Partnering with the Parents of Today's College Students offers student affairs professionals, as well as all faculty and college and university administrators, a complete and integrated approach to working with parents. The parents of today's students interact with college staff and faculty much more frequently and for different reasons than previous generations. Providing opportunities for parents to participate in the college experience can pay huge dividends in terms of increased student success, institutional financial support, and enhanced public relations. This NASPA publication is written by student affairs practitioners who possess a wealth of knowledge about today's parents and contains information on demographic perspectives, developmental issues, parent programming, problem solving, legal issues, best practices, and a literature review.
