This presentation will cover critical factors, both external and internal, related to creating avenues for success of minority males in higher education. Included are strategies for measuring and increasing institutional readiness and capacity, as well as how to effectively engage minority males into the campus climate. Additional discussions will focus on creating faculty and staff involvement in minority male initiatives. The presenters will also discuss how to effectively strengthen the education pipeline for minority males, including policy implications. >

Effective Strategies To Help Faculty Achieve New Semester Goals & Improve Their Teaching
Complimentary Webinar

On-Demand Training
Do you have big plans for next semester? Like New Year’s resolutions, plans for changes and improvements faculty want to make in a new semester are often discarded, ignored, or rationalized away. Unfortunately, big intentions plus minimal action equals unachieved goals. Perhaps you know people who have started with a list of goals only to lose heart and revert to old habits. They had hoped to improve one or more areas of their classrooms—and did not.

The quality of our relationships affects our lives in many ways, including our self-esteem, our ability to handle stress, and our academic and work-related productivity. Many students enter into romantic relationships during the college years. The beginning of these relationships can be exhilarating and exciting. As these relationships progress, however, they require effort to maintain as well as constant re-evaluation. Healthy relationships require good communication and cooperation. Often, especially with college students who lack experience in dealing with the demands of romantic relationships, problems arise.

A recent report from Campus Pride entitled 2010: The State of Higher Education for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People sheds light on the safety situation for LGBTQ students on campus. Only 7 percent of colleges have resources available for this population despite the fact that we know having a visible and identifiable LGBTQ community with administrative support is key to reducing bullying and violence against these students on campus.

Consistency & Effectiveness
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, July 31 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
This session will provide an overview of how two-year colleges in Arkansas recently developed common learning outcomes for student success courses. Intended to provide a forum for faculty from across the state to discuss the critical needs of students as they matriculate through their first year at a community college, this effort is making some important statements; most notably, that a consistent, high-impact pathway of success during the first year of college is more important than we ever knew.

How To Design and Build A One Stop Shop For Student Services: Recommendations, Resources and Models For Success
How To Design & Build A One Stop Shop For Student Services: Recommendations, Resources & Models For Success
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, July 31 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
Designing an environment that is conducive to streamlined student services and promotes student success is a critical objective for many colleges and universities. Today’s higher education leaders and administrators involved in student service delivery need to consider which physical space needs are important when remodeling a new space, redesigning an existing space, or building an entirely new facility. Developing an integrated student services model, also known as the “One Stop Shop,” can help institutions deliver seamless, professional services in many areas including registration, financial aid, billing, payment, and housing. While great focus has been placed on developing virtual spaces with integrated online self-services for students, thoughtful design of the physical environment is just as important when creating spaces conducive to successful interactions with students.

When Social Media & Title IX Collide: What Colleges Need To Know About Gossip Sites, Free Speech & Proactive Policies
When Social Media & Title IX Collide: What Colleges Need To Know About Gossip Sites, Free Speech & Proactive Policies
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, August 5 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
Social media and its effects are a reality for every college student. Unfortunately, social media is not always used for the common good. When abused for the purpose of spreading rumors, gossip, and hateful language across campus, student conduct officers, counselors, and student affairs administrators are faced with a wide array of serious challenges. Despite the fall of the behemoth Juicy Campus, students continue to post pictures and messages on a variety of sites such as College Wall of Shame, CollegiateACB, Campus Gossip, and Little Gossip. Where is the line between free speech and threatening, slanderous language? When is it a community disruption? What are the Title IX considerations?

How to Provide A Unique And Effective Orientation For Your Student Veterans
How to Provide A Unique And Effective Orientation For Your Student Veterans
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, August 5 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
The vast majority of incoming college students are between 18 and 20 yrs old. Because of this, most campuses have created an orientation that is geared towards this demographic. Student veterans have been through a much more comprehensive orientation than a campus can ever provide. These students need and deserve an orientation that takes into account their experiences, sacrifices, and unique needs. >

Therapy Vs. Comfort Animals On Campus:  How To Implement ADAA Compliant Policies
Therapy Vs. Comfort Animals On Campus: How To Implement ADAA Compliant Policies
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, August 6 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
Therapy animals are present on campus more and more, in large part due to court rulings allowing individuals to have animals on campus. In addition, there has been an increase in the number of trained therapy animals used specifically for veterans and students with traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or anxiety. As permissions change and populations increase, where do we find the intersection of counseling services, the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility (ADAA) guidelines, and disability services on campus? Further, what do we need to know about the important differences between therapy, companion, service, and working animal?

Flexible Date
Tuesday, August 6 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern) & Thursday, October 9 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
Never has there been a more critical time for colleges than now. As we reinvent ourselves, realign priorities, evaluate the impact of state and federal legislation, manage changing demographics, and control and leverage technology, future student services administrators will need a significantly modified and inventive “tool kit.” By providing them with resources and a more universally designed approach to anticipating needs and developing requisite services, we will see great success in the evolution of student services.

Using Case Management To Support Campus Safety: Policy Development, Reporting Structures & Best Practices
Using Case Management To Support Campus Safety: Policy Development, Reporting Structures & Best Practices
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, August 7 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
Since 2000, the number of case managers on college campuses throughout the United States has steadily increased. Following the tragedies at Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University in 2008, a substantial boom in this profession occurred. Case management is a solution-focused approach to individual and community-wide campus concerns. By incorporating the multiple support sources and voices found in a college environment, this comprehensive management tool has wide-ranging potential for positive results. In the best circumstances, case managers are focused on teaching students how to utilize appropriate resources and develop better coping and self-care skills, while allowing for transparent monitoring of a student’s overall progress.

Comprehensive Student Advising: An Integrated College-Wide Approach To Facilitating Student Success
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, August 7 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
This webinar will focus on the holistic case-management approach to student advisement utilizing cross-divisional strategies and resources to ensure student engagement. The session will include models that are being utilized by colleges beginning to rethink their advising models. We will take a close look at one college’s journey in developing a five-pronged approach to student advising that connects every student to the college through a faculty member, advisor, success coach, mentor, or counselor. Participants will leave with clear strategies to establish college-wide responsibility for student advisement including Faculty Advising, Beacon Mentoring, First-Time-In-College Management, and At-Risk Counseling. The session would not be complete without sharing how Student Affairs can utilize existing tools to evaluate the success of their advising model(s).

Institutional Pride and Its Effects On Retention and Persistence
Institutional Pride & Its Effects On Retention & Persistence
Complimentary Webinar

Friday, August 8 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
When you think of school spirit on a college campus, any number of vivid images come to mind—an electric pep rally, a colorful homecoming parade, a crowded football game, an impassioned student rally. Exhibitions of school spirit take many forms and are often very positive experiences for the student body. These moments offer powerful opportunities for both students and staff to connect over their love for their school. This in turn creates loyal partnerships, a strong determinant of retention and persistence.

Tuesday, August 12 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
William E. Sedlacek—one of the nation's leading authorities on the topic of noncognitive assessment—challenges the use of the SAT and other standardized tests as the sole assessment tool for college and university admissions. In his book, Beyond the Big Test, Sedlacek presents a noncognitive assessment method that can be used in concert with the standardized tests. This assessment measures what students know by evaluating what they can do and how they deal with a wide range of problems in different contexts. Beyond the Big Test is filled with examples of assessment tools and illustrative case studies that clearly show how educators have used this innovative method to:

Wednesday, August 13 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
Many colleges and universities train upper-level students to mentor peers in a variety of capacities including tutors, academic advisors, resident assistants, instructors/assistants, orientation leaders, and more. This model often proves valuable for both students and the institution, providing student mentors a rich leadership experience, student mentees a strong peer connection, and schools with excellent staff. It is a win-win situation for all and when you consider the cost savings for a college to employ peer mentors, you cannot ignore this productive model.

Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, August 14 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)
The nationwide conversation about tuition costs and the true value of a college education grows every day, as institutions of higher education are asked to defend the product they offer students. This can be a difficult challenge, especially considering the wide variety of types and missions of higher education institutions. How can colleges show the value they create for their students and, more importantly, how do they measure and improve their value proposition so that students remain engaged and enrollment remains stable?

Early Alert & Student Retention: Assessing Need, Development & Outcomes
Early Alert & Student Retention: Assessing Need, Development & Outcomes
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, August 14 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
This webinar can be purchased individually for $345 or part of the 2-Part Webinar Series Package for $545.

Early intervention is critical to campus retention efforts. Early alert systems offer institutions systematic approaches to identifying and intervening with students exhibiting at-risk behaviors before the behaviors reach the acute stage. Many of these systems rely on a common format for student referral to a central receiving point. Systems at larger institutions use web-based technology to allow for a scalable approach to at-risk intervention. This presentation describes the development, implementation, and assessment of a web-based, fully integrated early alert referral system at a large, public university in the Southwest.

A student shows up at your front desk yelling, crying, upset, frustrated, tearful, angry, overwhelmed, pushy, aggravated, annoyed, demanding, obnoxious, smelly, drunk, disoriented. What do you do? Front office staff, like soldiers on the front lines of battle, is often placed in situations where they are nose-to-nose with students, faculty, and staff who are not at their best. They are asked to create a warm, caring, customer-service focused place for students, faculty, and staff to have their questions answered.

Hazing On Campus: Prevention Research, Strategies & Programming
Hazing On Campus: Prevention Research, Strategies & Programming
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, August 20 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)
Hazing is a pervasive problem in colleges and universities across the country. The National Study on Student Hazing revealed that more than half of all students who join teams or student organizations experience at least one hazing event. Preventing hazing is challenging since most students and many adults think of hazing as a problem that belongs exclusively to fraternities and sororities. Further, hazing is often viewed as a silly and harmless prank that can be fun, but as we know, it can have serious and even dangerous consequences.

7 Common Title IX Mistakes: How To Train Faculty On Sexual Harassment Compliance

Registration Fee: $345.00

Flexible Date
Thursday, August 21 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern) & Friday, September 26 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)

This program will focus on seven common missteps in relation to Title IX and a critical campus constituency – the faculty. Title IX and sexual violence on college and university campuses have gained heightened prominence since the release of the April 4, 2011 “Dear Colleague Letter,” coupled with heightened federal enforcement and recent federal legislation. Over the last few years, institutions have focused largely on updating and adjusting student-based policies, procedures, and trainings. Higher education has also dedicated time and resources to training the administrators and staff who uphold and implement these policies and procedures. The faculty component of Title IX is, however, key to compliance.

Since October 2001, more than 2.3 million soldiers have been deployed to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of these, approximately 1.4 million have left active duty and began their transition to civilian life. They are engaged in getting an education and new jobs. Many of these new veterans face psychological difficulties and readjustment issues that are the invisible wounds of war. The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs estimates that approximately 51 percent of returning soldiers sought help for a mental health problem, usually Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

How To Develop & Implement A Summer Bridge Program For First-Generation College Students
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, September 10 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
In these difficult economic times of budget cuts and limited resources, determining best practices for making the most of existing assets while continuing to serve students effectively is critical. At-risk groups of students present unique issues and as such, addressing budgetary issues becomes even more important. When looking at the needs of first-generation college-goers, institutions must understand the variety of challenges these students experience as they enter and move through higher education. In fact, much of the existing research indicates that students whose parents did not attend college are more likely than their non first-generation counterparts to be less academically prepared for college, to have less knowledge of how to apply for college and for financial assistance, and to have more difficulty in acclimating themselves to college once they enroll (Tym, et al., 2005). As such, educational institutions must provide students with specific types of resources and support to ensure that they move into and through college successfully, even during times of budget cuts.

Reflective Judgment: Teaching Students To Think Critically In A Time Of Information Overload
Registration Fee: $345.00

Friday, September 12 ~ 1:00 (Eastern)
Each day, Google users perform more than 5.1 billion searches. Wikipedia claims over 30 million articles in 286 languages. Today’s students have greater access to information than ever before. As Keeling (2004) articulated in Learning Reconsidered: A Campus-Wide Focus on the Student Experience, “…knowledge is no longer a scarce – or stable – commodity. (It) is changing so rapidly that specific information may become obsolete before a student graduates and has the opportunity to apply it.”

First-Year Students & Libraries: Assessing The Impact Of Information Literacy
First-Year Students & Libraries: Assessing The Impact Of Information Literacy
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, September 16 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
The North Lake College Library (NLCL) is known for its innovative approach to library use in the classroom. This past year, the library took its instruction a step further. As part of EDUC 1300, a class aimed at allowing first-year college students to gain a strong footing in the academic world, the library incorporated information literacy components into normal classroom instruction. While partnering with the EDUC instructor, the academic librarians combine online and database-driven resources, information regarding print and non-print research, as well as pathways into transfer and employment as part of the course curriculum. Careful emphasis is placed on the difference between high school “reports” and college “research” papers, and the librarian and instructor are charged with educating the first-year student on what is expected from them as college students. At the end of the course, the students are assessed on what they learned and also how they can use the knowledge and skills in further endeavors. Finally, the success of these students is measured against that of students in subsequent English classes that did not have the learning frameworks course.

Adult Learners:  Creating A Comprehensive Support Program To Address Needs and Increase Retention
Adult Learners: Creating A Comprehensive Support Program To Address Needs & Increase Retention
Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, September 17 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
Adult learners over 25-years-old now make up 40 percent of all students attending community colleges in the United States. Because they are open access, provide accelerated certificate programs, focus on basic skills, and have extensive vocational curriculums, community colleges are often the best choice for adult students. As this population increases, community colleges must create new and innovative approaches that address specific needs to support adult student enrollment, build strategies that improve their persistence and achievement rates, and lessen institutional barriers that prevent successful outcomes.

Intrusive Academic Advising: An Effective Strategy To Increase Student Success
Intrusive Academic Advising: An Effective Strategy To Increase Student Success
Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, September 18 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
The Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction Surveys find academic advising to be among students’ top priorities. Students in public universities identify advising as their number one concern. For students in private college, it is their number two concern and for community college students, it stands at number three. Research from the National Surveys of Student Engagement (NSSE) and the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) conclude that the more interaction students have with faculty and staff, the more likely they are to learn effectively and persist toward achievement of their educational goals. These findings have led an increasing number of colleges and universities to implement intrusive, proactive, or invitational academic advising as a central element in their efforts to increase student engagement, persistence, and success. This advising approach means that campuses—through instructional faculty, academic advisors, counselors, and programs—take the initiative to reach out to students to provide advice, support, referral, and assistance, rather than waiting for students to seek help.

Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, September 17 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)

“If only my students were motivated to learn!” Perhaps you have heard that lament or something similar. Sometimes the discussion devolves into a search for “techniques” to move our students from the edges of sleep to the edges of their seats. It can be a slippery slope. Technique without connection, without meaning, and without understanding will not help us—or our students.

Thursday, October 2 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
The ultimate goal of any institution of higher learning should be the success of its students, however, too often colleges do not do enough to meet this objective. In particular, the importance of assessing first-time college students is frequently miscommunicated and/or misunderstood. How can we better prepare students for what is expected of them in college? How can we help ensure that they are ready for successful and useful assessment testing?

With the Obama Administration’s passage of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative, the United States has begun to pave the way for many undocumented students to pursue college without the threat of deportation. Many universities are now seeing an influx of applications among this special population. With 65,000 undocumented students graduating from U.S. high schools each year, applications are sure to increase as states begin to lower tuition costs and offer financial aid to these students. What do you need to know about policies, on both the local and national levels, in order to best serve and welcome students from this growing population?

Investigating The Drunken Hook-Up: Policy Development Concerning Sexual Assault, Incapacitation & Risk Management
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, October 7 ~ 1:00-2:30pm (Eastern)
The pressure is on college campuses to get tough on sexual violence. However, it is now more important to get policy right than it is to get tough. Campuses are feeling the heat in the form of the first report of the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault, which encouraged men to respect women. This took the form of a highly publicized public service announcement featuring Benicio Del Toro, Dulé Hill, Steve Carrell, Daniel Craig, Seth Meyers, Vice President Biden, and President Obama. Additionally, the Office for Civil Rights released 53 more pages on how to comply with Title IX, and yet, Brett Sokolow, president and CEO of The NCHERM Group, thinks many campuses can do better when dealing with drunken hook-ups between students.

Registration Fee: $345.00

Wednesday, October 22 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
In today’s world of blurred lines of communication, students often approach faculty with difficult conversations that go beyond the content area of study. This is a challenging situation for both faculty and student. Conversations can fall into a wide range of topics and they often cause stress and unforeseen challenges for faculty struggling with balance and finding the appropriate response. A student may be having a mental health crisis, panic around grades, angry outbursts, or social problems that extend beyond the classroom door.

Pop and Sizzle! How To Create and Deliver A Dynamic Presentation
Pop & Sizzle! How To Create & Deliver A Dynamic Presentation
Complimentary Webinar

On-Demand Training
Delivering a dynamic presentation does not have to be a mystery. First and foremost, a presentation is never about the speaker. It is always about the audience members. The difference between a miserable presentation and a powerful, engaging program comes down to preparation and respect. When presenters take time to know their audience, their mission, and their topic, they show respect for the people in front of them.
