NCSL Fall 2012 Conference

Welcome to the 73rd assembly of the National Conference on Student Leadership. Whether this is your first NCSL conference or you are a returning veteran, all of us at NCSL welcome you.

NCSL Staff Susan Liimatta NCSL Conference Manager susan.liimatta@ncslcollege.com

5 tips for getting the most value from being here … 1. Grow Your Network. We encourage you to take advantage of every opportunity by attending the keynotes, welcome reception, workshop sessions, and shared meals. Set goals for the kinds of connections you want to make. Reach out to other delegates, and plan how you will follow up with them.

Bill Haight President billh@magnapubs.com

2. Get Smarter. Use the planning grids on pages 12 and 13 to plan your conference attendance. Be prepared to capture the information with pen and paper, your laptop or iPad. Discuss the sessions with others. Introduce yourself to speakers and ask questions – then share what you’ve learned with your team.

Jen Siegel Marketing Planner jennifer.siegel@magnapubs.com

3. Share Content. To get the most out of each session, plan to share content with your team. You’ll learn more and multiply the value of one person attending a workshop. Knowing that you will share the information helps you focus on takeaways and practical information.

Tom Vodak NCSL Technology Coordinator tom.vodak@magnapubs.com

4. Practice Leadership Skills. Be a model for what you know and what you learn here. Moved by a speaker? Shake the speaker’s hand and share your appreciation. Go beyond what’s comfortable and grow your network. Participate in every event while you’re here, then work with your team to leverage your conference experience when you get back to campus. 5. Arrive on Time. Be present and be ready. Plan your schedule ahead of time and plan to be on time. We hope that you’ll come away energized, with renewed enthusiasm for getting things done, and committed to taking your leadership to another level when you get back to campus. The NCSL Staff

Optional Preconference Program ($169 Onsite Registration Fee)

Breaking the Unwritten Rules of Leadership Michael Weber, Southwestern Consulting Leadership Institute All organizations have structures and systems. Some are purposeful and clearly defined. Others exist because "that's the way we've always done it." These systems, patterns, and habits are the unwritten rules of your group—the rules that everyone knows about, but no one talks about—and yet they govern how you think and what you attempt. There are 7 unwritten rules that exist in the minds of college students as relates to engagement, involvement and their development as leaders. Once you identify those rules, you can then develop strategies for breaking the ones that hold people back, get ting more students involved, helping them develop their skill sets earlier, and building a sustainable and influential leadership development program. Learning Outcomes 1. Recognize the “unwritten rules” and how they affect students and organizations 2. Learn strategy for helping students to think differently, challenge faulty assumptions, and embrace growth through organizational change 3.

A Better Shortcut to Success

As a courtesy to all professional staff in attendance, NCSL invites you to use this informal meeting space to network with your colleagues and to relax and refresh.

Matthew Shupp, Penn State Brandywine With 48% of people in the United States living with a mental or behavioral disorder at some time in their lives, no one will argue that the problems facing today’s college students are not enormous. The statistics, the news headlines, counseling center directors, and the students themselves all make it very clear that there is a crisis on our campuses. Depression, substance abuse, anxiety disorders, sexual assault, anger and rage disorders (assertive and aggressive behavior), eating disorders, impulsive behaviors (including sexual promiscuity and self-mutilation), and even suicidal ideation are no longer anomalies. They are part of college life. However, this new reality also brings a new set of responsibilities to faculty, staff, and student advisors, including managing conflicts in residential communities and individual student relationships as well as the managing the disruption of academic classes and/or other campus operations. The drain on staff resources is often overwhelming. Student advisors are often the first responders to such student crises. How, as educators, should we be looking for responsible, creative ways to keep troubled but otherwise qualified students enrolled rather than creative ways to dismiss them? Through case study and group discussion, participants will have the opportunity to assess their campuses’ readiness to address such concerns and walk away from the presentation with helpful tips they can use when they encounter such emergencies. Learning Outcomes 1. Share common stories around “troublesome,” “alarming,” and “distressed” behavior that you have encountered at your institution 2. Understand ways to identify threat assessment levels, including cognitive and primal aggression 3. Assess campus resources and readiness regarding responding to students in distress 4. Identify appropriate campus resources for faculty and staff support 5. Create and integrate a response action plan ("to do" list) when faced with similar student behavior KEYWORDS: managing conflict, crisis response, campus readiness, threat assessment, action plan, behavior disorders

Matthew Tenney, Wanna Save The World, Inc. Would you like to learn tools used by top companies like Google to help you improve performance and productivity at school and at work and also increase levels of happiness and well-being? In this interactive, entertaining, and inspiring program, Matthew Tenney shares these tools along with his unique personal story. In January 2001, Matthew took a “shortcut to success,” attempting fraud against the U.S. Government and spent 5.5 years confined to military brigs as a result. He transformed the brig into a monastery, living and training as a monk for more than 3 years. As a result of his practice, Matthew thrived in one of the most stressful environments in the world, and he discovered that mindfulness is a better shortcut to success, resulting in greater happiness, increased stress resilience, greater kindness and compassion, and ironically greater “worldly success” as well. Learning Outcomes 1. Learn powerful concepts and techniques for reducing stress, improving performance and productivity, and improving overall well-being 2. Understand how mindfulness can free us from the limitations we create in our minds 3. Gain a new vision of success, based on research indicating that mindfulness and greater happiness result in better performance at school and work

Tom Krieglstein, Swift Kick Like being on a dance floor, every college student experiences varying levels of engagement, from those fully involved (student leaders), to those lurking on the edge (apathetic students). The same tactics to create successful social change on a dance floor (connections, relevancy, models of success, and motivation) also work to increase engagement within any college. Dance Floor Theory provides student leaders and advisors a new model for creating community, increasing student engagement, and fostering a culture of retention. Learning Outcomes 1. Discover a framework for understanding apathy and engagement 2. Identify examples of activities to increase engagement 3. Apply tools for increasing group retention

"Just Because I Am ... Doesn’t Mean …" How to Have Real Conversations about Real Situations Stan Pearson II, The Pearson Project

How many times have you been told that it is important for you to get involved in “stuff” outside of the classroom? That you should focus on more than just academics while in college? That employers value a well-rounded resume which highlights involvement in leadership positions supporting your academic coursework? None of this is bad advice. However, there is such a thing as being involved in too many activities. Too often, student leaders have a hard time saying “no.” Little by little, as the responsibilities pile up, so does the amount of stress. As a result, the quality of your personal life and the quality of your work (both inside and outside the classroom) decreases. Join us for a humorous and informative discussion on life/school balance. Learn how and when to say “no” to additional leadership opportunities and start living a healthier and more-balanced life. Learning Outcomes 1. Share common stories around taking on too many student leadership responsibilities 2.
