Rodriguez, Associate Vice Provost and Dean of Student Affairs, Virginia Commonwealth University Many student affairs professionals probably have considered at several points in their careers that graduate school training did not prepare them for incidents that challenged their established ethical perspectives. Florence A. Hamrick and Mimi Benjamin, the editors of Maybe I Should . . . Case Studies on Ethics for Student Affairs Professionals, examined the processes by which practitioners could utilize reflection and reassessment in confronting and solving ethical quandaries likely to occur early in a professional’s career. As a comprehensive guide and teaching tool, this ambitious text provides more than 70 different and difficult scenarios, based on real-life experiences, for instructional faculty who design and students who matriculate in student affairs programs. Despite some shortcomings, ultimately, the book succeeds in its main goal of providing a straightforward and useful academic product. The primary editors, along with the numerous collegial authors, reflect the depth of experiences needed to publish a textbook. Hamrick served as the editor of the Journal of College Student Development, authored or coauthored numerous books chapters, articles, conference presentations, and addresses, received noteworthy ACPA
