NODA Association Update from Joyce Holl
July 2018

As we near the end of July many NODA members are heading toward the end of orientation and planning for welcome week and fall programming. It might also be a time that members are evaluating what changes they would make for the following year. NODA’s External Review is a great way to bring in seasoned professionals to give a fresh perspective. As a result of a review, members will receive a final report with recommendations that encourages modifications and changes to enhance OTR programming. Contact me to learn more about this fabulous program.

The Association Office continues to monitor national legislation that impacts higher education. Most of the legislation that we are keeping track of has not progressed in a significant way and we have heard may not show movement due to upcoming elections. At any rate, we offer some updates in our Governmental Relations for DACA, HEA and Title IX legislation.

In June 2018, NODA and its peer student affairs associations, were invited to attend the 20x30 Transform-a-thon conference by the Network for Improvement & Innovation in College Health, hosted at NYU. On behalf of NODA, Alex Barkley, Manhattanville College from the Small College Network was able to attend along with colleagues from peer associations for a joint effort in promoting student wellbeing. Alex offers his perspective from his experience. I'd like to thank Alex for his willingness to represent NODA.

As was noted in last Tuesday’s NODAfications, the Circle of Excellence nomination application has been extended to August 23. Circle of Excellence recognizes a NODA member who has served in the OTR field who has helped advance NODA’s mission. Funds raised in honor of the nominee will benefit the NODA Excellence Fund.

It is great sadness that we share the news of the passing of NODA member Kasi Jones from Purdue University. Kasi was an instrumental member of the Big 10 and Region VII. I know those who knew her are struggling with this news. My hope is that everyone will take the time to pause, reach out and support one another and reflect upon Kasi’s great work and the many memories you shared with her.

Until next time….
