A partnership between Highland Community College Student Services and Southwest Plains Regional Service Center has resulted in recognition by a nationally-affiliated organization, NASPA, made of student affairs administrators in higher education.  The combined efforts of Highland Community College and Southwest Plains to develop a customized, digital observation process for recognizing quality service in an educational setting has generated interest across the region.

The collaborative team was recently informed of the acceptance of two proposals for presentation at this major, dual-region conference:

The NASPA conference will be held in St. Louis, MO at the Historic Union Station on November 15-17, 2016.  Dr. Susan Jenkins, Research & Development Consultant at SWPRSC will accompany Dr. Cheryl Rasmussen, VP of Student Services at Highland Community College and her team to St. Louis.  The combined team will represent higher education and community colleges in Kansas and have the opportunity to experience other innovative partnerships and research from across the Midwest.
