It's not too late to register...yet!

Passing on a great opportunity at this year's NASPA Western Regional Conference. This is an opportunity for all those in higher education.

The "Praxis Makes Perfect" Pre-Conference Research Institute at the NASPA Western Regional Conference is designed for you! You'll have the opportunity to share your research interests with fellow scholar-practitioners, set and expand your research goals, discover strategies to integrate research into your work, and learn about innovative ways to create and circulate your research.

We will discuss: What does it mean to be a student affairs scholar-practitioner? How do we best engage the "scholar" part of our identities with our already full schedules? Are you asking yourself these questions with regularity?

To check out the full agenda, outstanding faculty for the institute, and our learning outcomes, please visit our website:

Let's talk Noncogs

Hi all, hope your Wednesday is treating you well!

A new post is up over at The NonCog Blog.....What students are saying about noncogs! In my research related to noncognitive characterisitics, I had the pleasure of speaking with students who provide a great deal of insight and understanding into the exact ways noncognitive characteristics were playing out in their day to day. Today I'll share with you...what the shared with me conce…

Let's talk Noncogs

The most frequent question we receive is, what is/how are you defining "Noncognitive Characteristc/variable?" Well, go ahead and follow this link to The NonCog Blog to find out :) Definition: Personal attributes and characteristics “relating to adjustment, motivation, and student perceptions, rather than the traditional verbal and quantitative (often called cognitive) areas typically measured by standardized tests.”

Did I mention it's free? Noncognitive Characteristics and Persistence

The topic? Noncognitive characteristics and their role in student persistence.

Registration available THIS Wednesday...even better, registration is free to the first 50 registrants!

[08/14/15]   Hi all,

With the school year approaching, I'd like to do something a little bit different. I thought it would be fun to ask people what they want to learn about regarding noncognitive characteristic development for the students you work with.

If you could take just 5 minutes and tell me what is your #1 question about utilizing noncognitive characteristics development for the students you work with....A) I would GREATLY appreciate it and B) most importantly, I'll be able to use the information to gear my upcoming emails and discussions toward topics you specifically want to know more about.

Here’s the link:

Thanks Everybody

[07/15/15]   **UPDATE**

The 10 schools we will be working with are a mix of community colleges and 4-year institutions in 5 states. The persistence curriculum we are developing will incorporate campus specific services and opportunities...while also being uniform so the impact of the program can be assessed!

We love this work!

[07/14/15]   We are pleased to announce that we have recently signed a partnership agreement to provide our Second-year Experience program, PLUGGED-IN, to 10 colleges and universities!
