July 22, 2013
About 300 people attended the recent "Knowledge Is Power" conference sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs and NASPA, a professional organization for student affairs administrators in higher education. About two-thirds of the attendees were University staff, faculty and graduate students.
"The focus was on best practices and how to facilitate student success," said Aimee Nelson, assistant dean of the College of Education and a member of the planning committee. "These sessions bring people together to learn more about student affairs as well as personal development. "
Topics this year included: "Ethics and Core Values," "Using Technology for Student Success" and "Strategies to Improve Student Success Among Students of Color."
