Dear Colleague:

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the 2014 graduates of the Student Affairs in Higher Education (SAHE) master’s program at IUP who are now seeking full-time professional employment. We are very proud of our students and believe the preparation they have received will serve our profession well. If you have staff vacancies in your division, please share this link with appropriate colleagues.

Our 42-credit program spans two years, culminates in a comprehensive exam or thesis, and exceeds CAS Standards. The faculty members (Dr. Holley Belch, Dr. Mimi Benjamin, Dr. John Mueller, and I) comprise an independent academic department focused exclusively on the preparation of student affairs professionals. During our program’s more than 40-year history, over than 800 graduates have been placed in professional roles across the country. This year’s graduates are ready and eager to begin their professional careers. All of these students have had a variety of practical experiences to complement their rigorous academic work. They understand the history, literature, and theory base of our profession and are eager to apply their knowledge and experiences in a challenging and rewarding professional position.

You can see the résumés from the Class of 2014 here. I encourage you to contact students directly if you see one or several in which you have interest.

Thank you in advance for your interest in our graduates, and best wishes with all of your professional searches.
