Violence, hate crimes, theft, drug possession, sexual harassment, concealed weapons, underage drinking, rape - along with many other major and minor offenses - plague all campuses. College and university staff, administrators and policy makers are under increasing parental and legislative pressure to demonstrate they have adopted measures to prevent crime and keep students safe. This book serves as a sourcebook to enhance and evaluate safety programs, generate new solutions and interventions, comply with new legislation, and present practical steps and guidelines to establish best practices. This book pays particular attention to the factors that may give rise to crime. It considers high-risk drinking and examines the intersection between hate crimes and violence. It devotes chapters to discrimination in all its forms - whether against international students, students of color, or on the basis of ethnicity or sexual orientation. It reviews the range of issues relating to harassment and violence against women and engages with hazing and the presence of guns on campus. The authors pay attention to the different circumstances that may apply in specific institutional types, such as community colleges and minority-serving institutions. The book offers perspectives from administrators, campus security, student affairs personnel, faculty and policy makers as well as a review of legal considerations. The purpose is to provide readers with the context and tools to devise a comprehensive safety plan. For administrators operating with few formal support systems, advice is given on how to co-opt individuals and resources from around the campus to assist in the common goal of maintaining a safe and welcoming campus.

Examines strategies and best practices that effectively integrate LGBTQ areas of teaching and research with student life activities. Many educational professionals agree that the time has come to expand their circle of inclusion and broaden their definition of diversity by increasing LGBTQ studies, but the question of how to do so is still debated. Although some colleges and universities have been incorporating LGBTQ studies for decades, courses and programs continue to be pockets of innovation rather than models of inclusion for all of higher education. Colleges and universities need to encourage faculty members to teach and research a wide range of LGBTQ topics, as well as support student life professionals in building inclusive campus communities. This book includes testimonies that alert educators to possible pitfalls and successes of their policies through an analysis of changing student attitudes. Based on these case studies, the contributors offer practical suggestions for the classroom and the provost’s office, demonstrating not only the gains that have been made by LGBTQ students and the institutions that serve them, but also the tensions that remain. “Expanding the Circle is a comprehensive overview of issues facing LGBTQ students in higher education in the US and those seeking to ‘queer the academy’ through incorporating LGBTQ content into curricula. It highlights problems we might not have imagined—a closeted gay man being harassed by those who are more ‘out’—and describes issues we would have hoped were history—faculty and staff telling students not to list a certificate in LGBTQ studies on a resume. This book presents proven strategies to create affirming institutions of higher learning in which students and faculty can be their full selves and study the contributions of LGBTQ people to the human experience.” — Sean Cahill, coauthor of LGBT Youth in America’s Schools

Is the data available on your college campus fully utilized? Analyzing data does not have to be a complex process, but there can be obstacles to putting data to good use: overworked staff or understaffed departments; silos that prevent crossing institutional boundaries; lack of research training; or simply being overwhelmed by the possibilities. Addressing these obstacles, this volume presents pragmatic ideas for implementing data-informed decision making to improve student affairs practice. It first illustrates how to easily analyze quantitative data and read assessment reportsï¿1⁄2demonstrating that advanced research knowledge is not necessary to make meaning of survey findings. It then provides suggestions for utilizing findings from large data sets typically available on campus and gives practical guidance for making sense of and using quantitative data to inform practice. Also included is how to use data to understand the experiences of non-dominant populations on campus, which is especially relevant given the diversity of todayï¿1⁄2s college students. Several chapters speak directly to using data to understand marginalized groups based on race, religion, and sexual orientation, while others focus on using data to understand campus diversity experiences. This is the 159th volume of this Jossey-Bass higher education quarterly series. An indispensable resource for vice presidents of student affairs, deans of students, student counselors, and other student services professionals, New Directions for Student Services offers guidelines and programs for aiding students in their total development: emotional, social, physical, and intellectual.

In Domestic Violence: Intersectionality and Culturally Competent Practice, experts working with twelve unique groups of domestic abuse survivors provide the latest research on their populations and use a case study approach to demonstrate culturally sensitive intervention strategies. Chapters focus on African Americans, Native Americans, Latinas, Asian and Pacific Island communities, persons with disabilities, immigrants and refugees, women in later life, LGBT survivors, and military families. They address domestic violence in rural environments and among teens, as well as the role of religion in shaping attitudes and behavior. Lettie L. Lockhart and Fran S. Danis are editors of the Council of Social Work Education's popular teaching modules on domestic violence and founding co-chairs of the CSWE symposium on violence against women and children. In their introduction, they provide a thorough overview of intersectionality, culturally competent practice, and domestic violence and basic practice strategies, such as universal screening, risk assessment, and safety planning. They follow with collaborative chapters on specific populations demonstrating the value of generalist social work practice, including developing respectful relationships that define issues from the survivor's perspective; collecting and assessing data; setting goals and contracting; identifying culturally specific interventions; implementing culturally appropriate courses of action; participating in community-level strategies; and advocating for improved policies and funding at local, state, and federal levels. Featuring resources applicable to both practitioners and clients, Domestic Violence forms an effective tool for analysis and action.

Author Elizabeth D. Hutchison's multidimensional framework (Person, Environment, and Time) for human behavior theory courses helps instructors organize course material in a meaningful way for students. This EPAS-ready text provides students with a comprehensive and readable global perspective on the person and environment construct, weaving powerful case studies with recent innovations in theory and research. The companion text, Dimensions of Human Behavior: The Changing Life Course, covers the dimension of human behavior across time. Together, these two textbooks provide the most comprehensive coverage available for theory courses. Order the books together with bundle ISBN: 978-1-4129-8881-0. This core text is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate Human Behavior and the Social Environment courses in departments of social work and psychology. "Through its close-knit, and yet, broad and comprehensive treatment of all aspects of human behavior, Dimensions of Human Behavior: Person and Environment achieves its superiority over the one-paradigm human behavior books that run into unavoidable stereotypes of human behavior, and leave out necessary details about the investigated case, because of the limited scope of a single paradigm. It is indeed ‘a multidimensional approach for multifaceted social work’. It is strengthened further by its multicultural and global case studies, and state of the art developments in the social and behavioral sciences that have been added to the new edition composing another dimension in which the book casts human behavior. Therefore, I daresay, Dimensions of Human behavior: Person and Environment makes the fascinating subject of human behavior even more intriguing." - Alfred T. Kisubi, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh

The first edition of this book constituted a comprehensive resource for students of higher education, faculty, higher education administrators and student affairs leaders engaging with multiculturalism and diverse populations on college campuses. It was one of the first texts to gather in a single volume the related theories, assessment methods, and environmental and application issues pertinent to the study and practice of multiculturalism, while also offering approaches to enhancing multicultural programming and culturally diverse campus environments. This second edition retains the structure and vision of the first, introducing readers to the key theories and models for understanding the complexity of the students they serve, and for reflecting on their own values and motivations. It provides an array of case studies, discussion questions, examples of best practice, and recommendations about resources for use in the classroom. This edition includes a new chapter on intersectionality; updates several chapters, presents a number of new cultural frameworks and updated best practices for creating an inclusive environment for marginalized groups, and expands the third section of the book on cultural competent practice.

COLLEGE MEN and Masculinities is a comprehensive handbook that offers a compilation of the best classic and contemporary research on male students in higher education. The editors, Shaun R. Harper and Frank Harris III—two experts in the field of men and masculinities—frame each of the six sections of the book with a summary of issues and implications for educational practice. Each section also includes a wealth of forward-thinking strategies and suggestions that faculty and institutional leaders can creatively employ on their campuses to reverse problematic trends and outcomes among male undergraduates. With contributions from leading scholars in education, sociology, psychology, and other disciplines, College Men and Masculinities explores the following issues in depth: Identity development and gender socialization Sexualities and sexual orientations Destructive behaviors (judicial offenses, alcohol abuse, and violence) Health and wellness College men of color College men and sports This vital resource will help educators and administrators address the alarming trends and issues that arise from identity-related challenges among boys and college men.

This book includes some of the most influential research and theory on all aspects of collegiate masculinity—from sports to spirituality, hazing to hook-ups, and alcohol to assault. Always sensitive to how different groups of men experience college life, Harper and Harris's book will surely become the touchstone text for those who work with or study college men."—Michael Kimmel, author of Manhood in America and professor of sociology, Stony Brook University "Essential reading for all who care about gender equity, this book advances the conversation about men in college at the critical nexus of identity development, culture, and relationship, enabling faculty and student affairs administrators to build more thoughtful and challenging educational environments for men from diverse populations."—Susan Marine, Women's Center director and assistant dean for student life, Harvard University "This book offers educators and administrators much-needed guidance for understanding and effectively meeting the developmental, academic, and social needs of undergraduate men."—Chauncey Smith, undergraduate student leader, Morehouse College
