2015-16 Staff Professional Involvement Report

We are deeply grateful for the support of the Student Affairs Executive Team, the insight provided by the Student Affairs Professional Development Committee, and especially Aaron Baker, Ali Martin Scoufield, Johänna Smith, Justin Lonis, Matthew Knickman, Owen McConnell, and William Oldham for their contributions in analyzing the de-identified results.

We are also thankful to staff for their commitment to the project and their belief that great things would come from this endeavor.

About the Report

In 2016, the university was preparing for re-accreditation which provided an opportunity to highlight and celebrate the commitment, energy and drive of the Student Affairs staff while simultaneously gathering information to help inform professional development planning.

In May 2016, staff in the division were given a form to complete regarding their educational background, professional development activities, and service experiences for the year. Supervisors were asked to review the forms by the end of the month and were given the option to include the information in staff annual reviews.

In summer 2017, the report was shared with all CWRU Student Affairs staff and several campus partners. It provides a tremendous amount of professional development resources for those who are currently pursuing a career in the student affairs field and for those who might wish to do so.

We are pleased to share this report with you now, and hope you will share your feedback with us.

Our next steps include following up on the recommendations in the report and revising the form. It is our intention to gather this information every two years going forward, starting in Spring 2018. We will provide the updated form to staff as soon as it is finalized.
