Mini-U: A Novel Approach to Professional Staff Development in Student Affairs.
Beeler, Kent D.
This brochure describes the novel professional staff development model used by the Division of Student Affairs (DSA) at Eastern Michigan University. The inservice training model revolved around the design and implementation of a Mini-University format for the 76 staff professionals and six graduate assistants within the DSA. Basically, the "Mini-U" consists of a combination of the concepts of the Free University model and a mini-course, in that it consists of an effort to accomplish rather specific instructional objectives with a small group of learners in a brief time period. Eleven non-tuition Mini-U courses were generated in the early fall, seven of which met minimum enrollment requirements. Course descriptions and implementation efforts are included in this brochure.
