A research paper was recently published that explores the application of CAS standards in law student affairs.
The recently published research paper “Distance between Silos: Familiarity with CAS Standards among Law Student Affairs Professionals” discusses the application of CAS standards in law student affairs.
J. Trent Kennedy, a Senior Institutional Research Analyst at the Georgetown University Law Center, conducted the study and documented the findings in an article that was published in the College Student Affairs Journal. Kennedy is a member of the Southern Association for College Student Affairs (SACSA), an organizational member of the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS).
Kennedy's research paper investigates how CAS standards may expand upon the functional area of student affairs in law education programs.
“The CAS Standards are commonly used in undergraduate-facing student affairs practice but rarely discussed in legal education. This study explores law student affairs professionals' awareness and use of the CAS Standards, finding a significant divergence from the rest of the field and suggesting that (in the current era of increased scrutiny) law student affairs may be a functional area ripe for greater engagement with these strong assessment and benchmarking tools.”
