Inclusive Supervision Strategies: Utilizing Effective Assessment Tools in the Supervisory Dyad
Member Price: $49
Non-member Price: $199 

Presenters: Matthew R. Shupp and Amy Wilson (Read Bios)

Staff retention is increasingly important in a field where responsibilities are progressively more demanding. This webinar will examine how assessment of supervisory practice informed the creation of an innovative approach to supervision that seeks to align our professional values with our professional practice. The Inclusive Supervision Model for Student Affairs reflects the important values of our profession and provides a framework through which professionals can evaluate supervision practice and consider specific actions to enhance one's own capacity for inclusive supervision. Inclusive Supervision is an intentional approach to supervision that is informed through a lens of multicultural competence. Inclusive supervisors embody the values and principles of the profession, demonstrating a commitment to the creation of safe spaces, the cultivation of individual's identities in the workplace, a genuine sense of openness and willingness to learn, and the ability to build staff's competency in the area of social justice and inclusion.

Sleep Deprivation Epidemic: Implications for Retention, Mental Health, and Academic Success
Member Price: $49

Presenters: J. Roxanne Prichard, PhD and Birdie Cunningham, MA (Read Bios)

More than two-thirds of students experience significant problems with excessive drowsiness, one third fall asleep in class at least once a week, and a quarter describe their sleep problems as traumatic or difficult to handle. The obstacles to obtaining restorative, sufficient sleep in the college student population include a confluence of environmental, physiological, pharmacological, psychological, and sociological factors. Students with untreated or undetected sleep problems are more at risk for multiple negative psychological, physical, and academic outcomes. In college students, inadequate sleep has a negative impact on GPA and course withdrawals on par with marijuana use and high risk drinking. Through this webinar, participants will: identify demographic and behavioral risk factors for disturbed sleep in the college population; recognize the academic, social, and health consequences of disturbed sleep; and describe effective strategies for assessing and improving sleep.

Leveraging Employee Engagement to Bolster Student Success
Member Price: $49
Non-member Price: $199

Presenter: Jon Sexton, PhD (Read Bio)

Throughout the higher education landscape, there is a significant focus on achieving strong recruitment numbers, achieving high levels of student success, and ultimately maximizing retention. Challenges associated with these goals are amplified based on ongoing challenges for many institutions in regards to dwindling state and federal financial support, increased emphasis on identifying department efficiencies (frequently manifesting as a need to do more with less), and overall budget constraints which can hinder annual increases and professional development opportunities. These challenges pose significant risks to employee engagement, which plays a pivotal role in helping your department achieve goals associated with student success. 

Regardless of institution type (public or private, 2-year or 4-year) higher education professionals need to understand the importance of employee engagement and leverage strategies to maximize it within every team they work with or oversee. Placing an emphasis on employee engagement can significantly buffer the aforementioned challenges many professionals in higher education face today. This webinar will provide an overview of the importance of employee engagement, explore strategies for measurement, and provide tangible initiatives you can implement to help your professional and student teams thrive.
