Welcome to the Student Career Development KC, where our goal is to support the growing need to connect the student affairs profession and practices with the career development outcomes of undergraduate students. Join us in playing a role in ensuring that student affairs educators, in all functional areas, and at all levels, are intentionally helping their students connect co-curricular experiences with career exploration and planning to lead meaningful personal and professional lives.
One of the most important aspects of being in student affairs is being in a position to pave the way for upcoming professionals and students. In doing this, you practice being a leader and or mentor in a person’s life.
Professional awards are more than an opportunity to recognize excellence in our field. Award nominations can be a powerful act of showing gratitude for the colleagues who influence our work and the programs we invest our so much of our energy. By writing a nomination, we give ourselves time to pause and show appreciation. Not only can we help shine a light on the people and programs in our lives, but we, too, benefit from taking the time to practice gratitude.

With the emphasis placed on internships as a high impact practice and practical work experience that future employers look for on resumes, community service work-study participation can serve as a way for students to access relevant nonprofit experience, needed funding, and embed these students within new peer, campus, and community networks. Whether community service work-study is a program that your institution is maximizing or under-utilizing, now is the time to see the potential in this resource and map out how you can best leverage it for deeper civic action in 2019-2020.
