Reflections From a Past Participant in the SLPKC Graduate Mentoring Program
If you’d ask any senior student affairs professional in our field today about one of the most important building blocks of a new professional that they did not get early in their careers; one of the most popular answers would most likely be mentoring. Mentoring is not something that you organically benefit from or learn about in your higher education graduate program but rather a connection that comes from a natural relationship or a fostered opportunity. For me, it is an opportunity much like why I chose to make higher education and student affairs my career path- to be able to make an impact on my community and those around me.

No matter your position, title, or area of expertise, as a student affairs professional there are a myriad of ways you can – and should – engage in public policy conversations for the benefit of you, your students, and your institution. Won’t you join #SAadvocates around the country on #NSADA19 to share your expertise and insight with policymakers?
