Contact: Christina Chapple
HAMMOND – Student conduct officers and student affairs administrators from throughout the state will gather at Southeastern Louisiana University April 10 for the Louisiana Judicial Affairs Conference.
The annual conference, scheduled for 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the War Memorial Student Union, will showcase best practices for creating education experiences to combat student misconduct and offer techniques for identifying and helping students with troubling behaviors.
Registration is $120. The conference is open to all student affairs and academic administrators as well as faculty. The registration form is available for download online at www.selu.edu/admin/jud_affairs or from the Southeastern Office of Judicial Affairs, (985) 549-2213.
“The conference assists collegiate administrators in keeping their fingers on the pulse of changes related to student discipline,” said Antoinette Alack, Southeastern’s coordinator of Judicial Affairs. “In the post-Virginia Tech era, campus administrators must implement proactive approaches that identify troubled students before their behavior becomes disruptive.”
Gary Pavela, an authority on academic ethics who teaches in the honors program at the University of Maryland and writes law and policy newsletters widely distributed in the United States and Canada, will lead workshops on identifying troubled students and crisis response.
Renaldo L. Stowers, an associate general counsel for the University of North Texas System and former Texas senior assistant attorney general, will provide updates on criminal background checks for students, federal regulations, FERPA and the Cleary Act.
