Abstract/Description: After World War II, globalization impacted both, higher education and student affairs. As a result, both increased efforts to internationalize campuses, academics, and student services. The purpose of this research is to examine how student affairs responded to the internationalization in higher education during 1951 to 1996 in the United States (US). Documents and oral histories provided a narrative of how professionals, institutions, and professional associations, specifically the major student affairs associations, ACPA: College Student Educators International; NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education; and the National Association of Women Educators (NAWE), evolved over this 45 year time period. This research highlights the importance of concurrent and grassroots movements, professional experience, and institutional and associational influence that led to a "tipping point" in 1995 and 1996. Each of these main themes contributes to the larger story of the internationalization in student affairs in the US. Post 1996 student affairs has continued to internationalize as literature and collaborative relationships among professional associations worldwide highlight differences and similarities of student affairs and services across the globe. This research provides a horizontal history for the internationalization in student affairs in the US until 1996; however, it highlights a need for further research in the history of student affairs, student affairs and services around the world, and the current state of internationalization of student affairs and services.
