Today's Update: Thursday, March 25

March 25, 2021

Dear Student Life Team, I have more Scarlet and Great news about access to our professional organizations.  

Residence Life has purchased the Team Access Pass for the 2021 Association of College and University Housing Officers-International (ACUHO-I) Conference and Expo, www.acuho-i.org/events/ace. It allows for an unlimited number of people from Ohio State to register for the conference at no additional cost. I’ll paste registration directions below. 

The conference is scheduled for June 22-24, all virtual, of course. Although the focus is on housing and residence life issues, the topic areas are quite broad and incorporate most of the areas of our work. ACUHO-I is working on sessions covering everything from business operations to diversity, equity and inclusion to student engagement. 

Res Life is opening this to everyone at Ohio State, not just Student Life, so feel free to share the information.  

I am a big fan of conferences such as this. They give us an opportunity to share what we are doing and learn from our colleagues at other schools. Even virtually, they are valuable for sharing ideas and professional growth.  

This is also a nice complement to the NASPA and ACPA conference registrations that we were able to make available to Student Life team members. I’ve talked to several people who took me up on the offer and came away excited about the new ideas and perspectives they encountered from colleagues around the country.  

I hope you will take advantage of this excellent offer, and an early High Five to Dr. Qiana Smith and the Res Life team for making it possible.  

I hope you enjoy this Scarlet and Great opportunity. 

Melissa
