This much-needed case study book provides higher education and student affairs graduate students with the tools to enhance their learning of student development theory and to apply these ideas to practice. Each chapter offers a summary of foundational theory—covering traditional and new student development models—in addition to multiple case studies that help readers focus on practice for social justice and inclusion.

The case studies for each chapter are drawn from a range of institutional types and diverse student populations, offering an opportunity to explore the intersections of various developmental processes and to foster social justice and inclusion in higher education contexts. End-of-case guiding questions offer opportunity for further discussion and critical reflection. An essential text for every student development course, Case Studies for Student Development Theory addresses student success in higher education while also addressing how students’ social identities intersect with college campus environments.
