Student Affairs Programs and Assessment
Student Affairs Programs and Assessment (SAPA) provides leadership for assessment across the division, for parent programs and communication, and for the department of Student Publications. The office includes the director, administrative assistant, and coordinator of student publications.
SAPA is responsible for division wide assessment, effectiveness practices, and the A Team. SAPA established and spearheads the Student Affairs Student Employee Experience which connects students employed in Student Affairs departments to classroom learning, personal goals, and skill development as part of their student employment experience. SAPA coordinates the communication and activities of the Austin Peay Parent and Family Association, the APSU Parent Portal, and communications for first-year parents and families. In concert with the coordinator, the department produces the APSU Student Handbook and Calendar, the Student Affairs Annual Review, and the New Student Guide. The New Student Guide is provided to new students and parents at summer ROW registration sessions. During ROW sessions, the director facilitates the Commuter Session for parents and families.
SAPA also coordinates the annual "I Survived Freshman Move-In" new resident and family dinner, the Student Affairs Holiday Reception, the Help-An-Elf holiday gift program, and parent events.
