A commonly held perspective in student affairs and services is that we educate the whole student. The notion of the “whole student” has its history in some of the seminal documents from the field. The Student Personnel Point of View discussed the importance of developing a student as a whole person as opposed to training his or her intellect alone.

Recently, a group of colleagues came together to discuss what we mean by “educating the whole student.” Below is a link to a PDF copy of the article published in ACPA’s Developments
