Released February 2020 at the Association for Student Contact Administrators National Conference in Washington, D.C., the text is an update of the 2008 first edition.

Waryold and Lancaster AwardIn addition to the book release and presentations with the chapter authors, Lancaster received special recognition at the conference “for his commitment to the Association for Student Conduct Administration, his service to the organization and the scholarship that has advanced knowledge of the profession.” Lancaster will retire at the end of the 2019-2020 academic year. 

Stylus Publishing notes that “since the publication of the first edition of Student Conduct Practice in 2008, the landscape of student conduct has matured and shifted dramatically.” 

The new edition expands and “maintains the objectives of the first--to constitute a compendium of current best practices in the administration of student conduct, to summarize the latest thinking on key issues facing practitioners today, and to provide an overview of the role and status of conduct administrators within their institutions.

The text was written “in close collaboration with the leadership of the Association for Student Conduct Administration (ASCA), [and] the editors identified the most pressing conduct issues on our campuses and practitioners and faculty who offer related expertise and necessary diversity of voices.”
