Sue Saia re-elected President of KCSAA
Keeping an eye on legislation for Kansas’ community colleges as
well as helping serve as a resource when an issue arises at one of the
19 area schools, Sue Saia, Cowley College’s vice president of student
affairs, was recently re-elected president of the Kansas Chief Student
Affairs Administrators Council.
The group, which is made up of a representative from each of the community colleges in Kansas, meets twice a year to clarify rulings and laws. Saia was selected by her peers to lead the council.
“I am honored to be re-elected by my peers,” Saia said.
As chairperson of the KCSAA, Saia will be responsible for organizing and coordinating state meetings.
Saia, who has been a member of the council for the past 11 years, has a Master's degree in Education from Southwestern College, and obtained her Bachelor's degree from Pittsburg State University where she majored in Psychology and Mathematics.
Along with her work on the KCSAA, Saia is also a member of the Arkansas City Human Relations Commission and serves on the Arkansas City Chamber of Commerce Board and Business and Industry committee.
Her primary roles at Cowley College include responsibility for Career Services, Advising, Counseling, ADA, student services such as Admissions, Financial Aid, Student Activities, Food Service, Housing, Tutoring, Health Services and the Trio grant programs. She also serves on the AQIP Steering Committee and is a liaison for the AQIP Retention Team.
Along with all of this, Saia donates her time to Cowley College’s Foster Parent program and serves as a mentor to several student-athletes involved in the program.
