Campus Chasm Between Academic Affairs & Student Services?

Gren Dungy, executive director of NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, introduces this essay with competing quotations from Academically Adrift, whose authors were plenary speakers at SCUP-46 last July.

 

"The VP for academic affairs comments 'Look at this. All that crap you have been talking about on student engagement? Here it says that not only does it not contribute positively to learning, it degrades learning!'

 

The VP for student affairs says, 'Yes, and did you notice that it’s the faculty whose low expectations and lack of rigor by not assigning enough reading and writing is the real problem? That’s why our students are not learning as much as they should!'"

 

What would a SCUPer say?
