Student Organizations: Promoting Student Development in FCS
Wright, Lindsay E.; Kimberly, Claire
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v109 n2 p54-56 Spr 2017
Colleges strive to increase leadership, service, and employability skills of their students; professional organizations are one way for students to learn such abilities. One AAFCS-accredited department has a student organization that has found relative success. Students indicated a desire for additional information about the field of family and consumer sciences and networking opportunities; they also noted that time conflicts created challenges to being active in the organization. Research is needed to investigate how the AAFCS core concepts can be promoted within student organizations.
