Pre-Institute Session: The Student Affairs Career Pipeline: New, Mid-level, and Seasoned Professionals
Saturday, June 23rd • 03.00 PM – 04.30 PM
Make the most of your time in Tacoma by taking advantage of this optional (and complimentary!) educational session.
The student affairs profession has assumptions, expectations, and traditions for how one progresses through the career pipeline. From graduate school to the hiring of SSAOs, we seem to have a paradigm for how that pathway unfolds. How well does this model, if it does exist, serve us? How prepared are those in the pipeline to advance to senior levels in the profession? Does this lens, relative to a prescribed professional pathway, color the way we hire across all aspects of our division? There’s growing sentiment that we need to revamp this construct given the unrelenting demands of our work and the need for succession planning across our divisions. We will challenge some of our profession’s sacred cows and with attendees identify initiatives for moving forward especially related to mid and senior level positions.
Presented by Ellen Heffernan, president, Spelman & Johnson and Mike Segawa, interim dean of students, University of Nevada, Reno.
Although complimentary, advance registration is required for this session.
