Program Session One Good Intenons Are Not Enough: Decolonizing "Diversity" in Student Affairs Room 270 Paul C. Gorski, Ph. D George Mason University; Humane Society University Despite the good inten-ons of “diversity advocates” and “mul-cultural affairs” offices, many diversity ini-a-ves accentuate exis-ng inequi-es. Drawing on the concept, “decolonized mul-culturalism,” through interac-ve discussion and exercises, par-cipants will explore how “diversity” is framed, o;en in ways that support hegemonic condi-ons related to race, sexual orienta-on, gender, class, and so on. We will discuss common ways these condi-ons are perpetuated through well-inten-oned diversity ini-a-ves and how to challenge ourselves to transcend the dominant discourse and push for social jus-ce.

Ge6ng YOUR Word Out: ACPA Publicaon Opportunies from Beginner to Experienced Writer Room 272 Alice A. Mitchell, Ph. D University of Maryland College Park As professionals in student affairs, we o;en have informa-on to share with others that will assist them professionally. Instead of just walking down the hall and chaDng with your neighbor, why not share your informa-on and exper-se more broadly? This session will acquaint you with ACPA publica-ons and "what it takes" to write for each one. Some publica-ons are great for those who are just beginning to write professionally. Other publica-ons are a good choice if you have some publica-on experience. Come learn how to get started in sharing your good ideas beyond chaDng with your neighbor!

Encouraging Students to Intervene Room 330 Tim Cherney, Loyola University Maryland Jennifer McCary, Ge:ysburg College Everyday our students witness bias-related behaviors or other ac-ons that damage our communi-es. This session will review factors that inhibit students from intervening in these situa-ons. Furthermore, once students commit to intervening, many aren't confident in their abili-es to make a posi-ve change. This presenta-on will provide par-cipants with tools, techniques, and language they can use to empower their students to step in when they witness nega-ve behaviors. 5


Program Session Two Hook 'Em Early, planning a Parent Preview Orientaon Program Room 270 Michael Robbin, McDaniel College McDaniel College introduced a new parent orienta-on program for Summer 2011 called Parent Preview. The program was aimed at making allies of the parents of the incoming first year class parents early in the college experience, and to help be:er orient them to the staff/offices so they could help serve as a resource to their students. This session will walk through the major planning steps that Student Affairs at McDaniel took in order to have this very successful program take place.

Learning by Example: Culvang Academic Affairs and Student Affairs Connecons Room 272 Michael Puma, Loyola University Maryland David S. Clurman, University of Maryland, Bal-more County Research indicates that students who have informal contact with faculty outside of the classroom are generally more sa-sfied with college life, exhibit higher levels of achievement, and are more likely to graduate from college. Come find out how two universi-es, one public and one private, have worked to create and maintain successful connec-ons between academic affairs and residen-al life. Learn about how you could develop and nurture programs on your campus while avoiding common challenges and piSalls.

License to Thrill: Recruitment, Training, and Retenon in Student Organizaons Room 330 Ana Maia, University of Maryland - College Park Damien Franze, University of Maryland - College Park This interac-ve presenta-on examines effec-ve prac-ces and approaches in working with student organiza-ons and leaders. The learning outcomes include a) understanding the role of involvement with student organiza-ons as a vehicle for leadership development and student success; b) gaining knowledge and understanding of effec-ve strategies for recruitment, training, development and reten-on of student organiza-on leaders; c) understanding the importance and effec-veness of standardized and inten-onal recruitment and selec-on processes, peer-mentoring experiences, and new-member training within a student organiza-on. 6
