College Student Personnel

Our Mission

Our mission is to prepare graduate students for work serving others in higher education or related services. The program provides students with an education grounded in research, theory, and practical experience. The CSP program follows a cohort model to promote an inclusive community, to facilitate peer to peer learning, and to provide opportunities for professional socialization.

Our History

The CSP program is more than sixty years old, with our first student graduating in 1947. Since then, more than 500 students have graduated from the program.

“I am regularly thankful for the experiences and lessons learned in the CSP program. I can honestly say that I am much better prepared than I ever expected I would be. The coursework was exactly what I needed to step into my role and be ready for these challenges. Thankful for all the time and energy you all put into my education and career!”

– Danny Coradazzi, CSP Cohort 2015
