Webinar: Strategies and Proven Methods for Drawing Students Back to Campus in Safe Ways

Join colleagues from across the nation to discuss engaging ways to bring students back to campus – both in-person and online. The pandemic compelled extensive change to the higher education experience, and with change comes uncertainty. Change also bestows opportunity, which the panel will explore in this one-hour discussion. Panelists will share tactics they’ve deployed in recent months to boost enrollment, ranging from creating social hotspots like “library on the lawn,” to deploying new safety measures, and the role technology plays in the contemporary environment. Attendees will walk away with actionable, innovative strategies to help drive enrollment on their campus.

Inter-Association Well-Being Revised Definition

Begun in 2018, as an outcome of "Health and Well‑being in Higher Education: A Commitment to Student Success," the definition was created with the intent of providing a cohesive and actionable definition of well-being specific to higher education settings. First published in May 2020, the definition has now been updated to reflect ongoing community feedback: greater specificity in civic well-being; specific references to anti-racism and other basic human rights; and an expanded list of source references. Join us to hear more about the definition's evolution and how we hope it will further enable us to continue thinking collaboratively and critically about well-being in higher education. Visit www.nirsa.org/hands-in to view the definition.

This program is brought to you buy AASHE, ACCA, ACHA, ACPA, ACUHO-I, ACUI, AUCCCD, AUCCCO, CUPA-HR, NACAS, BHAC, NACA, NASPA, NIRSA, & NODA. Attendance is capped at 500 participants, so please register early!
