About Where Respect Happens

Student Affairs in Higher Education Consortium (SAHEC) member associations are collaborating on a message to students and professionals supporting students on higher education campuses. We believe this is an opportunity to amplify the voice of student affairs professionals within higher education, to provide thoughtful leadership in a time of deep uncertainty and to support students as they navigate very challenging situations on campus as well as their own inner turmoil about the future.

The core messages are simple: 

  • SAHEC Associations are committed to creating a world W, one person at a time. 
  • We are student affairs professionals creating spaces for student learning and development Where Respect Happens. 
  • I am a SA PRO. Where Respect Happens. 

Research clearly indicates that students and professionals who feel respected are more engaged. They are more likely to share their ideas, contribute their thoughts, and work collaboratively. Students who feel respected are more likely to persist, graduate, and obtain gainful employment.

Where Respect Happens offers the opportunity to increase understanding about the role of student affairs professionals in creating opportunities for engagement in those activities when students:

  • Develop a curiosity about the perspective of others
  • Seek to recognize a strength in another human being
  • Look for opportunities to connect with and support other students
  • Disagree and explain why
  • Balance the time they spend talking and listening
  • Need voice and agency in a nation that seems upside down
  • Make meaning

How to Engage



Post Your Support Sticker
Download the sticker file, print (preferably in color), and place stickers on all office windows/doors/desk (as permitted by your campus) or to your car or bike, backpack, briefcase...whatever you can in order to communicate to students that you maintain space Where Respect Happens.  This document is set up to print on 8.5x11 paper, Avery 8164 Sticker Labels.

Get and Wear Your WRH T-Shirt
Download this image file to send to your favorite t-shirt printer and/or order iron-on transfers with the Where Respect Happens imagery.  You may also use this image for the front pocket area.  Wear it often!

Send the WRH Postcards to Your Mailing List
Let your contacts know that you are part of this campaign and invite them to join, too!  Download the imagery (.zip file) for upload to a printer such as Vistaprint, Office Depot, etc. for postcards. These images are sized correctly for excellent print quality.  We recommend 4x6 postcards, high gloss, full color, full bleed.

Create and Share a WRH Video or Selfie
ACPA will be hosting videos by Where Respect Happens participants on their ACPA Video on Demand platform and custom YouTube channel. We encourage you to hold up a WRH post card and do a short video sharing why your workplace or campus is a place Where Respect Happens and send it to Tim Arth at ACPA Video on Demand. Please include your name, Association or campus name, email address, video title, and short video description.

We also encourage you to share a WRH selfie on social media and tag NODA!

Share Your WRH Story
We would love to hear examples of how your campus embodies a place Where Respect Happens. Submit your stories, and we'll share them with the NODA community.
