Mistaken Goal: Where Higher Education & Technology Meet


"...technology is not something that happens to us. It is something we create. We must not confuse a tool with a goal. We must, therefore, be sure that technology serves the fundamental purposes of higher education." Stanley N. Katz in "In Information Technology, Don't Mistake a Tool for a Goal"

Abstract
Definitions and examples of higher education and student affairs management information systems (MIS) are provided, including operational systems and strategic planning. A rationale for the need to improve student affairs MIS is given, emphasizing MIS contributions to decision making and resource allocation and their potential to contribute to student development. The two essentials of all successful MIS are provided. Next, five guidelines to improve student affairs MIS are presented, including examples of how to implement these guidelines in student affairs divisions. Last is a list of the pitfalls of unsuccessful higher education MIS.
