Listen Very Loud:
Paying Attention in the Student Affairs Profession

by Randy L. Mitchell

Stories, fables, allegories, and legends have traditionally been the ways in which a community preserves its heritage — its collective memory. They are also the ways in which any community passes along and rejuvenates the ideals and values of its culture. As a consummate teller of tales, Randy Mitchell has become a balladeer of his profession by sharing and re-conceptualizing the ideals and traditions inherent in the field of student affairs.

Listening is at the heart of Randy’s message: listening to the stories of students, colleagues, and oneself.

Randy writes:

The pieces in this book are my way of examining and transforming the humanity of the student affairs profession. … I’m also interested in some of the qualities of our profession that seem to be missing from the literature. I believe we need new perspectives on responsibility, success, motivation, balance, grief, sense, grace (harmony, acceptance, goodwill), and joy as these concepts relate to student affairs.

Listen Very Loud is a collection of essays — of stories — each posing a question, each offering reflections for your personal consideration. They are a tool for renewing the greatest strengths of the student affairs profession and the people who work within it.
