Let’s face it, we are all pretty tired of having to care about Trump and Clinton. It’s exhausting, and you probably feel like there’s little you can really do. At least that’s how I feel. But there’s one type of politics you can take a little more control over: politics in the work place.
This month, as we partner with NASPA for #SAChat during #CSAM16, the focus will be navigating politics as a professional in higher education.
“Workplace politics” covers a lot of topics. We hope to touch on how to navigate as a graduate student, middle manager, and SSAO. This month, let’s talk about those burning questions that get murky in our day-to-day lives. Are you a manager who needs to take charge more? Or a graduate intern that needs to stand up for themselves? How do you balance your personal beliefs and your job within your institution? How do you build partnerships when silos exist?
If you have answers to any of these questions, or a whole other topic under the politics umbrella, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to include your thoughts in this series!
But first, let’s raise a glass to your careers in Student Affairs. You are in the driver’s seat, and we know your destination is a beautiful one.
