Managing Information Technology in Student Affairs: A Report on Policies, Practices, Staffing, and Technology
PROCEEDINGS

Annual Conference of the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators,

Abstract

This pilot study looks into how information technology practices are being conducted in student affairs. It compares common practices against which exemplary programs and best practices can be measured. After gathering information from five universities, a model was created that encompassed policy, staffing, technology, and practice as the best ways to describe the current practices of information technology. Many similarities and differences were found among the campuses in the use of information technology, but most campuses do not make full advantage of it. Integrated Student Affairs technology plans are just beginning to be developed on campuses. Student Affairs professionals are not yet engaged in campus wide information technology planning and decision making. Campuses need a plan for practice, staffing, and technology to meet the need and to address emerging issues for tomorrow. (JDM)
