Faculty/Staff as Activity Providers
Activity Providers are typically MSU faculty and staff members who lead, organize, and advise student experiences outside of the scope of academic credit. A faculty/staff member at MSU must validate student participation in the activity for it to appear on a Spartan Experience Record. Faculty and staff activity providers are also essential in helping students discover new opportunities aligned with academic, career, and personal goals.
Faculty/Staff as Participation Validators
Campus members with elevated platform permissions will validate or authenticate students’ involvement in the various activities in the Spartan Experience Record. Students can add “unvalidated” experiences to their records as well.
Peer mentors in student organizations, on-campus housing, living learning communities, and leadership programs play a vital role in role modeling and facilitating students’ involvement and engagement on campus. Peer mentors have access to the Spartan Experience Record catalog and can assist their student peers in filtering search results to narrow options in alignment with their goals.
