About

The 2020 Institute will be the twelfth in its twenty-two-year history and will be held on Emerson College's urban campus in Boston. The Institute brings together vice presidents for student affairs and other senior-level leaders at small colleges and universities with enrollments of fewer than 5000 students for three days of learning and networking. An intentional component of this signature NASPA program is living and learning together on the host campus.

Topics featured during the 2020 Institute include:

  • Innovative strategies to address student mental health and wellness challenges
  • Promoting constructive dialogue in today's hyper-polarized campus environments
  • Presidential perspectives about challenges and opportunities for SCUs in today's turbulent contexts
  • Leading diverse, intergenerational staffs to excellence
  • New Title IX rules
  • Hot topics for small colleges and universities

We hope you'll choose to join us in June!

About M. Ben Hogan
In March 2016, the NASPA Small Colleges and Universities Division proposed that the NASPA Small Colleges and Universities Institute be renamed in honor of Michael “Ben” Hogan. The NASPA Board of Directors enthusiastically supported the proposal, and the Institute was renamed the NASPA M. Ben Hogan Small Colleges and Universities Institute. The 2018 institute, hosted by the University of Puget Sound, was the first that bore Ben's name.

Ben Hogan had a long and distinguished career in student affairs. Having spent time at Lycoming College in Pennsylvania and Springfield College in Massachusetts, among other places, Ben was a long-time student affairs administrator at small colleges. As the chairperson of the NASPA Small Colleges and Universities Network (predecessor to the current division), he worked tirelessly to advance the mission and purpose of the small college movement. He was instrumental in laying the groundwork for increased recognition, which resulted in small colleges and universities gaining a seat on the NASPA Board of Directors. Through this work, Ben championed the concept of a professional development experience specifically for small college professionals, and he served as the chairperson of the first NASPA Small Colleges and Universities Institute in 1998.

Environmental and Campus Initiatives Impacting Mental Health and Well-being on Campus

Details

Increasing numbers of students are seeking mental health services on campus, and this demand is outpacing our capacity within counseling centers. In many cases this results in long wait times and unavailability of some services.  In order to meet this demand it is imperative that we raise awareness of the mental health and well-being challenges of our students and identify solutions across campus.

During this session, the presenters will explore with attendees data on the current state of mental health on campuses, current clinical responses to the increasing demand for services, and innovative campus-wide initiatives designed to build a culture of prevention and early intervention. Participants will share initiatives on their campuses designed to promote positive mental health and well-being of our students.

The Continued Changing Landscape of Title IX Policies and Practices: What You Need to Know

Details

Presenter: Kathryn M. Nash, Partner, Lathrop GPM

The Title IX landscape continues to change. Since the Dear Colleague Letter in 2011 and subsequent guidance from the Office for Civil Rights and the Department of Education, colleges and universities have taken steps to ensure compliance. Any day now, the Department of Education will release its finalized adaptation of Title IX protocols, dictating how colleges handle sexual assault and harassment. This session will provide practical insight on how to comply with this adaptation and further review emerging practices Title IX. 

 

In this session, we will discuss the current adaptation and strive for the following outcomes:

  • Attendees will be able to describe the finalized adaptation of Title IX protocols.
  • Attendees will be able to compare and contrast the finalized adaptation of Title IX protocols with practices at their home institution.

Attendees will be able to discuss emerging practices in the Title IX landscape.

Harnessing the Power of Cross-Generational Working Teams

Details

Boomers, Generation Xers, Millennials, Gen Zs.
Managing across these generations and working side by side, each with different outlooks and values, has made it more of a challenge to keep everyone engaged, motivated and challenged. Senior student affairs officers have focused much attention on supporting the needs of students of various generations, but this session will provide an opportunity to inventory and consider the distinct needs, communication styles, motivations, perspectives and challenges of inter-generational staff teams, particularly as they relate to staff retention, burn out and activism and provide a framework to cultivate a thriving inter-generational team.

10:15 AM - 11:15 AM

Organic Discussions

Details

Organic discussions offer an opportunity for participants with interests in the same topic to explore that issue together. Over the course of the Institute, some topics will be placed in the “parking lot” for future discussion – including the possibility of follow-up sessions on major Institute programs or common issues like supervision and reorganization. Come to this session with an idea or two for in-depth conversation.
