The Student Affairs Columns of Learning and Development outlines learning outcomes for students who participate in Student Affairs programs, events and services. The six learning outcomes are: interpersonal development, civic engagement, practical competence, intrapersonal development, knowledge integration and critical thinking. Graduate students will assist profesional staff in measuring these outcomes through assessment.

In partnership with the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis (ELPA) in the College of Education, the Division of Student Affairs is launching a new professional development program to give graduate students hands-on assessment experience.

The Graduate Student Assessment Team offers semester and year-long opportunities for higher education graduate students to assist departments with assessment projects and initiatives while building NASPA/ACPA assessment competencies.

In addition, Student Affairs is offering an internship for one student to work for and study under the Student Affairs assessment and planning coordinator, and to provide leadership for the Graduate Student Assessment Team volunteers.

Details about both positions are listed below.
