Week 6 – Final Paper

Student Services as a Profession

[WLO: 2] [CLOs: 1, 2, 3]

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review Parts Three and Four in the course textbook.

The purpose of the Final Paper is to gain perspective regarding a profession in student services by undertaking research and using your Week 4 interview with a student services practitioner in admissions, advising, tutoring, or other support services. You will then use the responses from the interview to synthesize and analyze your findings based on what you learned in this course.

Note the following list and summaries of activities due in Weeks 1, 2, and 4, which were preliminary to this Final Paper:

  • Week 1 Analytical Paper assignment: Select and analyze a topic or issue to be included in the interview and Final Paper.
  • Week 2 Schedule and Plan the Interview assignment: Schedule a one-hour (or longer) meeting to take place by or before Day 2 of Week 4.
  • Week 4 Conduct and Report on the Interview: Conduct the interview before the end of Day 2, Week 4, and submit a summary of, and reflections on, the interview by Day 7 of Week 4.

During the interview, you were required to ask, at minimum, the following six questions, plus the two or three questions you developed on your selected topic area and issue, plus any other questions that address areas important to you:

  • Why did you decide to pursue a career in student services?
  • What skills/competencies do you feel are necessary for a career in student services and why?
  • What do you think is the purpose of student services in higher education?
  • What are some strategies for being successful in the field of student services?
  • What are some challenges with a career in student services?
  • How do you collaborate with faculty to support student success?

In your paper, address the following:

In the introduction section,

  • Identify your interviewee, including his or her place of employment, position, roles, and responsibilities.
  • Describe the issue you selected in Week 1 and discussed with your interviewee.
  • Explain why you selected the issue and what you hoped to learn from the interviewee.

In the body of the paper,

  • Analyze the interview responses with reference to at least one of the theoretical bases of the student services profession (see Part Three of your textbook), addressing for the similarities and differences between theory and practice.
  • Explain how the skills/competencies that the student services practitioner mentioned in the interview relate to the 10 essential competencies listed in your textbook (Part Five).
  • Assess how well the student services practitioner engages in good practices for academic and student services partnerships.
  • Identify the challenges that were revealed during the interview.
  • Provide recommendations for overcoming these challenges.

In the conclusion,

  • Discuss what you have learned from the interview and from the course and how both will shape your development as a student services practitioner.
