ASCA Chats


During this time of uncertainty, flexibility, and approaching our work in unprecedented ways, ASCA recognizes the value in remaining connected to our friends and colleagues for idea sharing, problem solving, and maintaining a sense of connection.

To bring us together, ASCA invited members to participate in five weeks of twice daily discussions on a wide variety of topics that have become parts of the conversation as campuses shift their daily operations, campus and student services, and more at an unbelievably rapid pace. None of us have all the answers and these informal sessions were not intended to be webinars with deliverables. Instead, we offered a safe place to engage in conversations with peers about the nuances of the crisis at hand and how it affects our work and our lives.

Over the course of the five weeks, 40 ASCA Chats sessions were held and nearly 400 participants joined the discussions, many of which were captured in the form of wrap-up blogs as indicated by the links below.
