  • Like many of you will probably soon be doing, I recently started a new position in the heart of the COVID-19 pandemic. While I was so excited to start working in a new office and to continue my work in higher education, I was faced with a lot of anxiety and uncertainty of what this new experience would be like knowing that many colleges and universities across the country are functioning “off the grid” and almost completely remotely. In my first two weeks, I have learned so much and wanted to share some personal suggestions and advice as you prepare for a unique start to your professional careers in Student Affairs!

Selected Ambassadors work with The Placement Exchange in a variety of ways. Primarily, Ambassadors serve on campuses as the main communication conduit to their peers and faculty.

  • TPE 2021 Important Update

    ​​TPE has been evolving over the past few years with an emphasis on leveraging technology to create more opportunities to enhance both the employer (recruitment) experience as well as the candidate (job search) experience. We have simultaneously been intentional in thinking about the limitations around access that coincide with a place-based in-person interview event.

  • Like our sponsoring organizations, ACUHO-I and NASPA, TPE shares the heartbreak and outrage felt by our student affairs colleagues as we all mourn the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless other Black people killed because of racism and hate. We acknowledge that these tragedies reflect long-standing racial injustice within our nation. We also recognize that our Black colleagues are exhausted and scared, and need space to grieve. Finally, we know that privilege and oppression exist everywhere - in our communities, on our campuses, and amongst our profession.
