NASPA REGION VI EVENTS AT THE 2018 NASPA ANNUAL CONFERENCE
NASPA Region VI is excited to offer the following events for the attendees of the 2018 NASPA Annual Conference in Philadelphia!
Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement Profiles
We’re asking some of the people you might encounter at the Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement meeting in Anaheim, California including the event planners and coordinators, presenters, faculty, staff, administrators, and students to answer a few questions about themselves and their experiences
Planning for Positive and Peaceful Campus Demonstrations
The heart of any rally is the cause or issue, and often the cause has had a personal and emotional effect on students. While some demonstration participants intend to raise awareness, educate and advocate for change, others may simply be angry, hurt, or feel they are in an “us vs. them” situation. Students may feel victimized or marginalized by responses to the protest or issue, especially if the responses come from campus staff, faculty or other students. Providing campus/off-campus resources for having difficult conversations and continued advocacy is important for students’ civic engagement, and also providing resources for students’ mental and physical health may provide critically needed support for these students in crisis.
Lend your voice to something bigger than yourself
The 2018 Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement Meeting (CLDE18), being held June 6-9, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Orange County, in Anaheim, California, offers an opportunity for student affairs professionals, faculty, community partners, and students, to participate in discourse around the fundamentals of democracy and gain inspiration from our featured speakers to take back to your campus community. #CLDE18 will rejuvenate your passion for activating your students to be the change they want to see in the world.
