Celebrating the early years: LGBTQ+ Activism Within ACPA
13 April 2021 // 1:00PM EST // $10
Celebrating the history of LGBTQ+ activism within ACPA is long overdue. From the early 1980s clandestine meetings of LGBTQ+ members to the creation of the fledgling Standing Committee for Lesbian Gay and Bisexual Awareness and now the Sexuality and Gender Identities Coalition, Queer and Trans*, members have always been central to ACPA. Join a conversation among ACPA members who were there during those early years as they discuss their Queer and Trans* activism journey in student affairs and ACPA.
presented by: Amy Reynolds, Jamie Washington, Julie Elkins, David Barnett, Chuck Rhodes, and Mary McGhee

People > Job Titles: Fostering Humanity by De-centering Power
29 April 2021 // 2:30PM ET // $10
Office hours. Vacation time. Travel requests. We mark our work and time by these outdated modes of recordkeeping, of control, while trying to reconcile this superficial accounting with the realities of our work. We are an inherently human profession. This session explores the ways that ineffective, sometimes toxic leadership leads to the dehumanization of our work. We invite you to join a dialogue that challenges higher education leaders to reframe leadership, center the dignity inherent in ourselves and our work, and deconstruct neoliberal higher education.
presented by: James D. Breslin, Bellarmine University; Becki Elkins, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse
moderated by: Troy Seppelt; University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point; Senior Level Community of Practice Chair
