Student Affairs (deprecated)
During the 2010-11 academic year, members of SDAG successfully developed Division-wide learning outcomes that articulate the ways in which students will learn and grow as a result of engaging with Student Affairs educators and their programs, services, and resources. Feedback from all members of the DSA was collected and informed this work.
Welcome from Andrea Conner, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs
In addition to providing students safe, comfortable living spaces, the residence halls at Grinnell College foster a sense of community, and provide a living and learning environment which complements their academic experience. Within these halls, Grinnellians learn to practice self-governance and incorporate the philosophy in their daily lives. Student volunteers fill the roles of Student Advisers, Hall Social Coordinators and Hall Wellness Coordinators, and are charged with building community and serving as a resource for their residents.
The mission of the Evaluation and Assessment program of the Division of Student Affairs (DSA) is to assist in the implementation of evidence-based decision making for various Division programs/departments, while providing support for individual and collective assessment efforts of the Student Development Assessment Group (SDAG).
