This study explores student affairs capitalism as the alteration of professional practice towards the financial interests of institutions. Student affairs capitalism has the potential to create dynamics in which the interests of students become secondary to the institution's economic needs. This study examined this phenomenon from the perspectives of early-career student affairs professionals with particular focus on possible professional tensions. Findings have implications for student services, student affairs preparation programs, and student affairs professional associations.
