On March 1, 2019, student and academic affairs administrators will gather at Bentley University in Waltham MA, just outside of Boston, to examine partnerships that transcend traditional boundaries to further student success. This conversation provides an opportunity to discuss impactful programming with colleagues you might not typically interact with at your home institution. Topics to be discussed include applying student development theory in academic affairs, student retention, using predictive analytics, building relationships with colleagues “across the aisle” and successful collaborations.

The preliminary program plan includes a plenary session, a panel presentation and concurrent sessions in which participants will have the opportunity to explore how they can utilize campus partnerships to impact important campus issues.

Intersections of Academic and Student Affairs: Partners in Student Success continues the conversation started in ACPA’s 2017 publication Student Affairs for Academic Administrators, Dr. T. Lynn Hogan, editor. This drive-in is an opportunity for practitioners in student and academic affairs to explore techniques to put theory into practice for the betterment of students and our institutions.

Registration is $40 per person and includes lunch, breaks, parking and conference materials. Online registration will be available soon. The registration deadline is February 15.
