Remarks from Dr. Clarice Ford – August 2016

As the new school year begins, UIS Student Affairs continues to provide out of the classroom opportunities to our students on-ground and on-line. Recently during our Student Affairs Retreat, we discussed the four learning domains including Cognitive Skills, Resiliency & Practical Skills; Intrapersonal & Interpersonal Development; and Diversity & Social Responsibility. Each session was built on these four domains. It is important as educators to remember based on these four learning domains Blooms and Krathwohl’s taxonomy (1956, 2002) was used to write the divisional learning statement and goals for this school year.

The UIS Wellness Wheel and The National Building Coalition Institute was introduced this year as the new initiatives in the area of Student Affairs. Please continue to familiarize yourself with our University –Wide Strategic Plan and UIS Student Affairs Learning Outcome Statement and Goals. Visit the UIS Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs website in the coming months to learn more about our division.

Again, thank you for all your hard work and dedication to our students. Let’s continue to exercise the ethic of caring in all we do as Student Affairs Professionals.
