Using Arts Activities to Increase Self-Awareness, Emotional Health, and Cultural Sensitivity During COVID-19 and Beyond
4 June 2020 // 1:00pm EDT // Cost: $10


Discover how activities involving creative expression, reflection, and sharing can help both student affairs practitioners and their students explore their individual and cultural identities, process challenging experiences, and increase self-awareness and understanding of people with differing backgrounds and perspectives. These activities can involve modalities such as narrative/creative writing, visual artmaking, video, music, participatory theatre, and dance/movement. I will provide a conceptual framework and examples from my research with undergraduates. Find out how these activities can be used in student affairs practitioner training and with students in residence halls and multicultural, wellness, and career centers. I will also discuss how some of these activities can be adapted for use online, which can be particularly useful during COVID-19.

Equity-minded assessment for student success during (and beyond) COVID-19
17 June 2020 // 1:00pm EDT // Cost: FREE


Due to COVID-19, most campuses are delivering learning and student services at a distance and staff and faculty are working remotely. While this has been a shift for all students, the data shows that certain populations of students are more negatively impacted and that issues of access, equity and marginalization are more pronounced now than ever. In this webinar, Dr. Natasha Jankowski (NILOA), Dr. Gavin Henning (New England College), Dr. Kellie Dixon (North Carolina A&T) and Dr. Anne E. Lundquist (Campus Labs) discuss the focus and priorities for equity-minded assessment, particularly in the cocurriculum and as it relates to student involvement, engagement, retention and success. The panelists will discuss current practices as well as advice for how plan for an uncertain fall semester and beyond, provide suggestions for practice, as well as crowd-source tips and advice. Links to resources will be shared with webinar participants.

Student Behavior and Wellness in the Time of COVID-19
22 June 2020 // 1:00pm EDT // Cost: $10


In today’s higher education landscape, more institutions are embracing the multi-dimensional model of wellness as an approach to holistic well-being and student flourishing. This accessible framework helps shape our understanding of how the various elements interact with one another to promote a student’s thriving across educational spaces, both inside the classroom and beyond. When there exists an imbalance of wellness, a student may experience tension and engage in unhealthy practices. This webinar will examine the multidimensional wellness model specifically as it pertains to the stresses of COVID-19 and engage the audience with an activity to assess one’s current state of wellness and provide tools to make improvements. This activity may be used as a sanction resulting from a disciplinary process, or it can be utilized by any student affairs practitioner who wishes to work on one or several dimensions of their own wellness.
