Dr. John Wesley Lowery, associate professor in Student Affairs in Higher Education, presented four sessions at the recent Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education annual conference in Chicago on March 6–10, 2010. Dr. Lowery’s presentations focused on the Clery Act, the sit-in movement of the early 1960s, student spirituality, and a campus safety legislative update.

Dr. Lowery’s presentation, “Campus Safety and Compliance: Student Affairs’ Role,” 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. Dr. Lowery presented with Karen Boyd on their study of “The Legacy of the Sit-in Movement and Student Rights.” Dr. Lowery also presented with Chris Gill in a presentation designed to introduce participants to the history of student spirituality in higher education and theories which help student affairs professionals understand spiritual development in the college years. Dr. Lowery also presented a campus safety legislative update as part of the Campus Safety Knowledge Community’s preconference workshop.

Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education (NASPA ) is one of the leading professional associations for student affairs in higher education. More than 4,800 student affairs practitioners, graduate preparation program faculty members, and graduate students attended the national conference this year.
