From the Inside Flap

Working with student groups?such as sororities, fraternities, special interest, sports, recognition, and student government?can be extremely rewarding, as well as challenging. This guide, designed for both seasoned and first time advisers, provides the skills and knowledge base necessary to develop an understanding of the various kinds of student groups and how they function. Readers will learn how to meet the challenges of representing both the needs of the institution and the needs of groups.The book clarifies the various roles of the adviser, including teacher, leader, follower, supervisor, and mentor. It reviews mediation and problem solving, discusses communication and learning styles, shows how to build connections with students, understand group development, identify the boundaries between advising and friAndship, and maintain relationships with students from every walk of life. Strategies for motivating student leaders, providing academic and career assistance, and tackling budgetary and legal issues are included as well. Reading lists, suggested activities, and case studies are woven throughout the book and offer practical, day-to-day advice that make the advisory role easier and more rewarding.

Format: Paperback
If you have time only to read one book, or if you need to have a resource on advising student groups, this is the book to use. Well written, comprehensive and timely this should go on the required reading list for student affairs professionals and student group advisors. Dunkel and Schuh combine material on individuals, groups, institutions, finance, legal issues and more all into a very usable resource.
