The use of critical and post-structural theories, such as critical race theory, intersectionality, and queer theory, to explore student development is relatively new. Most current research looks beyond the individual to how systems of oppression, such as racism, ableism, and heterosexism mediate student development and the nature of student development theory.
This volume offers some of the most contemporary thinking about student development by:

  • reviewing recent critical post-structural scholarship;
  • offering new possibilities for using theoretical lenses; and
  • translating these theories into student affairs practice.
This is the 154th 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.
