The IUP Residential Living staff, led by Residence Directors Adam Jones and Caitlin Codding and Graduate Assistant Diane Eshelman, hosted a conference for residential student leaders from the 14 PASSHE schools on Saturday, January 28, 2012. With 96 participants in attendance, this conference provided all involved with the opportunity to share knowledge through presentations and networking with peers.
The welcome address was given by Mike Lemasters, executive director of Housing, Residential Living, and Dining and associate dean of Students. John Mueller, faculty member from Student Affairs in Higher Education, gave the keynote address, “The Residential Student Leader at the Crossroads of Diversity and Programming.”
Our goal is to continue this conference and establish a tradition, with a new PASSHE school hosting the event each year.
