CACUSS Identity Project

May 2012

The CACUSS Board has published Reflections on the CACUSS Identity Project in the May 2012 edition of Communiqué. You can download a copy here.
This document will serve as a guide for the CACUSS Board strategic planning process taking place in June 2012. Thank you to the 250+ members who provided feedback in this process.

June 2011

In June 2011, CACUSS published the paper entitled Leaders in Learning: Student Affairs in Canada in the 21st Century & Implications for the Canadian Association of College and University Student Services.
From the document:

This paper attempts to position the field of student services, as both a practice and a federation of professions, and CACUSS, as an organization, in the context of 21st century transformation. It is written to give contemporary meaning to the work of those in the field at all stages of their careers. It paints a picture for those outside our field – for faculty, administrators, students, our colleagues around the world – of the ways in which we, as Canadians, approach holistic learning and the role that we play in facilitating learning in this country’s colleges and universities. And, above all, it was written to stimulate a conversation, to cure complacency, and to place our work as integral to the success of hundreds of thousands of post-secondary students in Canada today.

Next Steps

Over 130 members have participated in conversations about the document as well as future directions for CACUSS as an organization. This feedback will form the basis for some deep reflection for the CACUSS organization about priorities and strategic goals for the organization. We will be seeking feedback and consultation from the membership between now and Spring 2012.

Many thanks to the members who were involved with this project, but in particular to Deanne Fisher for authoring the document, and members of the CACUSS Board of Directors, for seeing the project move forward.
