Academic affairs and student affairs collaborations are increasingly important on college campuses. However, much of the research on these partnerships is not based on student affairs professionals. The purpose of this research study is to analyze the perception of skills and institutional culture on these collaborations on college campuses. Through a psychometric survey instrument, participants were asked their perception of the skills needed in collaborations and were analyzed based on subspecialty of student affairs. Second, participants were asked about institutional culture toward collaborating. Findings found no differences between skills needed based on area where a student affairs professional works. However, a significant finding emerged when assessing cultural aspects on collaborations on campuses. Specifically, how many years a person works in higher education had a positive influence on perceptions of culture, while years in current position had a negative influence.
