What kind of Student Affairs Professional would I be if I did not include theories in work daily? Theories allow professionals insight into the development of college students so that we may create more effective programs, policies, and structures to continually challenge and support them.
This section of my website will be dedicated to showcasing student development theories from various resources on the web, including presentations from my colleagues in classes or conferences. If you have a theory you love and want to see it on my website- please let me know! I’m constantly adding new information!
In the meantime, check out this “cheat sheet” on some student development theories from the School of Interdisciplinary and Graduate Studies at the University of Louisville.
