EAGLE PATH: A guided approach to supervision to help undergraduate students reflect upon, recognize, develop, and articulate their career aspirations.


  • 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.



  1. Set-up your first spring meeting
    Whether you have students newly hired for the Spring Semeseter or returning back, the plan should be consistent with the fall semester.

  2. Schedule a performance evaluation
    Evaluate your students performance at the end of the year using the same rubric. Follow the review with a discussion about potential career plans for the future, whether in the department or elsewhere.

  3. Host an appreciation event
    While optional, it is recommended to have an end of year employee appreciation event.

Student Evaluations please complete an end of year evaluation for each student participating in Eagle Path. Access the online evaluation form>


Stay tuned for new training sessions this summer.



The Division of Student Affairs recognizes eight essential professional competencies expected of new college graduates. As we work with students who are discerning their paths, we are committed to helping them reflect upon, recognize, develop, and articulate how these competencies connect to their individual career interests and goals.

Below are resources to help guide this process.
