Break Out Session: The Level Up Program

A New Student Employee Training and Development Program – ABSTRACT  Learn the secrets to a groundbreaking student training and professional development program called “Leveling Up.” It’s an all-new career-readiness collaborative strategy for students that works. The program focuses on practical applied learning for students’ successful transition into the workplace with professionalism and confidence. You’ll learn what students need to transition to the workplace and what they value most in their jobs. With the “Leveling Up” program, students gain the competitive advantage they need—and administrators gain proven results they want.

What we’ve learned from video gamers about the incentive theory of motivation can be applied to creating a culture of career readiness that is fun (and games!) but effective. Best of all, this program can be deployed immediately with technology you are already using. Student Center & Event Services at the University of California, Irvine, is an auxiliary service of Student Affairs and is also one of the largest employers on campus with over 200 student employees. With student shifts beginning at 7:00 a.m. and nightshifts ending at 1:00 a.m., career staff looked for ways to improve on meaningful or engaging interactions with students. In an effort to build a more supportive work environment, staff turned to students for advice.  This collaboration led to the development of a scalable program that can be applied to small work groups of two or three employees to large work groups employing hundreds. It is a multi-pronged approach that combines easy-to-manage Student Affairs Learning Outcomes with organizational goals, a world-class approach to quality service, Taylor Hartman’s Color Code Personality Profiling system, StrengthsFinder 2.0, and much more.

This interactive, lecture-style presentation will give you the tools you need to start building your own student development and training program like a pro. You will leave knowing what students really want from their employers. During the presentation, attendees gain access to training videos, software programs, and literature that they can put into practice the moment they return to campus.

RELEVANCY  This presentation solves the problem facing so many Student Affairs professionals by answering the question of how to best prepare student employees for success now and in future professional settings. Because career staff is often balancing a busy workload with their desire to prepare students for future employment, a comprehensive program is needed that provides them with actionable steps and tangible takeaways that they can employ the moment they return to campus.  The presentation focuses on Student Learning and Development to address the concepts and principles of student development and learning theory.

Stacey Murren & Brian Petyo, University of California, Irvine

2:40 - 3:40 p.m.

Break Out Session: Developing a Collaborative Business Review with Strategic Partner

This presentation will foster an interactive discussion that will take participants through the process of understanding why many strategic partnership business reviews go wrong and how to develop a program to transform this critical tool to facilitate engagement towards achieving institutional goals via collaborative strategic partnerships. Participants will give examples of standard business review formats, asked for feedback and for personal examples from their institutions. We will then move from the standard to the re-imagined with an actionable, interactive discussion on building a strategic partnership business review program. Participants will give examples of what they consider to be strategic partnerships at their institutions and why. Moving from the signing of the contract to partnership management, how that transition lays the groundwork related to expectations of the partnership, and how to communicate value in the business review meeting. Now we move to the interactive discussion around building the business review, delivery and next steps with an example/ template that participants can take with them to utilize. This planned approach to building a program around strategic partner business reviews will expose hidden capabilities, strengthen key stakeholder buy-in and ensure alignment with institutional goals. Participants will leave this educational session with tools they can use to build a better and more collaborative business review program on their campus.

James Dwyer, Ken Pegram, Ashlie Singleton, Arizona State University

General Session: Keynote with Melanie Corey-Ferrini

About Melanie Corey-Ferrini:

Melanie Corey-Ferrini founded Dynamik in 2000 with a mission to connect the physical environment with the human experience.  Since then, Dynamik has focused on elevating dining, shopping, and gathering experiences.  Today these mixed-use environments are referred to as collaborative or multi-use experiences where facilities are maximized, along with human experiences and efficient use of space for all day parts.  Melanie has extensive experience in High Tech Campus dining and retail concepts which are leading drivers in campus dining and retail planning and design.

About Keynote:

Dining and Retail concepts are generators of activities, social gathering, respite and studying for students.  They are nodes of energy and connectors to other experiences on campus.  NACAS attendees will hear first-hand the successes and challenges in creating multi-use experiences that drive this energy and differentiate campuses.   Melanie’s passion for creating elevated Campus concepts, as well as, connecting experiences through data driven pre-planning is the focus of her presentation.  She will also explore current industry trends and topics, including: forecasting industry trends; designing for sustained growth; building a campus map and connecting experiences to insure maximum participation, and understanding why an annual “dream” check-in is important to maintain both a competitive advantage, as well as, align with facilities requirements.

Break Out Session: Dynamik Break Out

Following Melanie’s Key Note Speaker presentation, a hands-on workshop providing attendees with real world tasks to generate big ideas, define key focus areas on your campus, and start to connect experiences throughout a campus.

This workshop will dive into a snapshot of a pre-planning “Dream” phase of a project.  Melanie will guide attendees thru multiple experiences in which to view your campus.   Attendees will divide into groups and will draw, collage, group use provided data information, imagery, trends, and other experiential artifacts to create a “Dream Big” plan overlay onto Campus Maps samples.  The goal at the end of the workshop is to balance “what if – big ideas” with the “reality of budget and timelines”.   The intersections of data, patterns, blending experiences, and pushing boundaries is the objective of the workshop.

Break Out Session: Digital Federations the Key to Social Media Strategy

Auxillary Services Marketing Professionals face unique problems when developing social media strategy because of limited resources (time, people, and money), wide varieties of programs to communicate about, and the limited geography of the market segment. On top of that people use social media platforms in different ways and for different needs. A comprehensive strategy entails, and these are the critical points of the presentation:

• Encouraging collaboration — consolidating stakeholders toward a common goal.

• Identifying specific goals for specific channels — understanding how target markets use different social media platforms and tailoring goals to that end.

• Creating federations — centralized federations for passive communications and decentralized federations for active conversations.

Break Out Session: Building Confidence in Staff for Critical Incident Response

October 5 is a day that many at CU Boulder will remember and it was impactful for the staff of our student union. The student union staff had gone through the Active Harmer training and the adage of “it is not a matter of if, but when” came true when the building was evacuated due to the threat of an active harmer. Although we later learned we did not have an active harmer, the experience was real and became an impetus for us to delve deeper into our Critical Incident Plan and business continuity planning. In this session, we will share what we had in place prior to October 5, what we have implemented in the past 18 months, and where we are headed. We will discuss the importance of knowledge, training, and practice for all in a student union, not just one’s immediate staff, and will model ways to make this happen on your campus.

Break Out Session: Million Dollar Walk

Attending college is one the first big decisions a young person makes and it is likely one of the most significant financial commitments of their lifetime.

Explore what Sodexo’s International University Lifestyle Survey tells us about students’ expectations (hint: 43% of U.S. students said that look and feel of the campus was a significant factor in decision making) and join an an open discussion about how your campus’ physical environment can be leveraged to move from an impression that is “just ok” to one that promotes not only recruitment, but engagement and retention on your campus.

Break Out Session: Hosting High Profile Groups in Your Facilities

For multiple years, one of housing communities at UCI has hosted a high-profile professional sports team for their summer training camp. Although the campus as a whole had many areas to manage in a short period of time to bring this camp into fruition, housing the team for a six-week period was a major component of their program. In a community that had not housed a summer conference operation for many years, creating a new business model with upscale needs and services, all while maintaining normal operations for summer school students, provided a unique set of challenges. This program will provide an overall understanding of operational, logistical, and philosophical issues to take into consideration in working with a high-profile client that is outside regular business operations. Some of the areas of focus for discussion will be: modification of existing facilities; reinventing business practices; managing security & emergency response; managing publicity; creating solutions to special logistical needs; and continuing to meet regular operational needs while managing the needs of the team.

Break Out Session: Pathways to zero waste in Auxiliary Services

Auxiliary Services has a unique position to engage students in sustainability education, inspire solutions-focused perspectives, and build partnerships to cultivate a campus-wide commitment to global sustainability. The University of California system and UC Irvine have committed to reaching Zero Waste, or 90% diversion from landfill by 2020. In 2016, UCI reached 83% diversion, the highest rate in the system. Recycling, donation collection, and food waste composting in dining commons and residence halls are key aspects of our campus solid waste plan. Zero waste initiatives on campus are the result of strategic collaboration and teamwork both behind the scenes and via public education campaigns among UCI Facilities Management, Hospitality & Dining and Aramark, and Housing. Dining presenters will share about our waste-to-energy food waste compost program and the creation of the first daily user Zero Waste dining facilities in the UC system serving 36,000 meals a week. Housing presenters will share about the introduction of compost bins into the apartment and communal kitchens of UCI’s 6 residential communities serving 9,000 residents. Each presenter will share best practices for infrastructure planning as well as community building and student and staff engagement for sustainability literacy and behavior change.

These presenters worked along with dining commons management, Housing staff, and student representatives to collectively train over 300 professional and 300 student staff, conduct peer-to-peer waste minimization education, create student and employee engagement materials as well as learning outcome assessments, and conduct waste audits to achieve Zero Waste. Presenters will share lessons learned through both success and challenges.
