Lecturing on Chickering's 7 vectors: March 18th

Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?
Paul Gauguin, 1897

I'll be lecturing on Chickering's 7 vectors and community college student leadership on Tuesday, March 18th at Mt. San Jacinto College from 12:30-1:30pm. Bring your questions and ideas and I look forward to discussing it with you!

Chickering's Theory of Identity Development explains the process of identity development. The theory was created specifically to examine the identity development process of students in higher education. Other organizations and institutions have found it has practical applications for them as well.

 The core concerns are how does a student developing competence, manage their emotions, become autonomous and then interdependent, how do they develop mature interpersonal relationships and an identity, a purpose, and integrity.

For the point of this lecture we want to ask where do student organizations fit in with that both for the leaders and the participants and how might we make better programs that help everyone at different points in their development.

This session is free to students and their families at Mt. San Jacinto College.
