Strategies to Manage Today’s Pressures 

The past five years have taken a toll on student affairs. So much so that recent NASPA reports have indicated that although 94% of student affairs professionals believe they make a positive difference for students, only 61% plan to remain in the field. The stress, crisis management responsibilities and expectations to fulfill multiple positions due to vacancies have led to burnout.

How do you help your staff manage the stress and workloads of today’s student affairs work while also balancing a healthy lifestyle?

Join our presenters, Dr. Grant Azdell – Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students at Randolph-Macon College, and Dr. Peggy Crowe – the Director of the Counseling Center & Student Accessibility Resource Center at Western Kentucky University, who will explore the stressful nature of student affairs work within higher education, its impact on student affairs administrators and staff, and strategies to respond effectively.

Learn how to “care and feed” your staff by figuring out what motivates individuals to do good work. Identify the things that stand in the way of healthy lifestyles and take into consideration the work standards of younger professionals.

This online training is designed for all student affairs staff and administrators, from seasoned professionals to entry level staff.
