Conduct and conduct-adjacent practitioners fill unique roles in supporting students during times of upheaval and unrest. This webinar will focus on how to listen to support, how to help students dialogue successfully, and how to advise students to engage in social action meaningfully and safely. We will also spend time discussing how the effects of current incidents are manifesting on campus, particularly in behavior, and how to address those behaviors through your role. Finally, we will discuss how to support students on all sides of an issue.

*Please note, that the 12pm - 1pm EST event time is correct.  It was misstated in the original email.*
