Affiliate Faculty for Student Affairs Praxis and Professional Development

Dr. Heather Shea serves as both the director of Women*s Student Services in the Division of Student Affairs and Services and as Affiliate Faculty for Student Affairs Praxis and Professional Development in the Department of Educational Administration. In her dual role, she works most closely with the Student Affairs Administration Master’s degree program. Her professional work focuses on the liminal space between student affairs theory and professional practice, and engaging both full-time student affairs educators and master’s students in conversations about reflective praxis. Her research pays close attention to how former students, upon reflection years after co-curricular collegiate experiences, reflect upon and make meaning of these experiences.
