The functions of a Student Conduct Administrator (SCA) have existed on college campuses since the first institutions of higher education were established. Colleges and universities now employ specialized staff members to fulfill this role. The fundamentals of the position have changed only minimally over the years, but these responsibilities continue to become more complex. The question to be answered is whether or not the practice of student conduct administration constitutes a profession. If student conduct administration qualifies as a profession, SCAs hold a specific professional identity. This project provides the results of a national survey of SCAs who described how they stay up-to-date on current trends and topics within the field of student conduct, identify necessary skills to perform the position above and beyond those skill levels of the general public, and describe any specialized training SCAs need to function in the position. This dissertation used a combined method of quantitative and qualitative methodology. A survey instrument was created and distributed to all members of the Association for Student Conduct Administration. Results were tabulated using SPSS v. 22, including correlation, ANOVA, and Multiple Linear Regression. The results indicated statistical significance for each of the research areas of the study.
