Responding to Student Conduct Concerns
A part of the “Advise the Advisor” series
Presented by: Shawna Bava
Thursday, May 30, 2013
Shawna Bava returned to provide Part II of the Student Conduct Concerns presentation hosted in April. The intent of this informative and engaging session was to examine how we work together and to discuss how we respond to student conduct in our current roles. Shawna shared her frame of reference for how she responds to student conduct concerns and allowed participants to reflect on their own scope, role, training, skill level, experience, comfort level and preferences for addressing student conduct concerns.
Participants discussed scenarios within small groups and were asked to respond to the following questions: What is your response? What would you do? Shawna encouraged participants to be specific and thoughtful about what you would say, how you would respond and what resources you would engage. The small group discussion fed back to the larger group and Shawna incorporated her response to these same concerns. This created a collaborative learning environment to discuss various strategies and resources to support us in our roles with students.
If you missed the session, or would like to learn more Shawna recommended the following resource: “Reframing Campus Conflict” which is edited by “Jennifer Meyer Schrage and Nancy Geist Giacomini.
