The People Behind the Law ($225, to include cost of course book)
Catherine Cocks, D. Stafford & Associates, Beth Devonshire, D. Stafford & Associates, & Ann Todd, D. Stafford & Associates
Every law has an origin story-Jeanne Clery was murdered, Bunny Sandler was denied position, Dixon peacefully protested, and the ADA came from local movements. Even FERPA has a story. This pre-con will examine the origin of key higher education laws, the current state of the law, and how compliance regulations impact our students and practice on status, role, and identity.

Morning Pre-Cons

Choose Your Own Pathway: Implementing a Restorative-Oriented Student Conduct Process to Increase the Engagement, Education, and Experience of Students
Tony Miller, Jr., University of Montevallo
Too often students view sanctions as pre-determined punishments for violating policy. The Pathway Plan model allows students to develop their own learning experience and identify which pathway projects will be most beneficial to them. This presentation will teach student conduct professionals how to implement this new model to enhance students' experience and assist in shifting the connotations of their offices.

Afternoon Pre-Cons

Equitable & Inclusive Practices in Student Conduct Work
Sarah Shupp, Lebanon Valley College
Dr. Kyle Williams
Dr. James Lorello, UNC Charlotte
Student conduct work originated from a lack of inclusive and equitable student discipline practices as illustrated in the Dixon v. Alabama case. This pre-conference session will cover the historical foundations of equity in student conduct work, examine systems of power and privilege on campus, and strategies for implementing inclusive and equitable practices in student conduct work.

Focusing on History, Emotions, and Fact Finding: Trauma-Informed Techniques in Student Conduct
Ali Martin Scoufield, Cleveland State University
Laura Cilia, La Salle University
Student Conduct work often focuses on the who, what, where, when, why, and how. However, these questions and an emphasis on linear interviews and timelines cause challenges for those who have experienced trauma, which honestly is most of us. This interactive workshop defines trauma-informed practice and engages participants in the process of infusing trauma-informed techniques into their work.
