Hear about the improvements they want to see made to the FinAid process. Meet the platform that delivers what students want: an easy, mobile, personalized experience.

Intern, Work-study student, Ambassador, Co-worker: Keys to managing student employees

Student employees are an integral part of many schools’ ability to meet goals and timelines and have become an important component of the labor force in higher education. Both student and school benefit from the opportunity to learn valuable work-place skills, to receive additional funding and to meet seasonal labor needs. These rewards also bring risks and other considerations unique to students who are also employees. In this session learn about best practices the presenters have used to manage student workers. Hear about key steps to recruit and select the most qualified students. Identify specific activities and motivation strategies you can take to set workplace and performance expectations. Understand the key similarities and differences between student and regular campus employees. Share your best practices and experiences as well.

Ethical Dilemmas in College Enrollment Management Practices:

The literature of Higher Education and Enrollment management is replete with competitive marketing strategies and the race for FTEs. Qualified students are rare commodities in limited supply and institutions position themselves more and more as denizens of humanitarian marketing. All Institutions sell an intangible product and their brand promise is measured in symbolic capital encased in the politics of ranking, service delivery, pricing, and communications. We are mostly non-profit but businesses nonetheless. What ethical considerations should guide our college admissions practices, are we counseling students or closing sales? Are we pushing the quest for knowledge and the habits of investigation? Is the bottom line driving our modus operandi? Are we pushing knowledge qua knowledge in the Gramsci’s sense of disinterested Knowledge and good sense? Are we flirting with a culture of distortions and miscommunications A.K.A. Bragging rights? These questions shall frame our exploration in this workshop

What is your role in recruiting and retaining students with disabilities?

Students with disabilities represented nearly 11 percent of all postsecondary students in 2008 (Higher Education, 2009). This is an increase from 9 percent in 2000 (Wolanin, & Steele, 2004). Along with the increase in the number of students with disabilities entering higher education comes an increasing responsibility for higher education professionals to understand the rights as well as the responsibilities of students with disabilities.

During this workshop, the following questions will be considered:
What is your role in recruiting and admitting students with disabilities? What questions can I ask a students with a disability? What do I do if a student discloses their disability? What is my role in balancing the needs of the institution with the rights of students with disabilities?

We will also explore questions and scenarios you have, allowing us to learn from each other.

Higher Education Trials & Tribulations

Have you ever thought you should write a book about what happened in your offices, because no one would believe it. You will be placed in groups and each group will be given several scenarios that have come across our desks as Higher Ed professionals from real life situations to discuss. As a group you will have five minutes to discuss each scenario which will include “Can you believe it moments” you will then be asked to provide your outcomes while taking in consideration your campus’s best practices and politics for handling issues. When we share our thoughts and processes with open dialogue we can learn from each other and come away hopefully better prepared to handle the next trial or tribulation.
