Professional Development and Course Materials from the National Study on Women in Higher Education and Student Affairs
John A. Mueller
Chair, Commission for Professional Preparation
ACPA’s Commission for Professional Preparation (CPP) is pleased to announce the availability of three sets of slideshows and annotated bibliographies (free and downloadable) for courses and/or professional development opportunities. These materials were developed through a CPP grant awarded to Dr. Penny Pasque and Brenton Wimmer, the National Study on Women in Higher Education and Student Affairs at the University of Oklahoma.
You may find these resources useful for courses on gender in higher education and student affairs, diversity in higher education, intergroup dialogue courses that focus on gender, and for qualitative research courses. In addition, the slideshows might be beneficial for a class session or workshop on women leadership, mentoring between women, intersectionality, or qualitative research methodologies.
The materials are available on the Resources page of the ACPA CPP Web site.
As assessment professionals and scholars, we hope these essays will provide readers with new ideas and starting points for conversations about assessment needs. We believe these promising practices are components of comprehensive, participatory assessment plans. Backed by professional literature, we are confident that building a culture of assessment in student affairs requires individuals to envision a system that transcends unit-specific boundaries.
The Commission for Professional Preparation thanks Penny and Brenton for these valuable resources!
