“Well-being in Higher Education: Raising Literacy and Advancing the Conversation” is a series of free, virtual events taking place February 26 - March 1, 2024. Over 20 associations are collaborating with a goal to raise the literacy for well-being among higher education professionals and to advance conversation among colleagues on and across campuses.

The landscape of traditional student conduct practice is one that is highly legalistic and adversarial in nature, despite our shared mission of educational and developmental outcomes. And because the majority of student conduct administrators do not have formal legal training, the nature of our work can lead to exhaustion, burnout, and even trauma. This workshop, grounded in evidence from the literature and emerging research, will offer practitioners specific strategies in addressing student conduct work that supports wellness in one's personal and professional lives and invite participants to create their own plan to address workplace stressors.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will:

  • Identify the reasons that differentiate the stressful nature of student conduct work from other student affairs areas
  • Explain why student conduct administrators may be particularly susceptible to mental health concerns
  • Formulate a customized strategy to address the specific stressors in one's student conduct work
