Working/Functional Title

Director of Undergraduate Student Engagement

Position Summary

The Broad College structures and supports student engagement in several different ways including student organizations (approaching 50 unique orgs), case study and other competitions developing business skills and acumen, undergraduate research opportunities, etc. Beyond these structured opportunities, there are a breadth of speaker events, diversity forums, opportunities for student skill development (e.g., programming and analytics) that are made available throughout each semester. In a college as large as Broad and even with ongoing communication efforts, it is often difficult for a student to be aware of these opportunities and even if aware, have robust understanding on how these opportunities support their development. However, employers, corporate partners and alumni have all spoken unanimously about the importance of these co-curricular activities in securing internships, full-time placement, and overall career progress.

During the 2020-21 academic year, the Broad College has engaged in a pilot, Broad360. Broad360 is a student engagement platform delivered to each student’s mobile phone that aggregates student engagement opportunities in an appealing and interactive environment. Broad360 is comprised of a growing number of badges where each badge is made up of a set of required and/or elective activities. The badges are linked to our Assurance of Learning competencies and other important themes. Students are recognized and rewarded through the completion of badges that align to Broad College Assurance of Learning goals and other strategic objectives. Broad360 will be expanded to the entire Broad undergraduate population beginning in Fall 2021. 

The critical job responsibilities of the Director of Undergraduate Student Development include:

• Management and integration of the Broad360 platform into all appropriate Broad curricular and co-curricular activities to increase student engagement and enhance the Broad community.

• Oversight and support of almost 50 Broad Registered Student Organizations

• Co-Advisor to President’s Council, the organizational structure for all Broad student organizations

• Oversee all activities (communication to student and process for linking faculty/staff support) associate with co-curricular learning, specifically global and national case study and other competitions, undergraduate research opportunities, etc.

• Partner with the Russell Palmer Career Management Center for alternative spring break and corporate treks

• Develop relationships with key national associations that support student development including Forte (women in business), etc.

Creating greater visibility and opportunity for student engagement is critical for our Broad students to more fully understand the linkage between their coursework and their professional career development. We firmly believe that increasing visibility and access to such activities will strengthen the Broad undergraduate community where students will hold greater expectations around what they can and should accomplish outside the classroom during their MSU career.
