Student Affairs Graduate Assistant Application 2018-2019
Student Affairs Graduate Assistantship Application
Graduate assistantships offer a year of opportunities to combine the theories and principles of leadership you learn through your academic coursework with supervised experience in student affairs. Assistantships are designed to provide you with direct experience and exposure to both the administrative and developmental functions of student affairs units. In doing so, graduate assistantships provide a unique window of opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills, dispositions, and values that are fundamental to the student affairs profession. They are also essential to supporting undergraduate college students’ development during a time in their lives that is characterized by self-exploration, identity development, and self-authorship.
Graduate Assistants work with the following facilities, organizations, and programmatic units (click here to review available job descriptions):
- Civic Engagement Initiatives
- Cross-Cultural Center
- Greek Life
The application process for graduate assistantships is coordinated in tandem with the application process for admission to the Masters in Leadership Development program. You must apply for a graduate assistantship by April 18, 2018. Please know that Graduate assistantships require enrollment as a graduate student; assistantships are not available to undergraduates in a 4+1 program until they've completed their undergraduate degree.
