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.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
