FREE VIRTUAL Careers in Student Affairs Institute on Saturday, October 17, 2020 9:00am-3:00pm MST

Careers in Student Affairs Virtual Conference

 

 

Program

  • The Careers in Student Affairs Institute is a free, virtual conference on Saturday, October 17th, from 9:00am-3:00pm MST. This event is geared toward undergraduate and graduate students interested in student affairs and new professionals in the field. The goal of the Institute is to provide professional development opportunities relevant to each participant level to enhance the work we do with students and learn more about ethical leadership in student affairs and the professional pathways within student affairs.

    Sponsored by the University of Colorado Colorado Springs' College of Education and the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program, the Institute seeks to provide educational sessions from student affairs educators throughout the state to strengthen state-wide collaboration around student support and education as well as encourage promising professionals to consider the field.

    In the virtual environment, the Institute strives to be engaging and provide networking opportunities despite challenges we currently face around physical distancing. We will offer an in-person Careers in Student Affairs Institute in Fall 2021 if we are able.
