Thank you for your interest in our course, Infusing Social Justice into Your New Professional Role, sponsored by the New Professionals and Graduate Students Knowledge Community. During this course, we will discuss topics related to incorporating a lens of diversity within your role as a student affairs professional. Our goal is to build upon NASPA and ACPA’s Competencies to help participants create a personal philosophy related to diversity, understand diversity on both micro and macro levels, and consider how this learning can be applied in professional settings. This course is self-guided with discussion space for dialogue boards to have interaction with course instructors and other participants to discussion questions and provide a space for dialogue with colleagues across our field. We hope that as you progress through this course, you will take away knowledge that will serve you in your role as graduate students and new professionals within student affairs.
