Greetings from Bloomington, home of the Indiana University Hoosiers! On behalf of everyone with the Higher Education & Student Affairs (HESA) program at IU, we are excited to be a part of your graduate program search. We know that the process can be complex and even overwhelming, but we are confident that you will enjoy your experience and find it worth the effort. Please explore this website to find out more about the Outreach process and assistantship opportunities available to you for the coming year. In addition, don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have as you go along!
Each year, the Student Personnel Assoication at Indiana University (SPA at IU) hosts two Outreach weekends for prospective students. The weekends for 2017 are February 15-17 and February 22-24. Both Outreach weekends will begin on Wednesday afternoon and end by Saturday morning. The purpose of Outreach is to not only assist you as a prospective student in securing a required assistantship, but to also orient you to the IU HESA program and community. During your visit, you will interview for assistantships and complete a faculty interview, while also visiting with faculty, staff, and current students. We are currently working to provide housing for prospective students, so continue to check the website for more information regarding accommodations.
We encourage you to review the SPAIU website for the latest Outreach 2017 information. We are here to help, and we are excited to share our experiences and advice with you, as well as answer any questions you may have. We wish you the very best in choosing a graduate program and we hope to see you in February 2017!
