What is GROW?
GROW (or the Guided Reflection on Work) is a nationally recognized model that allows
for brief, structured conversations between student staff and supervisors about the
connections between work and academics.
GROW was created by the
University of Iowa
and more than 150 schools use the model with student staff on their campuses.

How does GROW work?
The GROW model provides four questions that supervisors ask their student staff to
answer. Conversations can be in an individual or group setting and center around a
student's competency development.
How do I begin?
Supervisors interested in GROW must attend a mandatory GROW Supervisor Training. To
sign up for a GROW Supervisor Training, please complete the GROW Supervisor Training
Request Form. With additional questions, please call 631-632-1198 or email
