How many hate or bias incidents occurred on your campus this past year? Did any students opt out of filing formal charges? How many completed a formal resolution process, and what happened? Would you have liked to have other conflict resolution options? Social justice theory provides the lens for expanding our conception of student conduct administration, and the foundation for considering systemic changes in practice - changes that are vital to address the concerns and issues raised by an increasingly diverse student population. Using this lens, this book casts new light on existing principles and current practices; makes issues of power, privilege and oppression manifest; and offers a vision for expanding resolution practices to empower today's students to resolve their own conflicts. Complementing the "Model Student Disciplinary Code", this book opens up a whole new range of approaches and models that readers can adapt to their institutional circumstances. Starting from the principle that systems and models are vehicles through which to act on our values, and by focusing on such core values as the commitment to student development, freedom of expression, diversity, accessibility, individual rights and shared responsibilities in a community of learners, the contributors reveal the utility and contemporary relevance of a number of underutilized resolution practices. Part I provides a framework for transforming student conduct administration using conflict resolution methods and social and restorative justice practices. Part II, devotes a chapter to explaining each of the seven 'Spectrum Model Pathways' to conflict resolution that form the core of this book: Dialogue, Conflict Coaching, Facilitated Dialogue, Mediation, Restorative Justice Practices, Shuttle Diplomacy, and traditional formal student conduct processes informed by social justice theory. Part III provides practical application tools for the ideas presented in this text, including discussion of change management and assessment, and concludes with an overview of programs from across the country using inclusive conflict resolution methods in student conduct work. This is a book for anyone concerned about issues of access and justice for all students - regardless of race, sexual orientation, belief, or ability - and seeking to develop and implement restorative and safe practices for their campus community.
This volume, for the first time, presents the total physical world of the college campus as a bona fide art form. It analyzes the aesthetic elements involved in the spawning and savaging of college grounds. The ideal campus design, once defined, is held up to over 100 campuses throughout the United States, and the relative artistic merit of each evaluated. Both the best and the worst in campus design are critically observed from the standpoint of urban space, architectural quality, landscape, and overall appeal. Variables such as regional differences, historical perspective, expansion, and visual focus also figure in the evaluation. A list of the fifty most artistically successful campuses in the country concludes this highly readable and yet academically valid work exploring a discrete artistic discipline.
There has been increasing attention in recent years, both positive and negative, on college student mental health and the provision of counseling services on campus. At the same time, there continue to be misperceptions of college counselors, both within and outside college campuses. Drawing on over 20 years of experience as a college counselor, Dr. Sharkin addresses these misunderstandings, providing a detailed description and discussion of the many roles and contributions these professionals have.
He explores topics such as the history of college counseling and its evolution, who college counselors are, how someone can become a college counselor, and what skills are needed to be a college counselor today. Roles and responsibilities, including counseling, crisis intervention, consultation, outreach, and administrative duties, are discussed in detail and supplemented with both research and case studies. Diversity competencies and special challenges faced by today's college counselors are also considered. This engaging and accessible book will be a valuable resource for those already working in college mental health settings and those wishing to enter the field.
