Community college Student Affairs and services units are foundation to students’ academic goals and success. As such, these professionals are often central to the critical initiatives and trends developing throughout two-year institutions to support the overarching goals of student success. For the most part, these initiatives originated during Barack Obama’s presidency with increased attention paid to community colleges led by Dr. Jill Biden. The future of community colleges and their initiatives is questionable in the era of the Trump presidency. This article explores how Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, and the broader Trump administration may influence two-year institutions and their Student Affairs professionals will need to operate in response to their policies and philosophy of education.
