Crisis, Compassion, and Resiliency in Student Affairs focuses on the personal lived experiences of student affairs professionals who frequently encounter crisis situations and disasters on college and university campuses. The book explores how to apply triage practices—doing what matters most in the moment during a crisis event—to support the holistic well-being of students and staff through both institutional crises as well as daily critical incidents.

This edited volume features wide-ranging perspectives from seasoned student affairs leaders who have encountered unthinkable tragedies and high-profile incidents including active shooters, intentional violence, citywide terrorism, natural disasters, transportation accidents, student suicide and death, campus activism, and more. They share essential steps for responding to and managing crisis events and emergencies, as well as advice for maintaining personal well-being and achieving healing when the work demands 24/7/365 dedication.
