21st anniversary of the Journal of Student Affairs

April 9, 2012

The Journal of Student Affairs of Colorado State University celebrated its 21st year of annual publication with a reception for students, faculty, staff, and alumni on Monday, March 12, during the CSU Student Affairs in Higher Education/College Student Personnel reception at the NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education national conference.

A focus on educational interests

A graduate student-published scholarly journal, the Journal of Student Affairs aspires to develop a scholarly publication where graduate students and new student affairs professionals can contribute articles focusing on current educational issues and interests in the field of student affairs. The Journal continues to reflect the values of the student affairs profession through encouraging dialogue and conversation around timely research and trends in the field.

As the Journal continues to inform best practices in student affairs through the fresh ideas of graduate students and new professionals, the experiences of seasoned professionals are equally important to engage readers and influence the practice. This year, the Journal is proud to feature an article written by Gwen Dungy. Dungy serves as the Executive Director of NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education and is an accomplished speaker, leader, and educator with more than 30 years of experience in higher education. This year, NASPA and the student affairs community will celebrate Dungy’s accomplishments as she retires from her role as executive director.

Principles guide publication

Seven principles have guided the Journal as it has grown:

  • emerging trends;
  • student development and learning;
  • international and global perspectives;
  • assessment and research;
  • diverse populations and social justice initiatives;
  • organizational change and program practice; and
  • law, governance, and ethics. 

These principles have enabled the Journal to grow and become a globally-recognized publication. This year, the Journal is excited to feature nine scholarly articles addressing these seven principles. The Journal has reached local and global recognition, as it can be found in the CSU library collection and online.
