      THE SCOTT GOODNIGHT SCHOLARSHIP
      Dean Goodnight, Grand President of Phi Eta Sigma from 1933 until 1939,
      was Dean of Men at the University of Wisconsin


      NASPA (National Association of Student Personnel Administrators) History
      In December 1918 Robert Rienow, the dean of men at the University of Iowa, wrote a letter to Thomas Arkle Clark, dean of men at the University of Illinois, suggesting a meeting that is now recognized as the founding of the NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education. The meeting was held at the University of Wisconsin in January 1919, with six men present. In attendance were three deans of men and three professors having campus interests of this type but no title.

      In reporting on the first meeting, Professor Louis A. Strauss of the University of Michigan referred to it as the Conference of Deans and Advisers of Men. This label became popular and was used until 1929 when it was modified as the National Association of Deans and Advisers of Men (NADAM). The title was apt because the dean of men's title was not widespread on the American college campus at that time. Thomas Arkle Clark was the first person to claim the title in 1909, although he assumed the responsibilities in 1901.

      Scott Goodnight, dean of men at the University of Wisconsin, served as host for this historic first meeting. Retroactively, he is referred to as the first president of NADAM. Actually, he was selected as chairman during the meeting, a kind of incidental formality not seen at the time as having any significance. The success of this meeting, as participants agreed, suggested that another should be held, with invitations extended to anyone who might be interested. It is clear that the second meeting was pivotal to the life of the organization. Held on the University of Illinois campus with an attendance of nine, it was decided that future meetings should occur annually on the campus of one of the members. A committee of three was named to handle arrangements. Short papers for discussion were introduced as a supplement to the informal discussions; the latter being seen by participants as the primary value in meeting.

      Building at University of Wisconsin was named after him.
