Kate Boyle, Associate Professor and Director of the Leadership in Student Affairs Program in the Department of Leadership, Policy & Administration in the College of Education, Leadership and Counseling has coedited a monograph published by the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) titled “Reflections on the 75th Anniversary of the Student Personnel Point of View,” along with John Wesley Lowery and John A. Mueller from Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s Student Affairs and Higher Education faculty.
The monograph contains a reproduction of the original “The Student Personnel Point of View” as it appeared when it was published in 1937, along with a collection of essays authored by scholars in the student affairs profession who reflect on the significance and enduring value of the document.
“The Student Personnel Point of View” was an influential report that emerged from a study group formed by the American Council on Education. The intent was to offer a perspective on the importance of—and provide a focus for—the profession of student affairs as it was developing throughout U.S. colleges and universities in the 1930s.
ACPA is one of the leading professional associations serving more than 8,500 practitioners, graduate preparation faculty members, and graduate students in the student affairs profession. For more information on this monograph, visit ACPA Internal Publications.
Congratulations to faculty member Stephen Brookfield, Ph.D., for winning the 2012 Cyril O. Houle World Award for Literature in Adult Education.

He will be presented with the award on November 8th at the AAACE Awards dinner at the annual conference in Las Vegas.
