Why We Can't Wait - Our Living Learning Community Journey
Equity and Inclusion are core values for many predominantly white institutions. As a result, many of these universities are considering or have created identity based living learning communities. In this session, the University of Colorado will work to answer ACPAs call for research and best practices connected to the Strategic Imperative for Racial Justice and Decolonization through the discussion of their journey in creating the Lucile B. Buchanan Living Learning Community for Black identified students and allies.

Sophomore Thriving: Role of Campus Involvement and Living on Campus
Despite the increase in research and sophomore-specific programs aimed at understanding and supporting second-year students, as many as 27% of sophomores describe themselves as only surviving, barely surviving, or not surviving in college. As a recent addition to the measurement of student success, Thriving has emerging as a construct that represents a more holistic view of student success. The important roles campus involvement and living on campus play in sophomore thriving are explored and recommendations for practice are discussed.

Implementing Intentional Conversations into your Residence Life and Curriculum Work

In some residential education departments, 1-1 student staff-to-resident conversations have replaced programming as a main method of educational outcomes achievement. These conversations also feature prominently in designs for residential curricula. In this session, participants will learn how to implement effective interactions through intentionally developed guides and prompts. Additional topics include staff selection and training as well as assessment techniques.
