  1. Another great discussion! Eager to hear more about how you stand corrected next week. Would like to have heard more about the connection between Postman, the value of higher education, and the necessity of student affairs / development.

    Can you post a link for the ACSD webinar on Friday?

  2. Patrick, you have asked the million dollar question. If we can’t connect to the primary mission of the institution and the academy at large, then I would say that Student Affairs is an appropriate place to trim. At that point, it becomes a consideration of key services, not necessarily opportunities that are legitimately a part of student learning.

    Here is the link: http://www.acsd.org/learning/webinars/

    I’m not sure if you need to be an ACSD member to join in. They post after the fact, so at least a stream will be available (if you’re not a member).

    Thanks for joining us!
