About the Authors
As the functions that fall under the umbrella of student affairs expand, the importance of meeting students where they are becomes ever more vital—and where they are is online. Waite and Wheeler offer an important, research-based roadmap for both the tech resistant and the tech adept student affairs professionals who wish to harness the power of the platforms that are key to how our students see themselves and experience the world.

This book is an amazing primer for anyone working in higher education. I really appreciate how it gives a comprehensive look at all of the functional areas in our field and how social media uniquely factors in to each of them in a relevant and engaging way. I can see this book being required reading for both new and senior student affairs professionals alike because this full context is so important.
