2020 NASPA Virtual Highlights

Workshop Supporting the Profession

NASPA is proud to offer 2020 NASPA Virtual Highlights to connect our community with keynote speakers, share expertise from featured educational session presenters, and gather virtually for the milestones of the NASPA Annual Business Meeting and other community meetings to enable our Association to both reflect and move forward, even through uncertain times. All Virtual Highlights will be both live-streamed as well as recorded and shared, and participation is free and open to all. 

The community development and collective rejuvenation that characterizes the NASPA Annual Conference is regrettably unavailable to us this year—for only the second time in over a century. We recognize that most of our institutions remain in a rapidly-evolving state of crisis management and preparation for an unclear future. Our 2020 NASPA Virtual Highlights were developed to provide the NASPA family an opportunity to engage with exceptional learning and virtual community building, both live and OnDemand, in a format that is open to all. We hope you will join us. 

Please note: Registration for each event and meeting on the schedule is included in its description. All times are in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). If you encounter any difficulties with getting signed up, please contact office@naspa.org. All events and meetings will be recorded and made available following the live-streamed programming.

In this session, presenters from association and campus-based organizations will share concrete practices that they have employed with their own teams, including the impact that such approaches have on the overall connectedness, motivation, and well-being of their team members.

SA Unscripted: “Why Are They Leaving?”—Are Professionals Leaving the Field More Than Ever Before?

Details

Presenters:

  • Angela Batista, Vice President for Student Affairs, Champlain College and NASPA Board Chair-Elect
  • Raja Gopal Bhattar, Consultant and Author

There seems to be a broad narrative and conversations within our profession that SA pros are leaving the field in unprecedented numbers, especially new professionals and professionals who are part of historically underrepresented groups. Do we have data that supports this? Is this “exodus” just a by-product of a changing generation that is more apt to go through multiple career changes? Or are there systemic challenges that we need to examine that might be contributing to this phenomenon?

Future-proof: Reimagining Student Affairs for Online Learners

Details

Presenters:

  • Moderator: Dave Jarrat, Senior Vice President, Strategic Engagement & Growth, Inside Track
  • Allie Goldstein, Assistant Professor, Pennsylvania State University, University Park
  • MJ Bishop, Associate Vice Chancellor and Director for Academic Innovation, University System of Maryland
  • Saskia Knight,Executive Vice Chancellor for Enrollment and Student Affairs, Brandman University
  • Jane Dané, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management, Old Dominion University

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was already a significant gap in student affairs knowledge and practice around online learners relative to residential students. Yes, there were examples of excellence in online student affairs, but they were usually siloed within subdivisions of the institution. Also, there is a depth to traditional student affairs that has never been fully replicated online. 

To address this, NASPA joined forces with UPCEA, InsideTrack, and other leading higher education organizations to drive national dialog and action on advancing inclusion in student support, beginning with a whitepaper they intended to release at the NASPA Annual Conference entitled, Future-Proof: Reimagining Student Affairs for Modern Learners.

In the past few weeks, not only has the NASPA Annual Conference and nearly every conference been moved online, but online learners have moved from being a significant and growing sub-population to being essentially the only student population in higher ed.  Now, more than ever is the time for the online learning, students affairs and greater higher ed community to come together to ensure that all of our students -- those voluntarily and involuntarily online -- get the support they need.

Join us for a lively discussion driven by insights from leaders across the higher education spectrum and share your views on what our students need in this moment and how we can better support them going forward.

Addressing Equity Gaps by Supporting Student Basic Needs Security

Details

Presenter:

  • Rashida Crutchfield, Associate Professor, School of Social Work, California State University, Long Beach

Higher education is becoming acutely aware of basic needs insecurity among students. Though a primary mission of higher education is student success, many among our student populations are contending with homelessness and hunger as they strive toward graduation. Further, it has become clear that these social problems disproportionately impact students from marginalized populations. Heightened in this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, students who experience basic needs insecurity are in need of support. In an effort to truly address academic, economic, and social equity gaps for marginalized students, campus community leaders must have a clear understanding of the responsibilities and challenges their students might be managing outside of the classroom while learning how to support them despite the closures in our educational environments. The presenter will explore the prevalence and impact of basics needs insecurity on our campuses and promising practices to address student needs. The presenter and attendees will also consider emerging strategies to support our students as our campuses are closed.

Leveraging Best Practices in Supporting and Engaging Online during Campus Closures

Details

Presenters:

  • Jaimie Hoffman, Vice President for Student Affairs, Noodle Partners
  • James McGhee, Assistant Dean of Students, Randolph-Macon College
  • Alicia Battle, Assistant Professor and Director of Online Master of Public Health Program, Tulane University


As campuses abruptly close their doors and move instruction online to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we need to think about, and plan for, supporting and engaging students online. To foster practices that are effective for students studying online, campuses may need to adjust the ways in which they have delivered support services and student engagement activities to onground students in the past. Leveraging best practices in supporting online students, this session will give campus student affairs personnel, like you, an idea of where to start when working with students who are no longer on the physical campus. We present some of the key adjustments that you may want to make, acknowledging that the lift is quite heavy, and we provide ideas for additional enhancement if you have the bandwidth. We first present thoughts on how to make ground-based student support services available to students learning remotely and then offer suggestions on thinking through student development and engagement services. We also acknowledge that we do not have all of the answers for this unique circumstance thus, we will pause throughout the presentation to engage with you about your experiences and ideas.

Technology and Innovative Strategies to Address Campus Mental Health Resources Demand

Details

Presenters:

  • Nathaan Demers, Psy.D., Vice President and Director of Clinical Programs, Grit Digital Health
  • Marcelle Hayashida, Ph.D., Associate Vice-Chancellor, University of California, Irvine
  • Meladee Garst, Ph.D., ssistant Director and Director of Student Educational Programming and Outreach, Counseling Center, University of California, Irvine

Campus counseling center personnel have repeatedly stated that the level of acuity in campus counseling centers has increased. As students come in with an increased level of needs, past histories of psychiatric hospitalizations, and previous use of psychotropic medications, campuses have had to adjust offerings and provide new kinds of treatment, such as single session modalities and more groups to handle the load. Campuses have also developed robust coaching programs that serve as an intervention when clinical intervention is not warranted. Additionally, campuses have introduced new app or website technologies to students, who have often had to wait weeks for therapy and who could benefit from online psychoeducation while they wait or in lieu of therapy. This presentation will provide an opportunity for the audience to learn about new and innovative ways of addressing the campus mental health crisis, from promising prevention programs that address peer and social support, to psychoeducation, to innovative treatment modalities tailored to the Generation Z student. The presentation will address a variety of approaches for small, medium, and large institutions, and will provide tips on providing care with limited resources.

Emily Bouck West, Deputy Executive Director, Higher Learning Advocates
Erica Cuevas, Senior Policy Manager, Jobs for the Future
Madeline St. Amour, Reporter, Inside Higher Ed
Kyle Southern, Policy and Advocacy Director for Higher Education and Workforce, Young Invincibles


Today's students are not the pop culture archetype of a college student seen in the movies. They are older, more diverse, attend school part-time, and have to balance work, family, and classes. Given the shift in student demographics, the presenters will highlight how diverse organizations have come together to advocate for federal policies that align the needs of today's students with their changing postsecondary experience. The presenters will outline needed policy reforms as well as tactics that practitioners can employ to elevate the stories of today's students with policymakers.

Dismantling Hazing in Greek-Letter Organizations: Effective Practices for Prevention, Response, and Campus Engagement

Details

Presenters

  • Jason L. Meriwhether, VIce President of Enrollment Management, Humboldt State University
  • Elizabeth Allan, Professor and Program Coordinator of the Higher Education Program, University of Maine
  • Danielle Woody, Assistant Diretor, Office of Student Conduct and Civility Education, Towson University
  • Aaron Hart, Vice President for Student Affairs, University of Houston - Clear Lake
  • Seuth Chaleunphonh, Dean of Student Life Indiana University Southeast
  • Rasheed Ali Cromwell, President, The Harbor Institute

More than half of college students are hazed in the process of joining student organizations, while 7 out of every 10 students who pledge or rush a fraternity or sorority experience some form of hazing or violence. In recent years, numerous student deaths caused by hazing have called into question the value of these organizations, while college leaders seek solutions that keep students safe. This engaging session offers practical strategies to address the complexities of hazing culture in varying contexts. Each co-presenter focuses on the nuanced elements of hazing within sorority and fraternity subcultures and explores the hidden harms inside these secretive and tradition-laden systems. Recommendations from this workshop provide readers with new educative models and tools to mitigate the impact of “tradition” as it competes with the value for life within Greek-letter organizations with one ultimate goal: to save the lives of students.
