The Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Services supports three standing committees for division wide opportunities for involvement and contributions. The work of the committees over the last two years has made an impact on the work that we do collectively. Learn more about each of these committees below.
The DSAES Assessment Committee is charged with the systematic collection, review, and use information about the effectiveness of the services and programs provided by each unit comprising the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Services for the purpose of improving student learning and development. In addition, the Assessment Committee provides expertise to individual units for their specific assessment plans and methodologies to ensure that all programs and services will meet or exceed nationally accepted standards.
This committee convenes marketing and communications leaders across the division on a monthly basis to create a collaboration space, serve as a sounding board for each other, and offer support and resources to MarCom professionals within the division in order to be as effective as possible in their roles. The committee has two sub-groups, each meeting once per semester: the “Think Tank” provides anyone in the division with access to the MarCom group via consultations and idea generation to assist departments and programs with their marketing endeavors, such as, reaching their target audiences, working within the University of Houston brand, or any other marketing-related questions. The second group is coordinated with the division’s professional development committee to provide division staff members with training and trend observation within the scope of higher education marketing and communications.
The DSAES Professional Development Committee coordinates opportunities for all staff members within the Division to gain knowledge and insight on topics pertaining to trends in higher education, student development, professional growth and other topics tied to the Student Success mission. In addition, the Professional Development Committee also works to develop and coordinate the Student Affairs and Enrollment Services Awards and Recognition Program and Winter Social.
In the fall of 2018, the Division formed a Diversity and inclusion Committee Group to conduct a self-assessment of the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Services’ (DSAES) Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) efforts.
The Development Committee organizes educational opportunities for all staff members within the division on matters related to current higher education fundraising trends. The committee works to share communication strategies that are both compelling and donor-centric in order to gain support from our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and supporters.
Customer Service Committee
The DSAES Customer Service Committee creates and develops strategies to assist departments within the division with implementing the division’s Customer Service Standard. In addition to creating and developing strategies, the DSAES Customer Service Committee, also, will provide access to training and materials as they relate to unifying the division around serving our customers.
