Strategic Student Affairs Technology planning

The Division of Student Affairs at NC State University engage in strategic student affairs technology planning. There site includes downloadable technology planning checklists, technology position responsibility documents, technology planning overview and an overview of the student affairs division technology plan.

The folks at NC State might not be the first student affairs administrators to intentionally write up technology documents, but they sure are doing a great job of sharing their thoughts, plans, and documents.

I had the pleasure of attending “Deliberate Technology Planning in Student Affairs: Taming the Tech Tiger” at the NASPA/ACPA Joint Meeting. Leslie Dare et al. are placing technology closer to the center for folks in student affairs.

I hope that someday student affairs technology becomes a functional area in the field… I predict that technology will become one of the functional areas in the CAS Professional Standards for Higher Education text.
