The College Student Affairs program from Rutgers University is based on the academic requirements established by the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) which have been endorsed by NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education and ACPA: College Student Educators International. Learning opportunities for students include combinations of classroom instruction, project-based learning, field experiences, internships, and individualized learning.
The CSA program has an applied focus—the integrated learning experience helps students develop the knowledge, skills and work experience to prepare them to be student affairs professionals. Student Affairs professionals work directly with students in a wide range of specialty areas that include, but are not limited to: housing and residence life, campus unions, student activities, volunteer student services, educational programming, counseling and advising, career development and placement, new student orientation, admissions and enrollment management, services for students from underrepresented groups, retention programs, assessment offices, parent programs, student judicial programs, service learning, academic advising, disability services, Greek affairs, campus recreation programs, veterans services, cultural centers, and health and wellness services.
The Rutgers University Graduate School of Education is dedicated to the study and improvement of education. The creation of knowledge about teaching and learning is central to our mission. We seek to ensure that all children and adults have access to high quality educational programs. As such, our work addresses the cognitive, social, organizational, cultural, linguistic, developmental, and policy dimensions of education.
