Career in Student Affairs

If you truly want to make a difference in the lives of students inside and outside the classroom, then student affairs is the profession for you.

                                                                                                                 – Barbara Henley, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.

Jobs in student affairs in higher education range from psychologist to accountant, fundraiser, concert promoter, personal and athletic trainer, facilities manager and attorney.
Many professionals in student affairs learn about the field when they are in college, working as student orientation leaders, housing resident assistants, student organization leaders or student workers. A university is an exciting work environment filled with energy, enthusiasm and opportunities for life-long learning.

UIC students interested in the profession are encouraged to visit the Office of Career Services. Additionally, special leaning and informational opportunities will be offered during National Careers in Student Affairs Month in October.
