Let’s Get Real: Developing Effective Scholar-Practitioners by Strengthening the Scholar and Practitioner Relationship (ID 605)

The primary goal of student affairs graduate education is to prepare effective scholar-practitioners. Unfortunately, there may be a disconnect between what students learn in the classroom and their ability to apply these skills. In this session, we describe how we have worked to strengthen relationships between the Division of Student Affairs and student affairs faculty members as one way of aligning the goals of the graduate prep program and the "real" work of student affairs.
