Student services, student affairs, or student support is the department or division defined as a critical aspect of the higher education experience. It provides services and support for students at institutions of higher education to enhance student growth and development in the United States and abroad. The work done by student affairs professionals helps students begin a lifetime journey of growth and self-exploration. This lines right up with the roles and responsibilities of a Human Services Professional. A Human Services professional is someone who contributes to the quality of life by providing direct service, improved accessibility and accountability, and partnerships. Thus, my capstone in the Student Services department at Goodwin College has allowed me to work in this capacity and demonstrate the skills that I have acquired.
