Each fall semester, both first-year and second-year master’s students are charged with engaging in research activities that explore relevant populations, issues, and experiences of individuals within college and university contexts. We invite and encourage IU HESA community members and other individuals interested in learning more about current trends and topics in student affairs and higher education to view the culminating presentations of work produced during the Fall 2022 academic term.

Group Assessment Projects
The second-year master’s students spent 16 weeks developing research and assessment projects. In groups of four to five students, each group selected a topic of interest to study. In their endeavor, each group developed research questions, a literature review, collected data, analyzed data, and developed recommendations for research and practice. The video presentations and handouts are products of said research and assessment activities and serve as tools for each group to disseminate their work to leaders, scholars, and other key stakeholders with vested interest in higher education and student affairs. Each project includes a recorded presentation, an associated handout, and bios/reflections of each member of the research team.
Academic Poster & Executive Brief
Our first-year master’s students researched student populations. The executive briefs and poster presentations are intended to be an introduction to college student populations. Given poster sessions are often part of professional association meetings as a means to present and discuss research and literature within the field, this assignment offers our first year students a way to share literature and research with colleagues. The executive briefs offer a summary of the academic poster content, as well as recommended resources. Each project includes a recorded presentation, academic poster, and executive brief.
