Dr. John Wesley Lowery, associate professor of Student Affairs in Higher Education, traveled recently to the University of Louisville to present at the Association for Student Conduct Administration’s 2011 Donald D. Gehring Academy for Student Conduct Administration.

Dr. Lowery has been actively involved in the association and the academy throughout his professional career. He has presented at every Gehring Academy for the past decade and half.

This year, Dr. Lowery was the coordinator and a faculty member for the Training Institute at the Academy, which offers an intensive, four-day, competency-based curriculum intended for student conduct and conflict resolution administrators new to the field as well as for seasoned student affairs professionals new to the area of student conduct and conflict resolution. Participants explore critical topics each day, including model policies and due process, laws and mandates, governance, forms of adjudication, case preparation, information management, student development theory, and personal/professional ethics.

Dr. Lowery was also a faculty member for the Mid-Level and Senior Programs, where he presented on federal mandates which directly impact student conduct administration, including FERPA and the Clery Act.
