A bit about Robert H. Shaffer ...

Robert H. Shaffer was a pioneer in the field of college student personnel and student affairs. His work spanned the course of four decades (approximately 1940-1981), which can be characterized as a period of "incredible growth and social and political change in American Society." Believing that those who enter the field of student affairs must be "human development experts," not simply administrators and bureaucrats, it was no doubt his own understanding of human development that enabled him to have so great an impact on both the students he served as dean and those entering his field.
