Initiatives



The Division of Student Affairs developes collaborative programs and initiatives that support and promote student learning, health and wellness, leadership development, and community engagement. Some of these include:

Assessment efforts in the Division of Student Affairs focus primarily on student learning. In addition to ensuring that we are meeting the needs of students, our efforts are driven by our curiosity to know in what ways our programs and services help students to learn more about themselves and others, apply that learning, and integrate it into their lives. Assessment allows us to live into our Jesuit ideal of the magis, which orientates us to continually strive to be more.

These web pages were created to help all members of the division – from assessment beginners to those with advanced training and experience – gain the necessary skills to conduct assessment and use the results to tell the story of their work. Below, you'll find resources to get started on assessment, including templates, a user-friendly assessment cycle, workshop materials, and a link to Campus Labs, our assessment vendor. The division also has an assessment working group which consults with departments on assessment activities.

Eagle Path is a Student Affairs division-wide initiative helps undergraduate work-study students articulate their career aspirations. We recognize eight essential professional competencies expected of new college graduates. As we work with students discerning their paths, we help them reflect upon, recognize, develop, and articulate how these competencies connect to their individual career interests and goals.

Program Goals

 

Guide student employees through the process of discerning their interests, skills, and values and how those relate to potential careers.

Identify opportunities to help students reflect, recognize, develop, and articulate the competencies they are gaining.

Help students identify which competencies they are developing and create a plan to further develop the competencies that are highly valued by employers.

Career competencies: the skills employers seek most

Cross Currents Seminars is a collaboration between Student Affairs and Academic Affairs and are one-credit courses that provide upper-level undergraduate students with an opportunity to explore a topic being presented in one of their courses with greater depth. Cross Current Seminars not only facilitate an in-depth exploration of a given topic, but assist students in making connections between academic material and their personal experiences, values, and actions.
