In this episode of SA Voices from the field you will meet Dr. Kyle Ashlee, as we talk about The Student Affairs State of Affairs. The concepts shared in this podcast come from a researched blog article. He began researching for the essay in August of 2019 by putting a call out to the Student Affairs Professionals Facebook page and his network of colleagues asking folks to share the top three issues on their mind as they entered the academic year. The responses he got were overwhelming and the trends were undeniable.
After compiling the responses and analyzing them, he came up with the top 10 issues on the minds of student affairs professionals. From there, he went on to make connections between those issues and the larger influence of neoliberalism on higher education. Finally, he shared some insights about what professionals can do to promote their own wellness, the well-being of their students, and their institutions. All of these issues are shared in this great episode.
