Employment within student affairs divisions offers environments in which students can apply the knowledge they have gained, as well as acquire new competencies, helping them to build solid foundations for their futures. Researchers used an online survey to assess the outcomes associated with part- time student employment within the student affairs division at a large Midwest university. Results show duration of employment, rank, sense of community, civic engagement, and cultural awareness to be strong predictors of student development in preparation for their futures.
