#CLDE18 OPENING PLENARY | CivEd Talks and Our CLDE Theory of Change
The 2018 Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement (CLDE18) meeting organized by the American Democracy Project (ADP), The Democracy Commitment (TDC) and NASPA LEAD Initiative, is continuing the conversation about our collective emergent Theory of Change adapted from elements of the 2012 A Crucible Moment report. We encourage participants to reflect on how together we can build campus cultures and contexts contribute to a more vibrant democracy, advance civic outcomes and pedagogies, and strategically institutionalize our work.
Which #NASPA18 Sessions Will You Be Attending? Here Are a Few to Consider!
It is almost time for the 2018 NASPA Annual Conference and, if you are attending, you may be wondering what sessions to attend. Chris Lewis, Dean of Student Affairs at Lansing Community College shares some of his choices as a person that has now been in a Senior Student Officer position for the last seven months, with new responsibilities to keep a keen eye on public policy. For someone that has not spent a lot of time incorporating public policy into day-to-day practices, this has been an adjustment, however, he knows that it impacts what he does and the educational experiences of the students that attend Lansing Community College.

Early Trends in 2018 State Legislation
Most state legislatures started their 2018 legislative session in January and while it’s still fairly early in the session to have a solid sense of trends across the country, this post by NASPA Director of Policy Research & Advocacy Teri Lyn Hinds provides an initial look at a few of the top issues NASPA’s Policy and Advocacy Team tracks: campus free speech, rights for trans individuals, and state-level immigration-related policies regarding sanctuary campuses or tuition and financial aid for undocumented immigrants. Some legislation introduced in 2017 is still under consideration in many states with biennial state legislative sessions, though this post will focus mostly on new legislation introduced in 2018 or that has been recently updated or acted on.
