Rick Trietley, vice president for Student Affairs, and Dr. Paula Scraba, O.S.F., of the School of Education, represented St. Bonaventure University at the 2016 ASACCU Conference (Association for Student Affairs at Catholic Colleges and Universities), July 18-22.
St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wis., was the host institution and participants experienced Norbertine “radical hospitality” and an invigorating conference theme, “The Way I See It: Catholic higher education through the eyes of our students.”
St. Norbert College, which overlooks the Fox River, has been the summer camp of the Green Bay Packers for 65 years. The team adopted their colors from St. Norbert College. Consequently an evening at Lambeau Field was part of the conference.
Trietley was officially welcomed and introduced as a first-term ASACCU board member at the Mission Integration Awards and Association luncheon.
Scraba gave the presentation “Embrace the Future: Student Leadership Programs through Inclusive Sports Models,” which addressed St. Bonaventure student-developed inclusive sports partnerships between universities, schools and community agencies. Models from St. Bonaventure University, Niagara University and Canisius College demonstrated student initiated community engagement partnerships with pride and passion through student resources and surveys from a Senior Forum Special Olympics Program.
The conference program included keynotes from Dr. Tim Clydesdale and Dr. Kerry Cronin. Clydesdale, professor of sociology at The College of New Jersey, presented on his research on the post-high school transition: “The First Year Out: Understanding American Teens after High School.”
Cronin is associate director of the Lonergan Institute at Boston College and the Faculty Fellow in BC’s Center for Students. St. Bonaventure’s new Agape Latte program was proposed by students and staff who attended Cronin’s presentation last year.
Scraba noted that Neumann University in Aston, Pa., will host the 2017 ASACCU Conference July 18-21, 2017. Next year’s theme will be “Journey for the Dream: Catholic higher education as a compass for students.” Presentations from all disciplines and programs on campus are welcome. St. Bonaventure faculty and staff who would like more information about the 2017 conference should contact Trietley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
