies are provided for administrators who must implement federal mandates on campus, as well as warnings to be on guard against the loss of their liberties by overzealous federal enforcers. This is the 68th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Student Services. For more information on the series, please see the Journals and Periodicals page.

The central theme of this volume of New Directions for Student Services is the graduate student experience. It has been assumed that because graduate students have completed undergraduate degrees, they have developed to the point where they can handle the new responsibilities of graduate study on their own. Moreover, because graduate study is characterized as "trial by fire," systems of support are seen as unnecessary. Although there have always been those who have been alert to the attention these students need, it has often been left to chance. This book brings together in one place a discussion of issues and needs from the points of view of both graduate education and student affairs. Drawing on the research and practical experiences of leading scholars, the book leads off with excerpts from a graduate student's diary and then reviews the current landscape of graduate education. The challenge to graduate education and student affairs concludes the volume. This is the 72nd issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Student Services.
