3:15pm4:15pmFaculty Just Don’t Understand: Tips for Working with Faculty to Ensure Consistent Messaging and Rule Administration
TNH 2.140 (Wright Classroom)

Student Affairs professionals enforce student rules that they sometimes cannot influence. At times, faculty: 1. Do not understand the realities of day-to-day rule administration; 2. Lack knowledge about the system in which new rules operate; 3. Are reluctant to take responsibility or enforce unpopular rules. This discussion is led by two full-time law faculty members who recently served as an academic dean/interim dean and as the dean of students. They will discuss these challenges from all angles and provide an interactive, open, and honest dialogue to share lessons learned and concrete tips for developing a successful working relationship between faculty and other administrators to enhance student success.
