Mimi Benjamin, associate professor in the Student Affairs in Higher Education Department, along with Michelle Boettcher (Clemson University) and Dena Kniess (University of West Georgia), co-authored “From Collaborative to Collegial Communities: Transitioning from Student Affairs Practitioner to Faculty,” published in the Georgia Journal of College Student Affairs. 

Their qualitative study explored former student affairs professionals who transitioned to faculty roles and how their experiences of community changed from one focused on collaboration in student affairs to a work culture as faculty that was focused on collegiality.  

The Georgia Journal of College Student Affairs is an open, double-blind, peer reviewed journal published twice per year by the Georgia College Personnel Association. The journal seeks to provide a medium for student affairs professionals and faculty to share their research and practices of working in higher education.
