Since the early 1990s, the study of college student leadership has fundamentally changed how colleges and universities design, implement, and assess the effectiveness of leadership development programs on campus. The emphasis on the development of leadership skills and abilities in college students has resulted in the proliferation of college student leadership workshops, programs, conferences, courses, and entire departments dedicated to leadership development. On this episode of Student Affairs Live, host Heather Shea Gasser connects with the founders, principal investigators, and campus users of the MSL, Dr. Susan Komives, Dr. Julie Owen, Dr. John Dugan, and Dr. Lesley-Ann Brown-Henderson, to discuss the role that this study plays in helping campuses maximize their leadership development initiatives.

On today's Admissions Live, Jen Doak-Mathews joins the show to discuss the advantages to understanding the next generation and as well pitfalls of stereotyping.
In both 2012 and 2013, I traveled to Japan to explore, play lots of video games, and eat lots of delicious food. Apparently those two trips weren’t enough though, because… I’m going back on May 12. To be fair, my girlfriend’s never been there before, so it’ll be a new experience for her! Being the type of person who likes to find the best ways to do things, I actually discovered a lot of resources and travel hacks that allowed me to travel quite cheaply (even though Japan is one of the most expensive countries in the world). In this episode, I’ll share my experiences from the first two trips, along with many of the money-saving travel tips I’ve learned along the ways. Whether or not you want to go to Japan in particular, I think you’ll find it useful! This episode also marks the start of what I’m unofficially deeming Japan Month. Why? Well, in addition to this episode of the podcast, there will also be three videos coming out during May on a challenge I’ve given myself: To learn as much...

Read more about the event. http://www.case.org/Conferences_and_Training/SMC15/Program.html The Baby Boomers are self-righteous and optimistic. Gen X are your misunderstood latch-key kids.

Also Facebook is dying and you should really be on Yik Yak now. Let's have some real talk on what ties all generations together, what groups of people aren't typically considered in trend pieces, and how to read between the lines of the "X is dead" article. Discuss how to find the worthwhile pieces of knowledge in the fire hose of information on generations and tools, and figure out what works for the groups of humans you're trying to reach.

Ten years ago, Stanford built and began using the Relationship Model, a behavioral segmentation of all alumni.

Bring home a new lens to look at your own prospect discovery, targeting, marketing, program development efforts, and perhaps even see how social might move (or already is moving) the needle in ways you never imagined.
