Assessment Toolkit

Common assessment resources are available via the Assessment and Professional Development SharePoint page located at under Departments.

Employee Development Calendar

APD has created an event calendar for all student affairs departments to post their events related to professional development that are open to all student affairs employees and graduate assistants. We also post free webinars that may have relevance to student affairs educators here. Go to → select APD under departments → Employee Development Calendar.

Professional Development Toolkit

Debuting in late summer 2018, APD is compiling online resources and tools to assist Student Affairs employees in organizational and individual employee development. Archives of the APD Picks, a reproducible training library of customizable soft-skills course templates, and tools and resources for organizational and individual development, such as mentoring map and employee development templates, will be included and regularly updated.

Subject Matter Experts

Debuting in late summer 2018, Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) are individuals utilized by student affairs and Virginia Tech departments to assist with projects or professional development related to their area of expertise. SMEs focus on competency development (i.e., knowledge, skills, abilities, and opportunities) to advance student affairs as an organization through learning opportunities related to student affairs initiatives and the Aspirations for Student Learning.
