Student Affairs

About Us

StudentAffairs.com is the most comprehensive Internet resource available for college student affairs professionals.

Our History

StudentAffairs.com was conceived by college administrators Stuart Brown and Andrew Hedges at the 1997 ACPA/NASPA combined conference in Chicago. The goal was to create a multi-platform resource for student affairs professionals just as the Internet age began to stake a foothold in higher education and beyond. The initial offerings included a rudimentary job search area, listings of web-related resources, and a catalog of operating Listservs. After a few years, Andrew left StudentAffairs.com to pursue other interests. However, the site continued to grow and expand, adding a job site with hundreds of position listings, a comprehensive catalogue of webinars, and, most recently, an online Exhibit Hall.

Today, StudentAffairs.com is recognized as a leader in student affairs and is one of the most accessed destinations by college and university student personnel administrators.

Currently, the website features:

  • Position listings – We list thousands of student affairs job openings each year covering every functional area of the field.
  • Free resume listing database – Student affairs professionals can post their resume online; member institutions can search for candidates as part of their subscription to the site.
  • Exhibit Hall – The only online exhibit hall for student affairs professionals listing performers, service providers, promotional products, and more that cater to student affairs professionals.
  • Website resources – We have catalogued dozens of helpful and informative websites within our pages.
  • Webinars – StudentAffairs.com is a leader in the field in offering dozens of online, professional development programs each year.
  • Virtual Case Study Competition – One of the oldest case study competitions for graduate students that annually attractions hundreds of Master’s level students.
