    Institution: Rowan University
    Author(s): Devon Dyer
    Published: 11/27/2017   
    View Resource
    This session will discuss how to approach revamping a traditional event on campus while still aligning with the university’s culture and needs. It will highlight how to identify if your event needs a change, the thought process behind why the event is done the way it is, and how to enhance or completely uproot and event and start over. Examples from Rowan University will be shared from the presenter. After the lecture portion, students in this session will be divided into groups of people with similar university structure and share stories of their traditional events and how other schools approach the same event or issue. Then, students will be divided into groups of people with different university structure to gain a wider understanding and see what works at other universities. Students will take away strategies and connections that will help when thinking of revamping their longstanding events. Presented at the 2017 NACA Mid Atlantic Regional Conference in Buffalo, NY.

    How do you encourage a student to market your event for you? You give them something in return. And it doesn't have to be something expensive or extravagant like a shirt or gift card - it could be as simple as featuring their post on your social media accounts, liking back, or giving them a print of their post in real time. In this program, we will walk through how some campuses are properly leveraging something that all students are using - social media - and turning it into a tool that drives reach, impressions, and engagement at their events.The program is designed to give you the confidence to embrace social media, and turn it into a central feature at your events.

    Many student leaders are stretched in multiple directions, between all sorts of commitments, both on- and off-campus. It is easy for students to get overwhelmed, stressed, and feel like they won't make it past the next challenge that comes their way. We often talk about grit and resilience as skills that are helpful for all to develop. This session will focus on some real, practical strategies for students to utilize when they feel it is all too much and they LITERALLY CAN'T EVEN. The presenters will provide resources and strategies for building resilience, share stories of individuals who have exhibited perseverance, and discuss real-life scenarios for participants to practice their skills.

    This was a presentation from the 2017 NACA Mid Atlantic and Northeast Conferences. Our nation’s colleges and universities are entrusted to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for students, faculty, staff and community members. However, with the growing number of natural and man-made disasters, this is no easy task. Many of these emergencies occur with little to no warning; therefore, it is critical for institutions of higher education to plan ahead to help ensure the safety and general welfare of all members of the campus community. Emergency preparedness and response on campus is a shared responsibility and this presentation will provide those directly involved with campus activities the tools necessary to mitigate, prepare, respond and recover from a variety of situations. While general preparedness guidelines may not apply in every emergency, organizations are encouraged to integrate their own preparedness philosophies with the circumstances of an emergency.

    Community college students don't want that. There is no time in their schedules to participate in that program. That will never work on my campus. Those theories don't apply to my population. We are just a community college. Do these sound familiar to you? If so, it's time to break ourselves and our campuses out of this mentality. It can be easy to write off community college students as uninterested or unavailable to participate in traditional collegiate engagement programs. However, it is up to us to identify the best practices for student engagement at four-year schools and develop strategies to innovate and restructure them to meet community college students where they are. This webinar will go over strategies and tips to develop a variety of programming and engagement initiatives for community college students, including how to develop partnerships from faculty/staff and cultivate buy-in from students and administration. Examples of proven and effective practices will be shared. Join us to help reinvigorate, revitalize, and re-engage our students at community colleges.
