Journal of Student Affairs

Journal of Student Affairs Logo

The Journal of Student Affairs is an annual peer-reviewed journal that explores contemporary issues and current trends in the field of higher education with a particular focus on topics of interest to student affairs professionals. As a student-run publication, we aim to highlight research and scholarship of graduate students that further develop best practices within higher education.

Our Values

The Journal of Student Affairs is committed to showcasing our values in every publication.

Diversity in Knowledge and Practice

It is critical for higher education and student affairs professionals to research and understand the needs of different student subpopulations to provide the best support to their students.

Learning and Development

Our publication helps readers advance their professional development and learn about evolving practices. Also, graduate students that participate in our editing cycles are able to learn a wealth of knowledge about how academic journals are run.


We aim to give a publishing opportunity to students who typically are not able to be published in academic journals due to educational requirements or lack of research experience.


As we move into the twenty-first century and technology is more ingrained in the operations of higher education, professionals must be creative and innovative in their approaches to student support. The Journal of Student Affairs is an outlet for practitioners to share techniques, programs, and ideas that they have used to enhance the college student experience.
