ORONO — The University of Maine’s College of Education and Human Development and its Division of Student Affairs will sponsor a Monday Oct. 19 event for those interested in learning more about careers in higher education student affairs.  A Student Affairs Fair, scheduled for 10 a.m.-12 noon on the third floor of Memorial Union, will provide networking opportunities for students in UMaine’s Master’s in Student Development in Higher Education program, while also giving undergraduate students an opportunity to learn more about that graduate program and potential careers.

Student affairs professionals work on college campuses and have opportunities to work with students in several capacities, including advising, counseling, training and supervision.

Current UMaine student affairs professionals will also participate, describing their work and their experiences.
