The Division of Student Affairs offers a variety of meetings to contribute to employment development and growth. Listed below are the primary meetings offered centrally to division staff.
Student Affairs Educator’s Forum
The Student Affairs Educator’s Forum (SAEF) is open to all members of the Division of Student Affairs who seek to advance their effectiveness as co-curricular educators. A variety of topics are presented to enhance our ability to help foster student success. One to two forums are offered each term to empower staff to make the greatest possible contributions to the division’s strategic priorities. Employees are encouraged to attend sessions that are relevant to their work.
All-division meetings are held once per term and are intended for all student affairs employees at OSU. Content of meetings varies but programming is designed to appeal to the division as a whole. In the spring, the meeting is the Annual Service Awards, which is an opportunity to recognize our colleagues for their contributions to enhancing our students’ experience at OSU.
Student Affairs New Employee Welcome and Orientation
Orientations are are held twice per year (fall and spring). Employees new to student affairs within the last year are encouraged to attend, even if not new to OSU. The meetings are hosted by the vice provost for student affairs and the dean of student life. Participants learn about the priorities and vision for the Division of Student Affairs at OSU, while engaging with other new colleagues.
