College Student Personnel program

The Learning Environment: Higher Education Leadership

The CSP program is grounded in our belief that people and organizations grow through an experiential process that is mutually shaped, socially constructed, and historically situated. In small cohort-based classes you will discuss, question, experiment, research, wrestle with, and debate the issues, and the roots of those issues, that face student affairs professionals. Faculty and student affairs professionals across campus partner with you in this process. And, your cohort coming from a wide range of student affairs experience, locations, and backgrounds, add another layer of learning and growing during your time in the program.

The CSP program emphasizes the ACPA/NASPA Professional Competencies in the classroom and practical experiences, and meets the standards established by the Council for the Advancement of Standards (CAS) for student affairs programs. Providing quality education in student affairs, as well as a sound background for individuals interested in pursuing future doctoral degrees in higher education is at the forefront of our mind.
