ASSESSMENT IN STUDENT AFFAIRS
This course provides students with an overview of the assessment and evaluation processes that allow Student Affairs professionals to develop assessment approaches that gather, analyze, and interpret information to improve institutional, departmental, and divisional effectiveness. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches to assessment will be examined with an emphasis on pragmatic application.
LEGAL ISSUES IN HIGHER EDUCATION
The primary goal of this course is to provide students with a basic understanding of the American legal system so that they can identify the history and sources of law, read and interpret laws and relevant cases, understand how the court systems work, and understanding of personal and institutional liability. Emphasis will be placed on issues and laws likely to be encountered by Higher Education practitioners.
DIVERSITY AND EQUITY IN HIGHER EDUCATION
This course emphasizes personal awareness, knowledge, and skills necessary for ongoing development of a personal intercultural framework for student affairs practice. Theories related to domestic and international dimensions of diversity, interactional diversity and the dynamics of power, privilege and oppression will be explored in university contexts. This course will examine challenges and opportunities for creating inclusive and affirming campus communities.
