Not in Campus Rec, that’s ok.. Great transferable topics such as working from home with kids, student development opportunities and creative virtual programming.

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s more important than ever to make sure we stay connected. Attend an “Ideas in Motion” virtual roundtables. Share ideas with campus recreation professionals across a broad selection of focus areas.

These roundtables are conducted at the speed of social distancing. We might see a cat’s tail dancing in front of a web cam or a child asking about the status of their mashed potatoes. Join us in a forgiving environment to help advance health and wellbeing. All session are recorded and can easily be played back.

The Student Affairs Collective

One of the most powerful lifelines in a community is storytelling. We are excited to bring back the Student Affairs blog as a place to share our triumphs, struggles, moments of joy and moments of strength. This is a place for you to share your words with the higher education community. We acknowledge that this is a time of unknowns, of high demands, new realities, and pressures from all sides. We invite you to write as a way to process this experience, share your stories, and contribute to our greater community of practitioners — as you are able and willing.
