Open Forum Conversations

For any person who would like to come together to talk about the way the global pandemic is affecting their campus, we are hosting a daily series of open forum conversations with each day focusing on a different topic. These topics were compiled based on frequent questions and conversations happening across multiple NODA Community discussion threads. These sessions will be lightly facilitated with the intention that we can create a space for our members to come together to share ideas, resources, and guidance with each other on particular topics.

Find Your Third Place: Chasing "Work/Life Balance" During the Madness

Date: Wednesday, May 27
Time: 11:00am – 12:00pm CST
Presenters: James Robilotta, Certified Speaking Professional, Author, Coach, Improv Comedian
Host: NODA

Hold the eye rolls, this is a conversation about balance that is both realistic and worthwhile! The truth is, work cannot run our lives AND work Is not the only source of our balance Issues. In this session James offers an alternative to traditional methods (things like, find one hour of your week and hold it sacred) and, instead, uses the “Third Place Principle” as a way for us to gain more control and purpose. We all crave more balance, and this introspective session will help audiences understand how a Third Place can add more stability at work and home, create more impactful stories, and, most importantly, generate a more fulfilling life.

Join representatives from NIRSA and NODA for an open, informal discussion about planning for fall, with particular attention to how to best serve the newest students joining our campus communities. While COVID-19 has changed some of how we might go about addressing this work on our campuses, it has not changed our why nor the importance of working together. Organization representatives will share both examples of success and questions for the group; as this is a roundtable, participation from attendees is highly encouraged

Capitalizing on Rural Strengths to Foster Rural Student Orientation, Transition, and Retention in Higher Education

Date: Wednesday, July 29 or Wednesday, August 5
Time: 3:00pm – 4:30pm CST
Presenters: Ty McNamee, Sonja Ardoin, Vanessa Sansone, and Nicole Cooper
Host: NODA Staff

Since the 2016 U.S. Presidential election and ensuing news coverage about rural populations, higher education institutions hold a newfound vigor for recruiting and retaining rural students. However, limited research on rural students and their orientation, transition, and retention in postsecondary education exists, and the literature that does often utilizes deficit-based thinking about this population. Join rural higher education scholars, who will discuss research conducted over the past year that illuminates traits, characteristics, knowledge, and cultural backgrounds rural students possess that can inform college and university orientation, transition, and retention practices and policies for rural populations.
