  • Members: Schools, National Associates, Regional Associates
    Regions: All
    Target Audience: Faculty, Graduate Student, Professional Staff, Undergraduate Student
    Member of the Journal of Campus Activities Practice and Scholarship (JCAPS) Advisory Board   The purpose of the Journal of Campus Activities Practice and Scholarship (JCAPS) is to provide a forum for current discourse on issues pertinent to campus activities. JCAPS fills a void found in existing peer-reviewed outlet by providing space for current empirical research, along with other forms of scholarship, related to campus activities. The primary focus of JCAPS is on practice in campus activities, and to that end, each submission will be scrutinized for authors clearly addressing implications for practice, along with directions for further research.   As a national peer-reviewed journal, JCAPS represents a space with an intent to not only advance scholarship in campus activities, but to develop scholars and scholar-practitioners in campus activities. Campus activities practice is specifically defined as work related to student organizations and the training, development and learning of the members and leaders, as well as student organization advising; programming (and issues related to programming such as risk, budgets, inclusion), programming boards, and the effects of programming on students and campuses; and issues of diversity, inclusion, and social justice across student activities practice.   In order to advance scholarship along these themes of student activities practice, JCAPS would seek submissions of the following types: research articles, including examples of application of theory to practice; assessment projects rooted in practice; graduate student research/research in brief; research book reviews; and, reviews of different methodologies.   The Advisory Board will be comprised of five-seven professionals with the following experience:   ·         Individuals with prior experience as editors/associate editors/section editors of other peer reviewed journals, and who also have experience as published scholars. ·         Representatives from the Board, the National Office, and the Research & Scholarship Group, as well as a faculty member from a preparation program. ·         A Professional Intern. (This position is designed to give a campus activities professional without journal experience a chance to be exposed to scholarly activity)

    Helping Our Student Leaders to Be Effective in Navigating Power and Influence to Achieve Their Goals and Objectives
    Category: Webinars

  • Members: Schools
    Regions: All
    Target Audience: Faculty, Graduate Student, Professional Staff
    Our experiences on our own campuses likely validate the findings of recent editions of the UCLA Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) Survey that today’s college students are the most likely to protest in half a century. Students are using their voices and, indeed, their power, to be part of and influence the institutional conversation on important issues. Based on the presenter’s doctoral dissertation research on how student leaders navigate power and influence to achieve their goals and objectives, this session is an opportunity to learn how we as student affairs professionals can help student leaders to do so in the most effective way possible. Through this webinar, participants will be able to: 1) identify why student power and influence are important to our students and our institutions, 2) describe how student leaders navigate power and influence to achieve their goals and objectives, and 3) employ methods to help student leaders navigate power and influence in the most effective way possible. The webinar will use a combination of presentation to share the findings and recommendations of the research and discussion to encourage participants to share their reflections on the research and their own experiences related to the topic.
