The Author


Praise for The Business of Student Affairs

“The Business of Student Affairs is a long-overdue primer on the many current challenges involved in leading and working within higher education, specifically student affairs and especially from a finance, technology, and planning lens. No doubt it will be required reading for all those preparing and currently working in student affairs. It is an instant classic!” —Patricia A. Whitely, Senior Vice President for Student Affairs, University of Miami

“The Business of Student Affairs has been long overlooked at both the graduate preparation and professional development levels. Drawing upon a remarkable career, Moneta has woven together a model primer for student affairs professionals at all levels of service.” —Danny Pugh, Vice President for Student Affairs, Texas A&M University

“Moneta has wonderfully articulated why mastering business practices helps practitioners achieve more significant impact on behalf of students. While student affairs professionals should first read this text in total, the individual chapters are also invaluable tools to revisit as leadership challenges and opportunities arise.” —Erin Hoffmann Harding, Vice President for Student Affairs (2012–2021), University of Notre Dame

“Clear, incisive, and powerfully useful. Higher education classes for emerging student affairs professionals should use this t ext as a primary  resource.” —Michael L. Jackson, Vice President Emeritus, University of Southern California
