    Adapting to new generations of students’ programming needs can prove challenging. A programming board on a small campus cannot be effective if the job functions are irrelevant to the current climate needs. In this session we will discuss restructuring and rebranding and the positive effect it can have on your board. Presented at the 2019 NACA National Convention in Columbus, OH.

We will view clips from “Eye of the Beholder” the original blue eye/brown eye Jane Elliot experiment and “Silent Beats” a short film by Jon Chu. Both provide us with insights about ourselves and others. We will discuss what has changed in the 30 years in between and what hasn’t. Presented at the 2019 NACA National Convention in Columbus, OH.

    Looking for a new way to collect data at your on-campus programs? With recent resource constraints, we must determine who is utilizing our programs and services, and who we are missing. This session will explain how Rutgers University Programming Association - New Brunswick utilizes interactive poster boards to find out what students they are reaching on campus, and how they are reaching these students (ex. Facebook, Digital signage, etc.). This technology-free method is a great alternative for schools that are interested in collecting data but do not have access to a student identification swipe system, or reliable wireless internet connection at events.

    Published: 2/17/2019   
    View Resource
    We are continually trying to find ways to get students involved. We promise social benefits, tout skills gained through participation, and even share data to prove why getting engaged on campus will be useful. However, this is often done in isolation within a single department. With this in mind, our team took a different approach and developed Show Up, Sign Up, Level Up, an initiative that combines the three pieces of involvement which applies to engagement while in college and is a process that students will utilize throughout life. How do students know if they want to join something unless they check it out first (Show Up). Once they have been to a few things, they can decide where they want to spend their time (Sign Up). Once they are involved, they will take on more responsibilities and learn new skills (Level Up). Come hear how this campaign has expanded to include other Student and Academic Affairs departments throughout campus. Presented at the 2019 NACA National Convention in Columbus, OH.

  • The Dream in Practice Webinar Series - What’s Involvement Got to Do With Underrepresented College Students’ Success?
    Institution: Do Good Work Educational Consulting LLC
    Author(s): Dr. Terrell Strayhorn
    Published: 1/23/2019   
    View Resource
    Decades of empirical research have shown that involvement matters in terms of college student success. Students who are involved purposefully in meaningful high-quality experiences earn better grades, persist at higher rates, and feel better about their overall experience compared to less- or non-involved peers. More recent research has demonstrated that investing time and energy to collegiate activities (clubs/organizations), sports, fraternities, gospel choirs, and more fosters a strong sense of belonging for students, especially underrepresented groups. In this webinar, Dr. Terrell Strayhorn, author of College Students’ Sense of Belonging: A Key to Educational Success for All Students, shares his theory of belonging, new insights from the 2nd edition of his book, and highlights practical example of how we can promote involvement, foster belonging, and ensure student success on an array of college campuses! At the end, participants in this webinar will be able to: -Articulate the connection between students’ involvement in campus activities and student success -Identify and describe the core elements of Strayhorn’s (2019) revised theory of belonging -Draw linkages between involvement, belonging, and students’ sense of mattering -List and explain at least three (3) ways to foster students belonging through campus involvement -Recall and list at least three (3) experts or resources on the topic of involvement and belonging -Apply information from the webinar to immediate practice in forming new or revising existing campus activities

  • A Golf Cart Parade Evolves into Lock Haven University's Best Campus Tradition
    Institution: Lock Haven University

    Published: 1/1/2019

    For colleges and universities, campus traditions are vital to making students feel like they belong. Big events that make the campus buzz are part of what makes a campus more than just buildings and green space – they create community and connectedness. In 2009, the Lock Haven University Student Activities Office and the Haven Activities Council programming board saw a need for a Homecoming activity to excite students early in the week and to celebrate what it means to be a Lock Haven student. So, they developed an idea for a tradition that would turn Homecoming into an event that engaged all students equally. The Homecoming Golf Cart Parade brings clubs and organizations together to decorate unique floats showcasing their individuality and school spirit.

    Student programming leaders gain valuable skills through their positions and can leverage these skills when they apply for internships and full-time jobs after graduation. Their experiences can help distinguish them from other intern and job candidates. I’d like to share ways student programmers can collaborate with their supervisors to develop the competencies and skills future employers are seeking, as well as other resources that can be helpful in landing internships and/or full-time jobs.
