Relevant education for a remarkable campus culture

Chances are you’ve benefited greatly from somebody with a degree in student personnel administration. Think of your life as a student, and you’ll understand exactly how important a professional in this field can be to a student’s success. From resident life and student activities to academic advising and campus ministry and more, this program allows you the opportunity to become a leader in academia and make a positive difference in today’s high schools, colleges, and universities.

The Student Personnel Administration in Higher Education program of Concordia University Wisconsin will prepare you in mind, body, and spirit – through courses grounded in student affairs – to provide you with a better understanding of how to bring your “whole self” to your profession. Whether you’re an associate dean, a director in admission, or a leader in resident life, you’ll graduate this program with a strong understanding of how to be the kind of servant-leader every student needs.

What to expect

Think of all the ways you have benefited from a student affairs administrator while in school. Those are the types of things you’ll learn to do in this program. You’ll study the basics of student affairs administration and learn how generational, social, racial, ethnic, and religious diversity impacts the campus environment. You’ll also gain an understanding of the legal issues that crop up between public and private institutions and their governing boards, administrators, faculty, student affairs staff, and governmental bodies. You’ll explore higher education law, the role of law on campus, and the relationship between the law and the work in student affairs and athletics.

You’ll be surprised by how much you learn from your peers in this program, not just from their knowledge but from their own personal experience as a student. But to sum it up: everything you learn in this program will sharpen your leadership skills and edge you closer to being the servant leader you are destined to become.
