The Learning Assistance Center is a program of the Counseling Center and
we are faculty specialists. Faculty specialists here often do not have
doctorates while instructional faculty must have doctorates. Although one
may graduate from a doctoral program which espouses a
research/practitioner integration, that is easier said than done. Of
course, there are those who can function in both arenas equally well, but
I don't think that is common. I would argue for remaining outside of
academic affairs to ensure the diversity in approach/perspective. This
means extra efforts at collaboration and bridging the gap. It's possible
and worth the effort.
