The value of
campus partnerships
DIANE REYNOLDS, CASP
NACAS PRESIDENT

hether they recognize it or not, students come to campus with a set of preferences.
They all have their favorite brands, products and dining establishments. We as auxiliary
professionals want to ensure that students have the best possible experience while they're
away from home, and part of that means providing them with access to the familiarities that are a
comfort to them. Whether that looks like products from Coke, Pepsi, Chick-fil-A, specific booksellers
or snack brands at a convenience store, we rely on our campus partners to help us deliver what
students prefer and want.
Imagine what your campus would look like without any of the auxiliary partnerships you have
today. That might mean no dining establishments, no booksellers, no retail shops - maybe even no
housing. Without these conveniences, students would have to spend less time focusing on academics
and more time worrying about what they're going to eat for dinner. The lack of partnerships and the
services, products and expertise they provide to our community would result in a campus of chaos.
But campus partnerships aren't only comprised of business vendors. We as auxiliary units need
to create and foster good relationships with student organizations and academic departments,
too. Your products and services directly impact these groups; doesn't it make sense to hear their
ideas and collaborate together? For many campuses too, the lines are often blurred between the
university and the town or city it's located in, making partnerships with local municipalities equally
as important to the success of your initiatives.
As auxiliary units, we survive and sustain because of our campus partners. They are the experts
in their fields. It's our mission to support the student life experience, and our partners help us create opportunities that enhance that mission.
This issue of College Services magazine highlights campus partnerships and how they enrich the
student experience at colleges and universities. As you read through the issue, I hope you take
some time to reflect on your own campus partnerships and the impact they have on student life
at your institution.
I look forward to seeing many of you at the NACAS regional conferences this summer! Wishing
you a great end to the spring semester.

Sincerely,
Diane Reynolds
