Conference Sessions

The Registrar’s Office - A Love Hate Relationship

The Registrar's Office is a focal point for so much our students must do in order to navigate both policies and procedures of the college or university. I often hear tales of frustrated students, annoyed parents, teachers and administrators who must deal with policies that are enforced by the Registrar. To that end - People hate the registrar for the myriad of obsticles we place in their path, or they love us because we really do care about our students. This session will offer you the opportunity to share your stories. Like many sessions that we do, it is driven by what you put into it. Come join us and let's find out why people hate or love the Registrar

Some Thoughts on the Registrar Profession

The Registrar "must be one of the chief educational officers of the institution." There are those in our profession who perceive that the role has been diminished in recent years. I have heard this enough to believe that it is the case at some institutions. I also know many Registrars who are recognized as leaders at their institutions and who are at the core of many initiatives. In Coffman's words, "they exalt and magnify" their offices. In this presentation, drawing on my own experiences, I'll discuss factors that influence those disparate views and renew Coffman's exhortation.

Mind Your Own Busyness: How Self-Imposed “Busy” Affects Us at Work and at Play

“I’m so busy!” How many of us, when asked how we’re doing, have given (or been given) that seemingly canned response?

Being busy has become a sickness with which we’re infecting ourselves in both our personal and professional spheres. It serves as a reassurance that our lives are full – that we are important, and we are in high demand. The trend is an epidemic of self-imposed “busy” wherein we’re aware of the stress we’re causing ourselves, but can’t break the pattern. The implication is if we are not busy doing something, we’re doing nothing – that we are somehow worth less than those who are producing.

This session will examine why we are so afraid to just be, and will make us more cognizant of the ways we’re making ourselves “sick.” We will ask ourselves how our “Busy Sickness” affects the ways we
perform as employees, how we operate as managers and supervisors, and what symptoms and complications this “ailment” imposes on our personal lives.

Is being too busy actually counterproductive? Is it hurting our psyche and our health? Is it making us less effective at the jobs we’re so committed to doing well? Come join us to find out – and to find the
anecdote.

collaborate with Academic/Administrative departments, and communicate effectively with a diverse
student population that uses digital tools for daily activities. Forcing administrators to continuously think
how to integrate technology into office operations.

structure on how the ‘onePratt’ system was developed for a student-centered environment. Including how

Customer Service For The Frontline Employee

Our presentation boils down to one very simple, philosophical question - Is customer service something that takes away from your job or is it part of your job?

More specifically, do the ways that we interact with our students, co-workers and fellow staff members affect our retention rate? We think they do.

As a result we feel quite strongly that no matter what we're doing good customer service IS our job.

Collaboration: How You Can Create a More Inclusive Environment for Students with Disabilities

Access for students with disabilities is everyone's responsibility, but sometimes it's difficult to know how that pertains to you. Have you ever wondered what makes a classroom "accessible" or been unsure of how to help a student with a disability?

Join us for a session to examine many aspects of campus life and discuss the potential barriers students with disabilities may face. We will also examine the ties this has to creating a veteran friendly campus. You will leave the session with a better understanding of how to serve students with disabilities, and the foundation of a plan to serve students, promote collaborative community and create an inclusive environment for all.
