A recurrent theme in the higher education literature points to a perennial schism between the curriculum and co-curriculum, marked by compartmentalization of professional responsibilities into the organizational divisions of Academic and Student Affairs, which has resulted in a splintering of holistic student development and liberal (general) education into disjointed parts. These fragmented components need to be reassembled if collegiate institutions intend to promote productive partnerships and build campus community.
Students also need to experience integration of the curriculum and co-curriculum in order to maximize their development in college, and Academic and Student Affairs professionals need each other to realize their respective educational objectives. Unification of the professional forces of academic and student affairs is necessary to promote student retention and graduation rates. Research has repeatedly shown that retention strategies developed and delivered collaboratively through the joint efforts of academic and student affairs result in more comprehensive programs and more positive retention outcomes than programs developed independently and in isolation. Join expert and oft felicitated Joe Cuseo as he walks you through the best strategies and shows you how to make retention and holistic development happen in your institution.
