Dr. John Wesley Lowery, from the Department of Student Affairs in Higher Education, presented three sessions at the recent 2009 NASPA annual conference in Seattle, Washington.

Lowery’s presentations focused on the Clery Act, student conduct policies and procedures, and a public policy update. Lowery’s presentation, “Partnering for Compliance: The Clery Act and Student Affairs,” focused on the core requirements of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, recent amendments to the act, and the key opportunities for student affairs divisions to contribute to institutional compliance. Lowery presented with Dr. Mike Dannells on their study of changes in student conduct policies and practices over the past thirty years.

Lowery also presented a public policy and case law update with W. Scott Lewis. Lowery focused on key student affairs implications of the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 and recent changes to the regulations for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.

NASPA: Student Affairs in Higher Education is one of the leading professional associations for student affairs in higher education. More than 4,100 student affairs practitioners, graduate preparation program faculty members, and graduate students attended the national conference this year.
