For student affairs educators, administrators, and faculty looking to use the standards to develop, revamp, or generally improve student learning, programs, and services, the CAS Professional Standards and the CAS Self-Assessment Guides are often the go-to resource. Published earlier this year, the first companion guide to the CAS Standards, Using the CAS Professional Standards: Diverse Examples of Practice provides real-life case studies written by practitioners who have successfully applied the standards in their work. The book is the first joint publication of NASPA, CAS, and ACPA.
On this episode of Student Affairs Live, host Heather Shea extends the conversation beyond the basics of CAS to discuss and how student affairs educators might employ these foundational standards within various student affairs functional areas to improve practice. Joining Heather are editors and chapter authors, Dr. Laura Dean, Dr. Shannon Dean, Dr. Yancey Gulley, Alex Lange, and Dr. Jen Wells.
