FORT WAYNE, Ind.—Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne’s (IPFW’s) Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs George S. McClellan was recently honored at the 2012 NASPA (National Association of Student Personnel Administrators) Region IV-East Conference with the Outstanding Contribution to Higher Education Award.
According to NASPA’s website, this award “… honors individuals or organizations that have provided dedicated service, consistent advocacy, and outstanding leadership to the higher education community … The honoree will have made a meaningful and appreciable contribution to the issues and concerns affecting higher education.”
McClellan’s nominators highlighted his experience in writing for student affairs as a large area of impact on higher education. “It completely amazes me at the breadth and depth of his inquiry into the profession and how this leads to deep insights for anyone in student affairs. He has become a well-known leader in the research of gambling and its effect on college students, as well as being a co-editor on such publications as the Handbook of Student Affairs Administrators as well as co-author of the recent Budgets and Financial Management in Higher Education among other books, chapters, monographs, newsletter articles, and so much more.”
One nominator summed up McClellan’s qualifications for the award this way: “George McClellan is a great example of what all Student Affairs Professionals should aspire to be, not only for the students that they serve, but the profession that they represent.”
McClellan has been VCSA at IPFW since July 2007; prior to that he served in other Student Affairs positions at Dickinson State University, the University of Arizona, and Northwestern University.
