Career Readiness: A Shared Responsibility Between Student Affairs & Academic Affairs
At R1 institutions, career outcomes have focused on the first destination, with corporate hiring and graduate school enrollment. Today, student success is larger than a first destination. “Career Readiness” is now an accepted student success outcome. Yet, how do research-intensive institutions frame this explicitly as tied to institutional learning outcomes and a shared responsibility of academic and student affairs? Three institutions, Stony Brook University - SUNY, College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota, and University of Texas at Austin- will share their models and approaches.
Assessment, Communication, and Fundraising: Storytelling, Collaboration, and Success
Assessment, communications, and fundraising have unique purposes, processes, and outcomes. Each one is vital to Divisions of Student Affairs. In addition, there is often opportunity for the three functional areas to overlap and create synergy to meet a variety of goals and communicate the value of investing in student affairs. In this session, learn how assessment merges these areas to weave a story that is not only data driven, but that is relevant to institutional and external stakeholders.
Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice Learning Bundle
This bundled on-demand package includes presentations designed to give introductions to marginalized or minoritized student populations on our campuses, as well as how to weave social justice initiatives into all of your programs. Read below to see more about each of the included sessions.
Embracing Neurodiversity in Higher Education – How You Can Shape a Future of Acceptance
“Neurodiversity” is both a biological and a cultural phenomenon. Learning about the culture of neurodiversity will widen your perspective for those whose brains function in ways different from the neurotypical mainstream. This strengths-based, positive approach will alter your view of "outside-the-box" thinkers. Learn how proper niche construction can mold the future for neurodivergent students and how you can provide a community of acceptance for your campus.
Peer Education Advisors Continuing Education - Archive
NAPSA Members can access available On-Demand recordings of Peer Education Advisors Continuing Education sessions. Each session provides peer education advisors opportunities to learn new strategies, skills, and tactics to enhance their peer education program.
Supervision Skills: Developing Skills for Successful Leaders in Student Affairs
A key indicator of employee satisfaction is successful, equitable, and fair supervision. However, few student affairs staff receive formal supervision training, thus impacting the staff experience and retention. As a new generation of professionals enter the field, we must relearn supervision strategies to meet the needs of the evolving workforce, addressing existing gaps in our supervisory competencies. Presenters will share their supervision development work, provide resources, and engage attendees in dialogue on best practices
Proactively Supporting First-gen Mental Health: CSUDH Case Study
Presenters will share a case study examining how California State University, Dominguez Hills successfully implemented a proactive mental and emotional wellness curriculum to support first-generation students' mental health. Participants will participate in experiential exercises from the fields of positive psychology, mindfulness, and self-compassion.
A Campus Mobile Crisis Team: The Right Resources at the Right Time
In recognition of the growing need for versatile crisis resources for campuses, Oregon State University collaborated with local, national, and university partners to research and create a new crisis response team, OSU Assist. OSU Assist responds to a myriad of crisis situations such as: suicide ideation, survivor support, mental health assessment, delivery of difficult news, welfare checks, etc. From conception to launch, the presentation will include key considerations, stakeholders, and benchmarks that were considered along the way. As the program has been operating since September 2022, reflections will also include what the team has learned and continuing to improve upon in the next phases of the service
Simultaneous Alcohol and Cannabis Use: What Campus Prevention Professionals Need To Know
Research has increasingly spotlighted the simultaneous use of alcohol and cannabis/marijuana (i.e., using both substances such that effects overlap) and concurrent alcohol and cannabis/marijuana use (i.e., using both substances but not necessarily at the same time). In our next “3 for 60” webinar, 3 of the nation’s leading researchers will describe their own research addressing the prevalence, patterns, and consequences of simultaneous use, with an eye toward what campuses need to know and opportunities for prevention.
Demystifying Institutional Data to Drive First-generation Student Success
Presenters from the Center for First-generation Student Success will identify key data sources and metrics that institutions should consider as they leverage data to inform decision-making and advance first-generation student success.
Utilizing Career Readiness Competencies to Elevate Student Employment
Student employees play a vital role in the success of an institution. But the struggle to hire students has become more pronounced in the last year. As educators, we have a responsibility to not only give students a paycheck but also help them connect with the broader skills and learning that result from on-campus employment. Adopting a career readiness framework for student employees can help add value for both you and your students. Iowa State University embarked on this journey several years ago, resulting in the creation of the ISU Career Ready framework. Attendees will be given a brief overview of the data surrounding the need for career competencies. Next, we will cover the creation of the ISU Career Ready framework and highlight several departments and offices on campus implementing the competencies, most prominently Recreation Services. Finally, we will walk through and share a practical toolkit full of ready-to-use documents and materials to help you in your journey!
Developing and Implementing Programs for First-generation College Students
This session will offer participants an opportunity to engage in a discussion on the development and implementation of first-generation student programming. Discussing key themes identified in the book, Developing and Implementing Promising Practices and Programs for First-Generation College Students (Troy et al., 2022), presenters will provide insight into key strategies to develop and implement programs and practices for first-generation students.
