Over my 15+ years at Georgia State University, I wrote most of the content for the 30+ websites within the Division of Student Affairs. The experts checked the facts in their fields, but I completed and edited the articles. I also created most of the content for departmental booklets, training materials, the Division’s annual reports, and a large volume of marketing messages each month for various target audiences.
The following are samples of some pieces shown in their entirety on this website if some would prefer to read the information in context. There are links to the complete files at the bottom of the page.
Sample 1: Counseling & Testing Center
The Counseling and Testing Center, accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services (I.A.C.S), provides a wide range of counseling, testing, psychiatric, and holistic health services to support students as they work to reach their educational goals. The primary goal of the Counseling and Testing Center is to support Georgia State University students in achieving their personal and educational goals by enhancing their mental and emotional health, interpersonal relationships, and academic performance through accessible, professional, culturally competent, and empirically supported services. The Counseling and Testing Center is committed to promoting inclusion with services designed to provide respectful treatment to students of every background.
Student Health Promotion
Student Health Promotion provides services, events, programs, and partnerships that increase health literacy, healthy communication, and healthy choices for Georgia State University students. This is accomplished by campus-wide outreach events and small group
workshops targeting alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, health and safety, nutrition, healthy sexuality, and violence prevention.
Student Health Clinic
One of the primary contributions of the Student Health Clinic to the institutional mission is the facilitation of students meeting the immunization requirement of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia. The clinic staff correctly input over 8,000 immunization records to facilitate the smooth enrollment of students at Georgia State University, and next year this will be completed through the electronic medical records database, which will interface with Banner, saving students time and the need to travel to campus.
Black Student Achievement
Black Student Achievement (BSA) provides university-wide services and support programming in many areas, such as cultural enrichment, racial awareness, ethnicity, diversity, leadership training, and organizational development. BSA promotes quality services and programs related to the retention, progression, and graduation of African Americans attending Georgia State University. Black Student Achievement’s goals are to provide access, integrity, and inclusion in all services.
Black Student Achievement offers free academic support to all students through tutorial services and the GRE PREP workshops. The GRE provides schools with a common measure for comparing candidates’ qualifications. Admissions or fellowship panels use GRE scores to supplement undergraduate records, recommendation letters, and other qualifications for graduate study. Students who participate in the GRE workshops at Black Student Achievement show significant improvement in their scores.
The following are links to samples of brochures, annual reports, and some simplistic training materials, where I created the project from concept through to completion. This included creating the initial idea, writing content, and the art direction for all the projects listed. This is only a small sampling of writing materials that I created for the Division of Student Affairs. Please feel free to contact me if you would like additional samples.
