The Disability Knowledge Community is NASPA’s member driven resource for information about disability issues in higher education and student affairs. The Knowledge Community works to combine knowledge generated by its members with outside resources. As a source of information and advocacy for disability issues, the Disability Knowledge Community is able to provide professionals and institutions with the resources needed to meet these unique needs.

I’m a new student affairs professional who was so eager to enter this field that I hoped to attend graduate school for a student affairs program starting during my sophomore year at Appalachian State University. Several student affairs professionals (Shout out to my NUFP Mentors!) encouraged and mentored me to end up in the Student Affairs and Higher Education program at Missouri State University. They provided me with many professional development opportunities and I enthusiastically soaked it all up. They coached me through the graduate school application process and provided me with a plethora of advice about the field. I am so grateful for their help in my development into the professional, and person, I am today.
To be honest, I was hesitant about employment at a community college. At the time, I did not feel my skill-set was one that could be best utilized in this setting as I had never worked with non-traditional student populations. For instance, my interactions with veteran students were limited. I encountered older students who were attending college part-time due to their role as caregivers to their parents or raising children. Further, I definitely had not served many students who are working full-time jobs at 40 hours (or plus) a week. Nevertheless, I felt I was up for this new experience! I applied for two positions at Ivy Tech Indianapolis. In hindsight, I thank my mentor for her encouragement to try something new professional, as working within the community college system has been and continues to be very rewarding.
