What to Expect

The fourth annual LVAIC professional development workshop for senior student affairs personnel will be a day with Thomas E. Miller and Barbara E. Bender on the subject “Promoting Reasonable Expectations: Aligning Student and Institutional Views of the College Experience.”

It will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Friday, November 18, at Lafayette College’s Pfenning Alumni Center.

Miller and Bender are coauthors of a book with the same title as the workshop (Jossey-Bass, 2005). It identifies strategies for “addressing the disjunctions between expectation and reality” in student views of what college should be like and what it is.

Miller is dean of students at the University of South Florida. Bender is associate dean of the graduate school at Rutgers University.

Those interested should complete a registration form from the Office of Student Affairs and return it by November 11.
