A goal of the 2021-2026 Division of Student Life Strategic Plan is to, “Cultivate virtual and in person programs and physical spaces that promote a sense of belonging, opportunities for socialization, and community development.” A specific tactic within this goal is to, “Complete a graduate and professional student needs assessment and develop intentional outreach that invites graduate and professional students to participate in [DSL] initiatives and programs.” The Graduate & Professional Student Needs Assessment Work Group was charged with creating and administering a needs assessment to graduate and professional students related to DSL programs, services, and spaces that support their sense of belonging, socialization, and community development.
