  5. 5. Some Governance Considerations Strengths Concerns Other Student Affairs Fit with broader departmental mission; student-led programs; larger scale; access to areas like Residence Life Fails to become integrated at institution’s core (faculty); lack of curricular change; 
 co-curricular devaluation Many campuses have started from this vantage point
  6. 6. Some Governance Considerations Strengths Concerns Other Academic Affairs Build in access to and engagement of faculty; with care, may be able to build in research and scholarship Service can be episodic if only tied to courses; must put attention on student leadership; may miss opportunity for campus developmental model Having program under Academic Affairs does not guarantee curricular change
  7. 7. Some Governance Considerations Strengths Concerns Other Integrated Center May leverage resources & change; curricular and 
 co-curricular integration; high potential for campus-wide institutionalization Coordination and decision- making involves more time & people; top down vs. bottom up drivers Many established campuses seem to be moving here, but change is still hard
