The opportunity to participate in calls are increasing!!! Currently, Illinois and Ohio "support groups" hold monthly calls to share best practices, approaches, and challenges. The calls are a great way to network with colleagues in your state.
It is exciting to see that student employment is starting to get a place at the table to discuss the positive impact it has on college students. Two of our very own MASEA members, Ann Wessman (Iowa State University) and Paula McLain (Northwest Missouri State University), had the opportunity to present in Washington D.C. on the topic.
