Upcoming Structured Conversations

Career Trajectories in Student Affairs Assessment

October 10, 2017 @ 12pm- 1pm EDT

In celebration of "Careers in Student Affairs Month," this month's Structured Conversation features a discussion among Panel Members Jen Meyers-Pickard, Stan Dura, and Maggie Konich as they reflect on their individual journeys and experiences over the course of their Careers in Student Affairs. 
As a result of participating in this structured conversation, participants will be able to:
  • Identify points of entry into Student Affairs work and whether or not assessment is a formal or informal part of the role.
  • Explain how Student Affairs Assessment work is assumed in various roles over time.
  • Recognize various options for Student Affairs Professionals over the course of one's career trajectory given current trends in Higher Education and Student Affairs.
