SASE Areas


Assessment & Retention

As a core function of our department, our office supports the Division of Student Affairs in assessment and retention efforts. From departmental KPI's and Annual Reports to student event evaluations, our team is able to help and assit with DSA departmental needs and requests. 

Almost half of our student population at Wichita State University identifies as first-generation. We celebrate this first step in your journey and are here to support you every step of the way.


Short for Student Affairs Professional, this area focuses primarily on the full-time staff experience. Coordinating events and overseeing the divisions Engagement Agent  Committee, publishing our monthly Harvest Newsletter, and supporting the division onboarding, training, and development initiatives are priorities within this functional area. 


The Student Employee experience is an extremely high impact opportunity to foster student development. ShockerGrow is our initiative that focuses on this experience from undergraduate student employees to graduate assistants. 


The ShockerStrengths Initiative at Wichita State University strives to create experiential learning opportunities to help students recognize their talents to develop, leverage, and apply them toward their personal, academic, and professional goals. It’s also about learning to appreciate others’ talents and strengths to accomplish goals together. We approach this through a strengths-based approach focusing on the talents, strengths, and assets that students bring with them to their college experience.
