October is Careers in Student Affairs Month — an opportunity for those in the student affairs and services field to share opportunities and career options that exist in campus life and higher education administration with students and friends who may be interested in meaningful and rewarding work supporting students to achieve their personal and academic goals.
The Supporting Student Success research team is comprised of graduate students enrolled in the Higher Education program at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. In previous posts, many of these students have shared how the use findings from the research study in their professional practice. Over the next couple of posts, we highlight current students in the Higher Education program who will share their perspectives on graduate study in relationship to enriching their work in student affairs and services.
Over the last couple of years, faculty in the Higher Education program have heard repeatedly about the need for a graduate program focused on Student Development and Student Services within the Canadian context. Responding to this demand, the Higher Education faculty is excited to announce the inaugural intake of students to the Master’s of Education in Higher Education degree with a field of study in Student Development and Student Services. Come and learn more about the program and how graduate study can enhance your professional practice at our upcoming open house on October 21 at 5:00 in OISE 5-210.
