“What Drove Them To Leave? Understanding Professional Staff Departure” Webinar Recording (February 6, 2024)

The field of student affairs has seen an exodus of staff members over the past few years. Employee attrition, however, is not a new problem in student affairs. Join Dr. Gudrun Nyunt, Assistant of Professor of Higher Education at Northern Illinois University, as she shares findings of her grounded theory study that aimed to understand why student affairs professionals leave the field. Dr. Nyunt will engage participants in reflections and discussions on how the departure model she and her co-authors created can help us identify ways to disrupt student affairs departure and create a more welcoming and inclusive work environment for a diverse group of professionals.
