Spring is here; graduate students are seeking their first position, and new professionals are looking for a change. As a soon to be graduate myself, the impending process is both exciting and terrifying. My job search is further complicated by being in a dual higher education career relationship.
This guide highlights sessions, programs, and events of interest to student affairs professionals at small colleges and universities during the 2018 NASPA Annual Conference.
I knew I wanted to stay in student affairs, I just wasn’t sure where I fit in. It wasn’t until a mentor of mine posed these five questions to me that I was able to focus in on what I wanted and was able to make clearer career choices.
Who belongs and who doesn’t? These two questions I have been asking myself in a variety of professional and personal contexts since my first year in graduate school. Most recently, while serving as the primary advisor of a recognized fraternity on campus.
In the first installment of the Engage! series, Teri Lyn Hinds, NASPA's Director of Policy Research and Advocacy, broadly outlined four levels in which student affairs professionals might advocate on campus: institutionally, as faculty and staff, supporting students and civic engagement, and personally. In the second installment, NASPA Policy Analyst Diana Ali took a deeper dive into these forms of advocacy concerning undocumented individuals. In this installment of the Engage! series, Teri will address the four types of advocacy student affairs professionals might pursue to promote rights for trans individuals on their campus and in their community. NASPA’s Policy and Advocacy team regularly tracks challenges to trans individuals’ rights and protection under both the Student Safety and Wellness and Inclusive Opportunities tenets of the NASPA Public Policy Agenda.
