Title: How to Master the Art of Student Requests Using a Team-Based Exception Request Process
Lead Presenter: Justine Roades
Date: October 08, 2021    Time: 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Room: Jr. Ballroom B, DECC
Abstract: Do you struggle to determine the 'right' way to handle student requests for policy exceptions? Is the effort to balance sensitivity to students' dilemmas with safeguarding academic standards causing you to burn out? Does making unilateral decisions feel like a burden? We feel your pain! This presentation will explore how shifting from an individual decision-making model to a team adjudication process creates a more fair and equitable experience for students; reduces tension between students, advisors, and faculty; and keeps everyone aligned on the department's mission. Through the use of scenarios and small group discussions, you will consider the needs of yourself and your department. You will leave with practical, actionable steps that can be integrated into your program quickly and easily.
