Dear ASCA 2019 Conference Attendee,

We are delighted to welcome you to the 31st annual ASCA Conference!

This year’s theme of “Navigating the Journey” reminds us that our professional
field is, in many ways, fluid. Thus, we will look to reflect on the currents that we
have created, the journey we are currently on, and work to map new routes for
those who follow. We will work to adapt to the changing needs of our community
members by assuring that neither ourselves nor our processes become stagnant.

On behalf of the ASCA Board of Directors and the Annual Conference planning
committee, we are pleased to have you in attendance and are thankful for the
investments that you and your supporting employers have made to have you join
us. This year, more than 900 student conduct professionals will come together to
share in more than 150 educational sessions. The presenters and volunteers who
lend their time, talents, and expertise are the backbone of this association and
conference and we are so thankful for their contributions.

Melissa Harris-Perry, our keynote speaker, will kick off our time together on
Wednesday evening and we invite you to spend time in the ballroom foyer
mingling and catching up with colleagues afterward. Educational sessions then
take place Thursday, Friday, and Saturday with the conclusion of the conference at
the Saturday evening banquet.

Thank you for your support of ASCA and we hope you have a wonderful
conference experience.

                                    of the Anna Julia Cooper Center, whose mission is to advance
                                    justice through intersectional scholarship. She is also founder
                                    of the innovative bi-partisan program, Wake the Vote.
                                    Together with her husband, James Perry, she is a principal of
                                    Perry Partnership, offering both political and private consulting.

                                    trains political candidates, deepens democratic engagement,

                                       For more than a decade, Harris-Perry has contributed to
                                       American public life through her distinct combination of
                                       scholarly analysis and extraordinary wisdom applied to the
                                       analysis of race, gender, politics, and power. Her writing has
                                       appeared in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Chicago
                                       Tribune, and many other print and digital venues. She was
                                       among the initial cohort of writers for TheRoot.com and
                                       authored highly regarded columns for both Essence and The
Nation. Currently, she is editor-at- large of Elle.com and a contributing editor at The Nation.

Committed to diversifying American journalism and mentoring emerging public voices, Professor
Harris-Perry has developed and implemented innovative mentoring efforts including the Elle.com

She is the author of the award-winning Barbershops, Bibles, and BET: Everyday Talk and Black
Political Thought, and Sister Citizen: Shame, Stereotypes, and Black Women in America. She
hosted the award winning television show “Melissa Harris-Perry” from 2012-2016 on weekend
mornings on MSNBC and in 2016, she won the Hillman
Prize for broadcast journalism.

Harris-Perry received her B.A. degree in English from Wake Forest University and her Ph.D. degree
in political science from Duke University. She also studied theology at Union Theological Seminary
in New York. Harris-Perry previously served on the faculty of the University of Chicago, Princeton
University, and Tulane University. She serves on several boards and award committees and is a

Melissa, James, and their two daughters live in North Carolina raising free range chick- ens and

                        conflict resolution, and recommendations for partnerships, policy, and practice for campuses seeking to
                        shift from the traditional, transactional conduct model to adaptable, just practices.

                        Asperger’s Syndrome. These students bring with them social, behavioral and communication challenges
                        that may be disruptive or misunderstood by the community, leading to allegations of misconduct.

                        these students.

                        is relegated to a handful of individuals but fails to consider the broader community’s insights. Through
                        well-known case studies, the presenter will highlight critical threat assessment lessons that are being lost
                        with time, as well as the impact of living in and/or serving a generation defined by threat assessment.
                        This workshop focuses on the role of behavioral intervention teams, campus-wide training, and innovative
                        approaches to assessing perceived threats. Participants will receive training materials and develop
                        strategies to involve the entire community in harm reduction.

                       Organizational hazing investigations are difficult. They are often filled with lies and half-truths. Cutting
                       through the veil of silence can be difficult, but it is not impossible. It requires knowledgeable investigators
                       who understand the nuances of hazing. This session will provide participants with strategies aimed at

                       Despite growing diversity in higher education, institutions still utilize uniform processes for addressing
                       allegations of misconduct. Based on a study of nearly 1,500 students at 30 institutions, this program helps
                       participants understand how students’ perceptions of their conduct experiences -- including the fairness,
                       legitimacy, and educational value of systems -- can vary significantly based on their race and gender.

                       As cannabis legislation changes, so do the needs of post-secondary education administrators. As we
                       develop policy and procedures, we must consider the implication and impacts on separate campus
                       communities. This session provides space for small-group discussion on areas of concern such as

                     With the rapid influx of international students who have different understandings of academic integrity,
                     the already multi-layered task of adjudicating these incidents has become more challenging. How do

                     adjudication techniques and assess the effectiveness and potential pitfalls of their use. In addition, the
                     influence of outside constituencies on organization conduct will be examined. Case studies will be used
