Loyola participates in national student affairs mentorship program
November 30, 2012
Students who wish they could continue to be part of a collegiate lifestyle after graduation are in luck. Loyola University New Orleans is participating in a mentoring program developed by the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators for undergraduate students wishing to explore and better understand the field of student affairs and/or higher education.
The NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program is targeted to juniors and seniors and requires a one-year commitment during which students meet regularly with their assigned mentor and work on a collaborative project. This year’s collective project at Loyola is the “One Loyola, One Community Civility Campaign.” The goal of this initiative is to raise awareness of the relationship between personal behavior and the quality of campus life, and to support a safe and inclusive campus environment that facilitates student success.
Loyola’s Vice President for Student Affairs and Associate Provost M.L."Cissy" Petty, Ph.D., is this year’s president of the Jesuit Association of Student Personnel Administrators and a member of the board of directors for the mentoring program. She said involvement in these types of programs helps to ensure a diverse professional work force in the field of student affairs and higher education.
Loyola welcomes six new fellows to the program this year:
- Katherine Campbell, junior, English/Creative Writing
- Joseph Cunningham, senior, Spanish
- Kaiya Knox, junior, English/Creative Writing
- Michael Morin, senior, Music Education
- Rachael White, senior, Music Performance
- Margaret Vienne, senior, English/Creative Writing
Students wishing to apply for next year’s program should contact Courtney E. Williams, assistant director of Campus Activities, at 504-865-2588.
