The Terminal Degree & Is It for Me?

Career and Workforce Development Supporting the Profession African American Senior Level
November 11, 2019   |  3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Ceceilia Parnther Janelle Love Lorenzo Baber Mary Howard-Hamilton

Please note: Time zones are in Eastern.

This session is free for members of the African American Knowledge Community through December 12, 2019. For more information about pricing (and how to make sure you're getting the appropriate discount), please read below the course description.

NASPA's African American Knowledge Community (AAKC) is hosting a conversation on what questions individuals should be asking prior to applying to a PhD/EdD program. Our panelists consist of Black faculty and/administrators in doctoral programs across that country that have a focus in Higher Education/Student Affairs Administration. The general purpose of the panel is to engage in a conversation around the selection process, timing, and the intentional planning (in both career & life) that goes into selecting a graduate program. 

While our target audience are the members of the AAKC, the content that will be provided is invaluable to anyone who engages. It is critical that African American, Black, and other historically marginalized professionals are highlighted as leaders and mentors within the profession; this is one opportunity for this to occur. The AAKC's live briefing engages with several items within NASPA's strategic plan by:

  • Fostering and promoting volunteer engagement that enhances effective professional practice and pathways to leadership.
  • Opening pathways throughout the Association and the student affairs profession for equity-seeking, historically minoritized, and marginalized communities.
  • Investing in and promoting a scholar-practitioner identity and mindset within the student affairs profession.

We hope that you take time to engage with the African American Knowledge Community on Monday, November 11th at 1:00 PM ET.
