The goal of the Session Long Project is to reflect on your role as a current, or future, leader of an inclusive higher education program or service. Each SLP will require you to develop a component of the Session Long Project and you will submit a complete project in Module 4.
The components are outlined below:
SLP 1: Practitioner Self Reflection
SLP 2: Identify a special population and discuss current resources
SLP 3: Assess current services for this special population
SLP 4: Develop an action plan to improve services
You have identified a special population on your campus (research Harvard) and discussed their needs and types of support services they are likely to access to ensure their success in college. Next, you will assess the current support services for these students at your campus.
Write a 2-page paper with the following components:
What is the campus doing to support these students?
Are support services adequate or need improvement?
Are support services accessible and inclusive to these students?
What impact does the student affairs practice model have on these students?
Are their needs being met under the current structure?
Refer to the table in Case 3.
