  • Crafting Accessible Materials for Digital Campaigns

    Elizabeth Milarcik, Georgetown University; Brittney Klein, Georgetown University
    WED 8:00 AM – 9:15 AM, Marriott RM # 2043 Studio 2
    In this session, we’ll explore methods for effectively preparing digital materials with a focus on accessibility. This session will explain frequent accessibility missteps that occur when preparing digital materials and marketing campaigns, and will discuss how materials can be adjusted to meet accessibility standards. Using our office’s newsletter as a case study, we’ll go over different considerations including reading order, alternate text, color contrast, and screen reader accessibility.

  • Black Masters Student Experiences with Integrating Graduate School and Work

    Jada Hunter, North Carolina Central University; Tryan L McMickens, North Carolina Central University; Ashleigh F Costley, North Carolina Central University; Christopher Walls, North Carolina Central University; Celicia Coleman, North Carolina Central University
    WED 8:00 AM – 9:15 AM, Marriott RM # 2111 Studio 5
    Using experiential knowledge, a panel of Black higher education graduate students will describe their perspectives integrating graduate school in an HBCU higher education program with a fully online modality coupled with full and part-time work commitments. This session will help our profession learn more about the experiences of Black higher education graduate students because we know little about the experiences of Black graduate students matriculating at master’s programs in higher education and student affairs administration at Historically Black Graduate Programs.

  • Creating Spaces and Places for Neurodivergent People in Student Affairs

    Emily V Rasch, Southern Methodist University
    MON 9:15 AM – 10:00 AM, Marriott RM # 2158 Studio 8
    The neurodivergent movement has emerged as a trending issue in higher education. This session focuses on the ways that higher education can be a more equitable and accessible place for neurodivergent people. The presenter uses their lived experience as a neurodivergent person to emphasize the need for neurodiversity-related conversations to happen in higher education. In doing so, participants are offered practical solutions to create inclusive, adaptable spaces and places for neurodivergent students and student affairs professionals on their own campuses.

  • Preventing & Responding To Online Harassment on College Campuses

    Virginia L Byrne, Morgan State University; Juana Hollingsworth, Morgan State University
    TUE 1:45 PM -2:45 PM, Marriott RM #2205 Studio 9
    Students use social media for activism, creative expression, and relationship building. However, an unintended consequence is the possibility of experiencing online harassment as both the victim and the bystander. In this hands-on session, we address the climate fueling a culture of online harassment among college students. Additionally, we review 12 steps for developing policies and practices that can be implemented across college campuses to respond to and prevent online harassment.

  • Fostering DEIB Online: A Partnership Between Two Institutions

    Janet Athanasiou, American Public University System; Michelle Reese, Rio Salado College
    MON 4:00 – 5:00 PM, Marriott RM #2275 Galerie 6
    This session discusses the partnership between two online institutions focused on providing underserved students the opportunity to obtain a higher education degree. The partnership evolved into a shared commitment of promoting ideas of diversity, equity, inclusion & belonging (DEIB) and brought about quarterly webinars featuring student panelists talking about their experiences with DEIB at each of their respective institutions. These discussions help to show underrepresented students on both campuses that their institutions care about them and are listening to concerns.
