In your opinion, what should be the most important items on the Board of Directors agenda that impact campus engagement over the next five years?

"I feel that one of the most important agenda items that the Board of Directors should be focusing on the next five years is how we leverage technology and networking to provide our school members the opportunity to see the services that are available to them provided by our associate and affiliate members. The students who are making many of the programming decisions at our member schools are primarily members of Generation Z, who like to have information available to them when and where they want to access this. NACA® 24/7 is a step toward doing this, but I feel the BOD has a duty to our member groups to meet them where they are in accessing information."

Saville Harris

Leadership development – this is the thread that has woven itself throughout my professional life since I was an undergraduate. Often (especially as an undergrad) my knowledge has been based on learning from mistakes. That has inspired a passion to help others learn so they don’t need to make those same mistakes. No matter the student affairs position I’ve held, I’ve determined a way to provide leadership development for others. When I decided to start my doctoral program, leadership development became the discipline I pursued. While I know I still have a lot to learn, sharing what I do know is my passion.

In your opinion, what should be the most important items on the Board of Directors agenda that impact campus engagement over the next five years?

"Over the next five years, I believe the Board of Directors should focus on the following items: 1. Strategic planning for the Association. We are clearly in the middle of significant change that is manifested through what we’re seeing at NACA® Live. As the current strategic plan goes through 2020, we need to report back to the Association on our results and begin the process for the next five years.  2. Professional development for members. I believe that some of the changes made for NACA® Live show deeper support for staff members and their professional development. We need to continue to provide these opportunities at both national and regional events framed in our competencies. The Board would be instrumental to setting up a three-to-five-year plan for professional development opportunities that weaves in research and publication opportunities for members."

LaShaundra Randolph

Metropolitan Community College-Penn Valley (MO)
Number of years as a NACA Member: 7

Bill Harcleroad

LaShaundra Randolph is coordinator for Campus Life and Leadership at Metropolitan Community College-Penn Valley (MO). She previously served as coordinator for Student Activities and director of the Kangaroo Food Pantry, which was developed under her leadership. In the past, she served as a residence hall director at Stony Brook University (NY), where she also taught first-year orientation courses, and she has been a peer instructor for Sexual Assault Facts and Education (SAFE). In her spare time, she enjoys volunteering, mentoring, traveling, spending time with loved ones, and motivational speaking. She is an active member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.-Leavenworth Alumnae Chapter.

In your opinion, what should be the most important items on the Board of Directors agenda that impact campus engagement over the next five years?

"We are not the same association we were five or 10 years ago and the most important work we can do is to ensure we are current and trailblazing in our field. The board must advance the field by being mission-focused, unapologetically and confidently. Campus activities is always under the microscope because, quite often, when we're asked what we do, the answer is not just one singular response. The uniqueness of our field is what makes the Association soar, because it's for the field of campus activities. We have to adjust our story as the field advances and do so boldly. This work can succeed only if we listen to our members and ensure that we are adding value to their experience with an understanding that value will be defined differently depending on who you ask among our different membership groups."
