Preparing Grad Students to Lead on a Modern Campus


About This Course

Student affairs graduates are entering a professional field that looks dramatically different from  10 years ago, especially in how information is shared and reputations are built (or dismantled).  Faculty and graduate programs are striving to update their curriculum to ensure that their graduates understand the principles of digital literacy, online presence and branding, and how their personal but public online presence connects to their professional role and influences the brand of their institution.

This briefing took place on  February 23rd but you can still enroll to view the recording and related materials.   The briefing was a townhall style conversation with student affairs graduate students about their thoughts, questions, and answers about how social media and technology is important to their educational experience and in their careers as student affairs practitioners.
