Abstract

The purpose of this essay is to invite student affairs educators to reflect on the past to help shape the future of the profession. The metaphor of a public art exhibit with five reflective questions is used to inspire educators to think critically about student engagement. As the demographics of students pursuing higher education changes, we urge a recommitment to historically underserved student populations. This call to service invokes a social justice philosophy when we serve historically marginalized student groups, including immigrants, students of color, and first-generation learners. Doing so will engage students and reenergize our commitment to the profession.
