On Wednesday, April 1, 2020 Dr. Vincent Nix and I had the opportunity to share some of our thoughts about neoliberalism and how this dynamic impacts the field of student affairs in higher education through the Student Affairs Assessment Leaders Structured Conversation series. Our webinar presentation was called Unpacking and Resisting Neoliberalism in Student Affairs Assessment.
There was a total of 185 people registered for the webinar, which is among the highest number for any SAAL Structured Conversation. Additionally, the moderators of the webinar said that the attendees were engaging with each other in conversation about the topic more than they had seen on any other SAAL webinar. For me, this was a clear indication that student affairs professionals have many thoughts on the topic AND we need to be creating more spaces to have conversations about neoliberalism.
