Feedback on current issues & trends in the US

Posted by Tari Hunter on May 2, 2017 2:22 am

Hello Colleagues,
 
I am currently working on a project focused on Students’ Unions: current issues and trends in the US.  The information will be used to develop a collection of essays, which examine current issues and trends within Student Unions. Our goal is not to be an academic reference book, but it does need to be referenced appropriately and supported by evidence.
 
Below you will find a short list of topics, well maybe not short. Please take a moment to review them. Let me know if you think the list is comprehensive and share any trends that may be missing that you think are valuable.
