In three and half pages write an essay about student affairs from my points as (an international student. Master student and a lecturer)
– I do not want reference on it (only view)
-these are several functional areas of student affairs (academic advising, career service, community service, multicultural and diversity, religious and spritual life, student activities, student counseling, student Health, residential life, admission, orientation program).
-you can present each functional area in one paragraph through the essay
-this is the real question which my professor gave me:
Based on what you have learned/experienced in this course, as well as your own experiences in higher education, please develop a personal philosophy statement and professional development plan that outlines your core beliefs as it relates to being (or potentially being) a student affairs educator. Feel free to make this paper somewhat autobiographical in nature, recounting your own journey in higher education, and experiences with student affairs educators along the way. You may want to design your paper in three sections, as described below: 1. Your journey thus far in higher education – as a student and in any/all staff roles. Please describe the skills and experiences you believe you have developed/garnered to this point. 2. A statement of your vision/beliefs about student affairs in higher education – i.e., the role that student affairs play in students’ educational experiences. Discuss what you see as your role (or potential role) in students’ growth and development. 3. A personal plan of action that, drawing upon what you have written in sections 1 and 2, shares how you personally hope and plan to make a difference in and for education. On a practical level, please offer a specific action plan that includes goals, strategies, and timelines for yourself. This paper is intended to allow you an opportunity to articulate aspects of your own philosophy of student affairs, and to give serious consideration to your path forward.
