Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs
The Chicago School of Professional Psychology was named to the 30+ Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs list of higher education institutions. A national study conducted by the Center for Inclusion, Diversity and Academic Success (IDEAS) and presented by Diverse: Issues in Higher Education and the American College Personnel Association (ACPA). The IDEAS study yields insight into diversity in the student affairs workplace and offers a useful tool for employers, career services staff, and job-seekers across the country. With a focus on workplace diversity, staffing practices and work environment, a five-member advisory board and IDEAS research team found The Chicago School to be among the best at promoting diversity recruitment. A web-based survey approach to examine categories such as family friendliness, salary/benefits and professional development opportunities was used as the determining criteria.
