This year the Higher Education Student Personnel Association (HESPA), is excited to continue a new tradition with the 2nd annual HESPA Leadership Fundraising Campaign. HESPA’s mission is to encourage the personal and professional development of all students enrolled in the Higher Education and Student Affairs, graduate programs at The Ohio State University.
As an organization striving to better understand college access, diversity and equity, and student development, we need your help to continue to serve future generations of college students. We are looking to provide research grants, conference/professional development funds, and Ecuador Application Fee Waivers to our master's and doctoral students so that we may continue to leave a legacy in today's field.
Our $2,500 goal will provide HESA students with supplemental professional development funds, Educator Application Fee Waivers, and the continuation of HESPA in the future.
As part of our experience at Ohio State, the Student Personnel Assistantship (SPA) Program has created spaces for us to advise and mentor students, create and implement strategic programming centered around developing student's leadership skills, and engage our campus in multi-cultural conversations to encourage positive social change within our communities.
However, our work does not just encompass Ohio State's campus. Between our master's and doctoral students, we have over 110 individuals working within residence halls, student activities, honors and scholars programs, student conduct, Ohio State's Multi-Cultural Center, and in areas directly pertaining to college access, equity, and student theory. With your help, we can continue to provide the best services to our students in these areas, learn from others in the field, and share best practices across the country through research and conference attendance. As new challenges continue to affect today's college students, we are dedicated to learning from and attributing to the best practices of our colleagues worldwide.
We sincerely appreciate your continuous support and your thoughtful generosity.
Thank you, and Go Bucks!
