    Student activities professionals are confident that student learning and development take place outside of the classroom. Practitioners use evidence-based practices to intentionally design the best possible experiences to enhance student engagement. Our assessment sought to determine how characteristics of high impact practices associated with academic and co-curricular experiences, as defined by the National Survey for Student Engagement (NSSE) and American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) relate and differ from the characteristics of impactful extracurricular experiences. Join us for a conversation as we define and describe the characteristics of high impact extracurricular experiences at the University of Connecticut. This webinar will provide insight as to how you can use a critical lens to examine the impact of extracurricular experiences that your institution currently offers.

  • Becoming an Entrepreneurial and Innovative Leader
    Institution: Johns Hopkins University (MD)

    Published: 11/1/2018   
    View Resource
    In the professional world today, there seems to be a movement in all settings to be “more entrepreneurial.” If one has started a small business or social enterprise, it is a given that one must be entrepreneurial in order to succeed. Being entrepreneurial can often mean different things for different people in different contexts. Therefore, for student affairs professionals and, more specifically, student activities professionals, it’s important for us to consider what are the principles, attributes and skills needed to work in a highly innovative and entrepreneurial environment.

  • Building Training and Leadership Education Based on Principles of Adult Education
    Institution: George Mason University (VA)
    Author(s): Kaitlyn Schmitt
    Published: 11/1/2018   
    View Resource
    Effective training can be hard to design. Training for student leaders is often viewed as boring and irrelevant, but a necessary evil. However, training can be improved by utilizing principles of adult education, or andragogy. College student leaders have matured beyond high school and, consequently, their learning methods have changed from when they were younger. Their learning style is more similar to adults than to children, yet many campus activities trainings still use a teacher-centric “sage-on-the-stage” lecture model. By shifting student leader education to be student-centric and rooted in andragogy, it can become more effective, engaging and enjoyable.

    We student affairs professionals work in offices that focus on and foster student involvement. In our roles as advisors, mentors and staff members, we tend to direct our energy toward helping our students build their résumés by encouraging them to get involved and become connected. We help guide students to make the right choices for themselves; helping them make the most of their college experience. So much of our time is focused on helping them develop and nurture transferable skills that our needs – our professional development, our involvement and our growth – sometimes get lost in the mix or take a backseat. It’s now time to think about our professional experience – how are we enriching our practice and getting involved? How are we staying on the cutting edge?

    At your last programming board meeting, everyone agreed on the date, location and agenda for your next meeting. Yet, when the day of the meeting arrives, two key programming board members have had “things come up” and those members who do show up are late, distracted by their phones, and unprepared to engage. Feeling your blood pressure starting to rise because this has slowly become the norm for your meetings, you begin to wonder why you even bother to set them up. Determined to not quit right in the middle of the meeting, how are you going to have the strength to lead it and keep the organization moving forward? The answer is grit. I’d like to define grit for you, share its benefits, and offer suggestions for using grit to accomplish your goals.

    Imagine you are a 23-year-old veteran returning to civilian life for the first time in four years. You’ve seen war, and you may have even seen some of your closest friends die. Now, you’re returning to attend a university, to make a better life for yourself and your family, where you do not know anyone and feel like you’re making this transition alone. You want to get involved on campus, but you’re slightly overwhelmed by the sheer number of clubs and organizations. The student organizations that are inviting you to events do not seem veteran friendly and, when you attend, you wonder why you did and leave early to go home and spend time with your family.

    The future classes of college graduates are expected to change careers and/or professions up to 15 times during their working years. As technology continues to grow and liberal arts education continues to be sought after, institutions of higher education must be more intentional about how academic affairs and student affairs partner in the delivery of student services. In "Robot Proof: Higher Education in the Age of Artificial Intelligence," Joseph Aoun, author and President of Northeastern University, provides insights on the importance and necessity of these partners in the evolution of higher education. During this webinar we’ll review what Aoun calls the new literacies, where higher education needs to adapt to better service our students and gain a deeper understanding of why the work we do in student affairs is important.

    Diversity and inclusion are important aspects of campus activities. Even so, it can seem challenging to develop a strategy for incorporating diversity and inclusion into your daily practice. NACA® Competencies for Diversity and Inclusion provide a guideline to make planning and implementing initiatives more manageable. Because campus activities professionals are so passionate about the students we serve, it is no surprise that our efforts are primarily focused on students. Whether a new campus activities professional, a seasoned professional, or somewhere in between, it is equally as important that we are intentional about taking time to focus on our own professional development – not only so we can serve students better, but also so we can advance our careers and the profession. Attendees will be introduced to the new Competencies for Campus Activities Professionals developed by the Education Advisory Group and will reflect on ways they can utilize the competencies for professional development.

    I believe one of the greatest interactions campus activities professionals can have with students is when we advise them. I’m sure we’ve all had that moment – when a student has a breakthrough and you know all those one-on-ones were not in vain. As advisors, we not only bear the burden of implementing policy, we’re tasked with helping students better understand their own skill sets, leadership styles and, many times, their own identities. How we advise students plays a key role in their development and creating positive experiences throughout their college careers.
