President’s Message BY MATTHEW WHITE

2020−What a Year!

A

s 2020 comes to a close (yippie!), I reflect on the state of our association. To see the state of the association, we only need to look at how AFC and our members have responded this year.

We started the year with our Leadership conference where we packed our state office building to capacity with AFC leaders new and old. It was a wonderful start to what we thought would be an awesome year. Then COVID hit us in March. In the midst of our college’s converting ALL classes online, our AFC leaders went above and beyond by moving all five region conferences to a virtual format for the first time ever. Our commission leaders held virtual events and presented at region conferences as well. In addition to our regions and commissions, our chapters stepped up also and found ways to connect with their members.

Also during this time, our state office started offering webinars on Tuesdays and Thursdays, not just for our AFC members, but for ALL state college employees. As an in-person, event heavy, association, this pivot was unprecedented and I feel has changed our association as to what we can do moving forward. I wish I could tell you that everything is fine and sunny. These are tough times and our association has not been immune to the circumstances. Similar to our colleges, our association faces difficult decisions as we reflect on what makes this association what it is today and where we should go moving forward. What I can do is ask you to look for the silver linings from this past year, such as the fact that we have “virtually” reached more members this year than any other. I see these changes as opportunities for our association to adapt and grow. But if this year has taught me anything else, it’s that our AFC members are awesome, are resilient, and are DEFINITELY dedicated to our association. So as for the state of our association, I say that with the continued support of our membership, AFC can weather any storm! For my last time as your AFC President, thank you for your support as AFC moves forward together.

Executive Director/CEO’s Message BY MARSHA KINER

10 Things I Am Grateful for in 2020 As we closed out our first virtual Annual Conference a couple of weeks ago, I felt a little adrift. Normally, I am bolstered by the event and ride atop a wave of good feeling through the end of the year. I did not have that feeling this year and I wondered why. I knew the staff and I had done our very best to provide a great conference experience and the feedback we received confirmed it. Yet, I was still a bit unsettled. It was only after speaking to another colleague that I began to better understand my emotions. This year has been like no other and expecting to experience anything in the same way as “a normal year” – well, is not realistic. So, I began to look back at all the accomplishments of 2020, and I realized that I was truly grateful. Was 2020 the year that I thought it was going to be back in January during our Leadership Conference? No. Has it been challenging to us emotionally, taxing on us physically, and devastating to us fiscally? Yes. But I also think that 2020 taught us some valuable lessons, and it has helped us reprioritize what really matters. I believe that we have a great deal to be grateful for this year. Here are 10 things I am grateful for in 2020: The Division of Florida Colleges and Chancellor Kathy Hebda ~ The Division has always been a friend to our colleges and a great resource. This year, more than any other, the Chancellor and her team provided needed information and resources to us 24/7. If we asked, they responded. I am grateful

10

M A G A Z I N E

(850) 222 -3222  |  myafchome.org

for the Chancellor’s leadership and the support of her team. The last eight months could not have been successfully navigated without this great partnership. Thank You.

9

The Councils ~ The Council of Student Affairs, the Council of Instructional Affairs, the Council for Workforce Education, the Council of Business Affairs, the HR Council, and the Florida Council for Resource Development (FCRD). These leaders and administrators met weekly for months to discuss the real challenges facing our system. Many of them, while everyone else was working from home, were still working from their campus offices ensuring that the work of the college continued. Planning and making decisions during a pandemic without a blueprint or a roadmap was daunting, overwhelming, and I am sure at times a thankless position. I am grateful to all of our college leaders who met this moment with their chins held high and resolve in their spirit to conquer the unknown in the safest way possible for our students, our staff, and our faculty. I thank you.

8

The AFC Commission Chairs ~ This year provided the perfect excuse if someone wanted one – to do absolutely nothing. Everyone felt overwhelmed and no one knew exactly what they were doing. Yet, our Commission Chairs did not let a canceled spring of in-person meetings and conferences pass them by. Instead, they rallied to hold free virtual conferences. They joined with region leaders to plan professional development and activities designed to provide a connection at a time when many felt isolated. They accepted the challenge of hosting summer webinars so that the AFC could continue to provide professional development not just for our members, but for our college community. They collaborated on topics, sought out speakers, and jointly worked with others throughout the system to provide timely content on issues that college employees Continued on page 5 Print

Executive Director/CEO's Message were facing. Thank you for accepting the challenge to remain active and engaged as leaders, and thank you all for the effort and work you did this year. You made a difference, and I am grateful.

7

The AFC Region Directors ~ The year would have been a bust had these five leaders not stepped up and forged ahead. Wanjiku Jackson, Joyce Smith, Charlene Latimer, Jaimie Pagels, and Brenda Rante – I am so very grateful for each of you. Your region conferences were filled with great content, fun activities (trivia night), and the spirit of the AFC. Every Region Conference had that unique flavor that is the AFC. Did you forget to offer diverse workshops? No. Did you provide avenues for our members to give back to the community through a virtual service project? Yes. Did you think about the emotional toll that remote work was having on your peers? Yes. You, five leaders, checked every box. You went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that your chapter leaders were not left alone. During an unprecedented year, we needed exceptional leaders. I am grateful to each of you. You ROCK!

6

The AFC Chapters ~ So many of our Chapters meet virtually and sought avenues of connection for their members and peers at their colleges. Shifting to remote work abruptly and having to do your jobs from home, while ensuring your kids finished their schoolwork virtually, was no easy task. Many of you answered the calls and questions of students from

home or taught your first online class from your home office. It was not easy. The facilities folks were still on campus creating a safe environment for those select groups that had to continue to meet on campus. When you could have focused solely on yourselves, you did not. Instead, you found ways to create opportunities to gain that feeling of togetherness. From Zoom Dance Parties to online community service projects, you helped to keep the spirit of togetherness alive at your colleges. No one job is more important than another, but some people are often overlooked and possibly not given the credit they deserve for all the work that they do. You are my unsung heroes. Thank you for what you do every day for your colleges, your students, and the AFC.

5

The Council of Presidents ~ In March, none of us knew what would happen next. One day it was business as usual, and the next day decisions were made to move all classes online for the remainder of the semester. Your leadership and direction were paramount in helping to shape how the colleges functioned throughout this crisis. As a group of leaders, you met and shared challenges and solutions. Often you were sharing your best resources – your human resources. As leaders, you were not selfish nor were you closed-minded. You were committed to the continuity of student learning. As compassionate leaders, each of you worked tirelessly alongside your staff to ensure that your students, faculty/ staff, colleges, and the communities you serve were

safe. This most unusual time required extraordinary leadership and wisdom from those at the helm of our 28 colleges. Thank You.

4

The AFC Board of Directors ~ From January’s first meeting to the virtual Annual Conference last month, you have been engaged in the business of the AFC like no other Board before you. Your collective work this year allowed the AFC to remain relevant and necessary when almost everything that we knew changed. You trusted your executive officers, and you supported the AFC by showing up and engaging consistently. No one sat on the sidelines. Every single one of you took your responsibility and duty of service to heart. Thank you for your dedication and volunteer service to the AFC. I am so very grateful to you.

3

The AFC Executive Committee ~ There are times in life when we realize that everything happens for a reason. Words cannot express what these people mean to me. The stars aligned for this group of people to lead together in 2020: Matthew White, Ray Coulter, Marjorie McGee, John Fey, Greg Williams, Holly Sutton, Christine Tripp, Byron Todd, and Andre Hawkins. Two years ago, when I spoke with Matt White about running for President, I knew a few things about him. I knew he was a man of his word. I knew he was thoughtful and smart. I knew he was fair-minded and had a love for the AFC. I thought he would be a good association president. Thanks to 2020, I learned Continued on page 6

Executive Director/CEO's Message that President Matthew White was all those things and so much more. When the world turned upside down and everything went remote/online, it was ideal to have a President at the helm with an IT background. From singlehandedly running the tech support for several of the region and commission meetings in April, to assisting the AFC staff in determining the best technology to use for virtual offerings, to providing tech support during the annual conference, Matthew White was the right man at the right time for the AFC Presidency. The challenges of 2020 were many. Matt and the Executive Committee met each one head-on. They worked with AFC staff to ensure that the organization could effectively and efficiently meet the needs of the membership this year with limited fiscal resources. They helped the AFC navigate Covid-19, a CEO change, and the first-ever virtual annual conference. They provided outstanding leadership. These leaders united in their goal to ensure that the AFC is the best that it can be. They made a difference. I will be forever grateful for your leadership, for your support, and for your belief in my abilities to lead the AFC during this critical moment in time. Thank You.

2

The AFC Staff – The challenges of this year were many. In March, one staff member retired; and two weeks later, the AFC staff began working from home. The transition was not easy. We had to figure out the technology and determine how we were going to move forward without all the “normal” activities. We created a calendar for professional development and reached out to our Board and other system leaders to help us develop workshops to engage the members. Then in July, we faced a CEO change together. We went from a group of five to a team of four. While it was daunting, I am so proud of what we have accomplished together this year. Since July, we have grown closer, stronger, and I believe better as a unit. AFC has a heart. I have always known this to be fact and truly believed it. I saw it this year time and time again. The AFC Staff believes in its mission and loves the members that we serve. For every challenge we faced, our objective was to overcome it so that we could accomplish our goals. I am honored to work with David Schrenk, Sharlee Whiddon, and Eileen Johnson. Thank you for your dedication and your commitment to making the AFC the best association it can be. I also am grateful for Doug Ryan (of Doug Ryan Consulting) who has worked with us on all our meetings for years. Our virtual Annual Conference would not have been successful without you. Thank you, Doug Ryan, for your commitment to the AFC. I am forever grateful to you all.

The AFC Members ~ Thank you for your investment in the AFC. In a year when it may have been easy to drop your membership or not engage in anything other than what you had to do, and you continued your membership in the AFC. More than 4000 of you attended the AFC webinars or Region and Commission Conferences from April through September. You participated in the new college professional development series ACCESS AFC, joined the new AFC Book Club, or listened to the new AFC Podcast ~ The Community. You logged on to a Zoom Trivia Night, AFC Dance Party, or a webinar on how to deal with stress and anxiety. You shared your experiences working remotely and talked openly about your concerns, your challenges, and how you were coping. Over 250 of you attended the AFC virtual Annual Conference and logged on to see your peers be recognized for their leadership and volunteer service to the association. You showed up during a pandemic! I thank you. As we close 2020, it has been my honor to serve the AFC this year. Your resilience, can-do spirit, and ingenuity inspired me. Looking ahead to 2021, I know our best is yet to come.

A Simple Way to Overachieve Without Over Committing BY BRIAN HILLIARD | www.brianhilliard.com

A

s a speaker and coach who travels the country for a living, I’m often asked what people can do to get stuff done and be more productive without killing themselves in the process. In other words, everyone has a lot going on – and even more so with the current situation the country is in right now – but how can I as an Association Executive or team member or salesperson continue to move forward, while keeping my sanity intact?

And while there is no one size fits all response, here’s one of my favorites to get you started.

Get Yourself a Whiteboard. The reason I like this is because it deals with a problem a LOT of people face, which is what I call a “runaway to do list”. So for most people, they approach their “to do” list in one of three ways. • Number 1: They write down everything that needs to get done on sticky notes and post them all over their desk. (Not recommended: Easy to get overwhelmed with all of the notes.) • Number 2: They have a legal size pad of paper where they write stuff down (and cross things off) on a running basis throughout the day. (Not recommended: Never feel like you’re moving forward as you’re constantly crossing stuff off AND adding new stuff at the same time!) • Number 3: You have people who do everything “right now, while I’m still thinking about it” in a mad dash to get everything done. (Not recommended: It constantly feels like you’re running around doing everything for everyone else.) And while none of these are particularly better or worse than the other, I recommend another option…the whiteboard. • • •

And the reason for that is because it allows you to: Capture your thoughts in a place you can trust, While allowing you to make visible progress towards your goal, Without feeling stressed out by trying to keep track of everything you need to do.

And its that last part which is super important, because in my close to 20 years of doing this, the reason most

Brian Hilliard is a popular speaker, coach, and bestselling author. As a graduate of Duke University, Brian started his speaking business in 2001, where he’s written 7 books, published close to 200 podcast episodes, and has delivered countless presentations to literally hundreds of groups in the areas of Marketing, Leadership & HighPerformance Success.

Continued from page 35 people feel overwhelmed is actually NOT because of all the things they need to do. Obviously the volume does have an impact, but the real issue for most folks is trying to keep track of all the things they need to do so nothing falls through the cracks! That’s why you see people overusing post it notes and doing things “right now”…so they don’t forget and let something slip through. But with the whiteboard you don’t have that problem, because everything is in one place. So here’s how it works. Step #1: Write everything you have to do on a sheet of paper. And I mean everything. Any projects that you’re working on for the students specifically or for yourself professionally or things your Department Head has asked you to do… everything. Step #2: Get yourself a whiteboard and transfer those items onto the board. Also during this step I recommend grouping tasks together into related categories to make things easier. For example, you might have a project that has 2 or 3 items underneath it that needs to get done. So I would write that on my board as follows: Project A • Task #1 • Task #2

M A G A Z I N E

Step #3: Transfer the Top 5 or 7 items that you want to accomplish that day onto a 4 by 6 note card. I use a colored card that way it doesn’t get lost on my desk, but regardless, this note card represents what you need “to do” that day. Place it in a prominent section of your desk so you can see it throughout the day. Step #4: As you go about your day, cross things off that get done. And if your Manager or someone calls and gives you something that needs to get done today, then just add it real quick and keep moving. Pro Tip: When given something by your Manager, ask about the timing of its completion. A lot of times we ASSUME it needs to get done right away when it doesn’t. So if it has to get done today, it goes onto the “to do” list. But if not, put it on your whiteboard for tomorrow. Step #5: At the end of the day, rip up the note card. (That will feel really good!) But not before transferring what you didn’t do – and still want to accomplish – onto tomorrow’s list.

What needs to get done Project A

Project B

Task 1 Task 2

Task 1 Task 2

Now that might seem like a lot, but believe me, that process will absolutely allow you to handle ALL of the things that come your way, while giving you a sense of accomplishment AND keeping your sanity in the process! Sounds like a win, win (win?) to me.

LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE UPDATE ByJessica Kummerle, Legislative Committee Chair Jules Michelet, a French historian, was the first historian to use and define the word- Renaissance. Renaissance was the period in time when Europe transitioned from the Middle Ages to modernity, after the Crisis of the Late Middle Ages. The Crisis included the Black Death (up to 75-200 million people died), civil wars between nobles within countries (such as the Wars of the Roses), international conflicts and the split of the Catholic Church. Some might say history is repeating in some ways with our own Renaissance. His most famous quote was, “What is the first part of politics? Education. The second? Education. And the third? Education.” Learning the history and understanding the political atmosphere is important for you and for your college. I would like the opportunity to educate you and your fellow college employees on the political environment, budget and/or policy. If you would ever like me to present at your chapter or regional meeting, please reach out to me. Or if you ever have any questions about policy, I am just a text, phone call or email away. Legislative Session is just around the corner, beginning March 2021. Committee weeks will start up the beginning of January. Our Speaker of the House is the Honorable Chris Sprowls. He resides in Palm Harbor and is an attorney. Our Senate President is the Honorable Wilton Simpson. He resides in Trilby and is an egg farmer. He served on the District Board of Trustees for Pasco Hernando State College. Republicans are the majority in the House (78-42) and in the Senate (24-16). The first bill pertaining to colleges has been filed. HB 6001 (Rep. Sabitini) would remove provisions prohibiting concealed carry licenses from openly carrying handguns or concealed weapons into a college facility. I will keep you updated on how session is going.

Our attendees included Holly Sutton VP for Regions and Commissions, Andrea Gabriel Chapter President, Jeanne Anderson Secretary, and Heather Shingleton. I was excited to see so many attendees this year, especially since the year has been so difficult for so many. The conference sessions were very informative in addressing concerns due to COVID, virtual learning and working, and stress management. Our attendees received tons of great information on student engagement, risk taking and personal growth, and thriving in difficult times. The legislative preview was especially informative, considering the challenges our state and college system will be facing in the coming year. The conference had a focus on mental health and wellness this year, which is particularly beneficial to those facing obstacles at home and work with the “new normal.” Mental health and wellness is critical for not only employees, but students as well, and to hear so many strategies and tips on managing our own mental health and wellness as well as assisting our students in this area was enlightening and valuable. This year’s best practices were also excellent, and we applaud our colleagues on their hard work and dedication to our students. Thank you to our AFC leadership, staff, and volunteers who made this conference great!

• Spotlight Award – by day, a mild-mannered colleague, but here’s some great things you don't know • The “One More Thing” Award -- for the person most likely to extend the meeting. • Amazing Dedication Award – this is the person who never stops giving to the organization. • Inspire Award – the person you want to be when you grow up—your mentor. • MacGyver Award – the best person to fix things, or the techie in your work life. • Behind the Scenes Award – the person who avoids the spotlight but makes the event/task/dept. go forward. • Rookie of the Year Award – the Newbie who is killing it. • Marvelous Multitasker Award -- for that person who never seems to sleep. • Wow Award – for outstanding work, either in a one-time event, or every day. • Mute/Unmute Award – Whoops! there’s always that one person in the meeting.

FLORIDA STATE COLLEGE AT JACKSONVILLE The FSCJ Chapter would like to extend a hearty thank you to all involved in hosting and coordinating the recent 2020 AFC Annual Meeting and Conference. While somewhat disappointing we were not able to assemble in person, we did not let that get in our way. As was announced, every one of the Great 28 was represented! And the FSCJ Chapter had the most delegates ever! From the pre-conference meetings to adjournment, this conference was Continued on page 41

packed with activities and ways for members to connect. The keynote speaker and concurrent sessions offered this year were engaging and relevant. Each offered the audience a realistic view of the topic and presented valuable information. For FSCJ, the virtual platform was a great opportunity for our new chapter members to see the value of the AFC, as well as allowing long-standing members to re-engage. A chapter goal is to grow our membership by creating more intentional, substantial experiences for our participants. We believe that by providing a forum that delivers meaningful information, we will motivate current members to attend and inspire more employees to join. We have no doubt that the 21 FSCJ Chapter members that attended the 2020 Annual Conference will share the value of their experience with their colleagues and hopefully bolster participation from both new and current members! We would like to acknowledge and applaud each of our outgoing officers and extend a warm welcome and congratulations to those newly elected. We look forward to a great 2021!

PHSC Chapter of AFC hosted two professional development sessions during its monthly meeting. Ms. Charlene Latimer, Chair of The AFC Certified College Professional (CCP) Program Committee, presented a broad overview about the CCP Program on September 4, and Mildred Diaz Santiago, Porter Campus Representative and CCP program participant, presented How to Lead When You Are Not in Charge on October 4 to complete her requirements for the Florida Colleges Professional Certificate. The PHSC Chapter of AFC had three CCP graduates this year.

SEMINOLE STATE COLLEGE OF FLORIDA The AFC chapter at Seminole State College is thrilled to celebrate several highlights throughout this unprecedented year. Despite the many challenges we faced as a community, we continued to serve in the spirit and mission of AFC thanks to our amazing members. Earning Platinum chapter award recognition for 2019/2020 year and a Distinguished Service Award presented to Charity Lo-Guidice, Past SSC Chapter President, we are humbled to know our tireless efforts did not go unnoticed. At the Annual Conference we enjoyed the valuable resources, fellowshipping with members across the statewide network, and celebrating so many worthy individuals for their impactful contributions to the Florida College System. Hearing stories and spending time with fellow AFC members reminded me how valuable and essential AFC is to the community and constituents we serve, and how vital it is to continue the great work we do. Thanks to SSC members, we delivered 50 thankful grams to staff across the campus, prepared and distributed over 100 meals in the Thanksgiving project with United Way, we preserved a chapter tradition since 2005, in dressing 112 adorable bears, and super stuffed 54 stockings that will be delivered to the Salvation Army! We also gifted two single parent students with $50 Walmart cards who are facing hardship but striving to complete their academic goals.

Chapters TALLAHASSEE COMMUNITY COLLEGE TCC AFC Chapter members were so excited to attend the AFC Annual Conference this year! While not ideal, the virtual format allowed for more members to attend and take advantage of the great topics, inspiring messages and fantastic networking opportunities afforded them as AFC members. Here are just a few words from our members on what they thought: • There were so many great sessions during this year’s AFC Annual Meeting and Conference, but I really enjoyed Dr. Angela Long, Risk-Taking and Leadership presentation. It was very encouraging, very inspiring, and uplifting. I’m glad for the opportunity given to attend. I plan to use some of her advice to challenge myself in the near future. ~ Sheri Thomas • I really enjoyed the entire conference. I especially enjoyed the session on How to Overcome the Overwhelming and Get More Peace Back in Your Life. I have been practicing some of the tips to stay calm and have a more peaceful environment at work. ~ Gloria Mitchell • It was an informative, impressive and glorious conference. Awesome job AFC! ~ Rita Dickey • This year’s Annual Conference was the first that I’ve attended. It was a wonderful experience that showcased the comradery, and excellence throughout the great 28 that I have come to expect from AFC. I learned a lot by attending the sessions. In particular, the Gen Z to CTE and Legislative updates were my favorites. Attending the conference has given me additional reason to stay involved with the organization. The professional, yet personable atmosphere of the conference made it quite easy to enjoy. I was able to envision myself being involved in both leadership roles and opportunities to present and I liked that. I can’t wait for next year’s conference where I’ll be among the CCP graduates, a finalist for Commission of the Year, and hopefully a presenter as well. ~ Tonya Hardaway

This years’ Service Project: "Statewide College Food Pantry Challenge”. This project was co-sponsored by the Career & Professional Employees Commission and the AFC State Office. The CPEC Executive Board wanted to do something to service the whole state and not just one area. We felt with all the stress that our students are going through – this is one stressor we would try to relieve. A video was created showcasing a few of the College Pantries and asking for non-perishable food items, household items, and gift cards. Thank you to all the Pantry directors, the AFC State office, Sandi Barrett, Palm Beach State, the CPEC Executive Board, and all of you for your help and support of this project. CPEC was honored to receive the 2020 Commission of the Year Award during the Closing Ceremonies at the Annual Conference. CPEC would like to thank everyone who participated in the Conferences, Webinars, and Service Project. We greatly appreciate your support. Congratulations to our new 2021 State Officers. Thank you to AFC President, Matt White for the great job you did during the Pandemic. Our Association is still in a better place because of your leadership. Our Commission appreciates you for all your support and that “2020 Vision!” To the incoming AFC President, Ray Coulter, thank you for all your encouragement and support. Our Commission looks forward to working with you and we will “BE THE CHANGE.”

LEARNING RESOURCES COMMISSION As I reminisce about my year as the Chair of Learning Resources Commission, I can say that it was a lot of work but satisfying. The year was also successful because of the hard work and support of every member of the board. Everyone on the board had a plate full of responsibilities at work but because we are committed to the mission of the LRC Commission, we found time to do our very best. Here is how I remembered it: We started with several phone and/or virtual meetings in preparation for the Exemplary Practice Virtual Conference. The 5th Annual Virtual Conference on February 21, 2020, from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM. 100 LRC members participated in the informative and learning virtual conference. The following titles of the Learning Resources Commission Exemplary Practice Awards are below: • Speed Dating with Databases (SDWD) • Online and Ready to Help: Synchronous Chatting for Academic Support • Learning Support Services: Tutoring @ Medical Campus

Commissions Continued from page 46 The first joint virtual conference was a success. Kudos to Mr. Matthew White, 2020 AFC President, for facilitating and hosting it via WebEx. There were over 200 who registered for the conference. This year’s conference theme was “Envision Your Career Through AFC Lens”. It was based on the current AFC president’s theme, “Looking for Dedicated People with 2020 Vision”. The Joint Service Project encouraged members to donate to the charity of their choice that were dealing with those who were affected by COVID-19. Claire Miller donated masks she sewed herself. FIRST AFC VIRTUAL ANNUAL CONFERENCE The Exemplary Practice Award presentations were great. The judges selected two winners: Dr. Daphene Watson and Giselda Aguiar for the Learning Support Award. Matthew Bodie, Heather Meyer, Kassandra Sherman, Paula Knipp and Kaitlin Crockett for the Library Service Award. They made their award presentations at AFC Virtual Annual Conference. Both sessions were well attended. Finally, my year as Commission Chair for LRC concluded with my final AFC Board Report, “Save The Date” flyer for next year (2/19/21) Exemplary Practice Conference. I hope to still get involved as Past Chair. It was my pleasure to serve as 2020 LRC Chair. Mercedes Clement

TECHNOLOGY COMMISSION The Association of Florida Colleges Technology Commission awarded TCC Learning Commons (LC) employees Dr. Nicholas Vick and Dani Hawke with the first place 2020 Technology Commission Exemplary Practice Award. Dr. Nicholas Vick and Dani Hawke were presenters at the 2020 71st Annual Meeting and Conference. Their exemplary practice emerged from a time of remote learning and remote working during the early days of the pandemic. They knew that communicating with students was essential, and the staff decided the best approach was to create short videos. The video project included an informational video in terms of how students can access academic support services and equally important, motivational messages to encourage students to continue to excel. The documentation detailed how the different videos were very well received by faculty, staff, and students. The videos sent to students include Closed Captioning, and we made audio-only versions that can be listened to as short podcasts. The video project itself was a testament to the amazing collaboration that our staff believes is critical to the success of the Learning Commons.
