|Early Registration Date: Jun 01, 2012|
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This event is ideal for directors of housing and residential life and academic affairs administrators at residential colleges and universities that are considering or have recently implemented living-learning communities at their institutions. Other student affairs and academic affairs administrators involved with the development or management of these programs will also benefit from this content. This conference is particularly well-suited for those institutions with minimal experience with living-learning programs or those institutions looking to make major improvements to existing living-learning programs. Cross-functional teams are strongly encouraged to attend.
Leveraging Assessment Data for New and Improved LLCs
This pre-conference workshop will provide you with an overview of NSLLP survey approach and methodology as well as insights as to how your campusâ€™s NSSE and EBI data should impact the development of your living-learning programs. You will leave this session with an understanding of how to leverage this data to make the case for initiating or continuing support of living-learning programs on your campus.
Budgeting Considerations for Living-Learning Programs
The post-conference workshop will be a hands-on budgeting workshop. You will review sample budgets from living-learning programs, gain an understanding of which departments are responsible for each item, and discuss how to prioritize your programâ€™s needs. The workshop will conclude with a showcase of innovative ideas for soliciting resources. You are encouraged to bring your current budget for review by the conference faculty.
