    • A welcome from the Acting Associate Vice President of Enrolment Management & Learner Services <br />Dr. Dean Stetson<br />Lethbridge College<br />“PARTNERSHIPS AND POSSIBILITIES”<br />I cannot think of a more timely and appropriate theme for the 2009 ASSC as we are bombarded daily by local, national and international media telling us about crisis after crisis impacting our very existence. This gloom and doom can lead to a state of fear which can result in entrenchment and stagnation. Services for students in our colleges and universities can provide the leadership, as we have in the past, for an alternative to this state of fear in our institutions be reframing the situation from crises to challenges and possibilities. I believe that we can best address these challenges by creating partnerships that are focused on possibilities that will benefit our learners through a culture of collaboration.<br />Welcome to Lethbridge College and the 2009 Alberta Services for Students Conference as we join together to accept the challenges and possibilities our learners face today and in the future!<br />Dr. Dean Stetson<br />Acting Associate Vice President of Enrolment Management and Learner Services<br />KEYNOTE SPEAKERS<br />Alvin Law<br />Alvin is not only a completely independent, remarkably successful professional speaker, but proof that out of nothing can arise one of the most inspiring stories you will ever witness.<br />Alvin attended regular schools in a day when handicapped children were relegated to institutions or at best, schools that segregated them from the normal students. Remarkable teachers saw his potential and worked with the family to encourage that potential. <br />In 1981, he took a hiatus from disc-jockeying in FM Radio and joined a company who, through a federal grant of the International Year of Disabled Persons, conducted awareness seminars in hundreds of schools across the province of Alberta, Canada. Thus began his adventures in the field of motivational speaking. After working for the Saskatchewan Abilities Council, an Easter Seals agency, he ran, unsuccessfully, for a seat in the Provincial Legislature. He also worked in advertising, public relations and the civil service of his beloved home province. In 1985, his pride and joy, Vance, was born. In 1988 he quit a lucrative government job, fulfilled a long-time dream and created AJL Communications Ltd. His career as a full-time professional speaker was born.<br />Since 1976, Alvin has played a direct role in raising over $150,000,000 for charity. <br />Peggy Gizen<br />Peggy lives what she teaches, and practices what she preaches! Peggy’s life journey has taught her lessons, (although sometimes difficult), that have made her develop a strong belief that life can be exactly what you make of it. Her candor and enthusiasm is infectious - instantly making workshop participants feel comfortable and at ease. Peggy readily shares her wisdom to help attendees live the life they were meant to live; empowering them to make the right choices. Personal empowerment and a more indepth understanding of personality types enhances team building, ultimately leading to more successful work environments.<br />“Only YOU possess the power to make YOUR life extraordinary!”<br />Conference Schedule at a Glance<br />Tuesday, May 19<br />Registration…………………………………………………………………………………………………………4:00-9:00pm<br />Wine & Cheese…………………………………………………………………………………………………...7:00-10:00pm<br />Wednesday, May 20<br />Breakfast……………………………………………………………………………………………………………..7:30-8:30am<br />Registration continues ………………………………………………………………………………….......8:00-9:00am<br />Welcome……………………………………………………………………………………………………….......8:45-9:00am<br />Keynote Speaker…………………………………………………………………………………………........9:00-10:15am<br />Refreshment Break……………………………………………………………………………………..........10:15-10:45am<br />Concurrent Sessions 1………………………………………………………………………………….........10:45-12:00pm<br />Lunch……………………………………………………………………………………………………………........12:00-1:15pm<br />Concurrent Session 2……………………………………………………………………………………........1:15-2:30pm<br />Refreshment Break………………………………………………………………………………………........2:30-3:00pm<br />Concurrent Session 3……………………………………………………………………………………........3:00-4:15pm<br />Fun Sessions…………………………………………………………………………………………………........4:30-6:00pm<br />Cocktails, Awards Banquet & Dance…………………………………………………………….........6:30pm<br />Thursday, May 21<br />Breakfast……………………………………………………………………………………………………….......7:30-8:45am<br />Registration continues ………………………………………………………………………………….......8:00-9:00am<br />Concurrent Session 4……………………………………………………………………………………........9:00-10:15am<br />Refreshment Break……………………………………………………………………………………..........10:15-10:45am<br />Concurrent Sessions 5………………………………………………………………………………….........10:45-12:00pm<br />Lunch…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….......12:00-1:15pm<br />Concurrent Session 6……………………………………………………………………………………........1:15-2:30pm<br />Refreshment Break………………………………………………………………………………………........2:30-3:00pm<br />Fun Sessions…………………………………………………………………………………………………........3:00-4:30pm<br />Theme Night Banquet & Entertainment.……………………………………………………….......6:30pm<br />Friday, May 22<br />Breakfast ………………………………………………………………………………………………………......7:30-8:45am<br />Annual General Meeting……………………………………………………………………………….......9:00-9:30am<br />Closing Keynote…………………………………………………………………………………………….......9:30-10:30am<br />Institutional Insignia Exchange – Banner Parade …..…………………………………………… 10:30-11:30am<br />Closing Remarks & Presentation of the Walking Stick………………………………............1130-12:00pm<br />Concurrent Session 1<br />Wednesday May 20, 2009<br />10:45-12:00pm<br />ASAPA: Canada Student Loan Update<br />Canada Student Loans Policies & Procedures <br />CSLP Staff<br />Canada Student Loans Program staff will present an update and an overview on the Canada student loan portfolio for the 2009-2010 year. There will also be discussion on upcoming policy changes, operational updates and any areas under review. There will also be time for Q&A.<br />AE&I: Part 1 Alberta Employment & Immigration Updates<br />AE&I Staff<br />This will be a policies and procedures update from the department of Alberta Employment & Immigration AE&I. Updates will include new directions priorities following the creation of the new ministry and how this will affect Income Support for Learners, Skills Investment Bursaries. <br />Birds of a Feather: Counseling <br />TBA<br />Birds of a Feather: Accessibilities <br />TBA<br />Marketing Student Services 101<br />Sarah CoffinLaura Manuel<br />Communications CoordinatorCommunications Coordinator<br />University of AlbertaUniversity of Alberta<br />This session will reveal what marketing and communication strategies have worked and not worked for CAPS: Your U of A Career Centre. This session will get student service professionals thinking about how they can attract more students to their service area. Topics will include: communication strategies, messages, tactics, evaluation and unique ideas. <br />Residence Life – On-line Security Reporting System<br />George WoofJo-Anne Wilson<br />Special ConstableResidence Life<br />Town of NantonLethbridge College<br />We would like to introduce security and residence staff to an on-line reporting system that is currently being used by the Residence Department at LC. This program will eventually be used by the Security Department as well, and is used extensively at colleges and universities across the United States. Student Resident Assistants use this program to log all shift events, from lock outs to fire alarms to noise complaints. We are then able to take this information and find valuable statistics.<br />Simulating the College Experience: Creating a Successful Transition to College<br />Lorraine LeishmanClayton Crawshaw<br />InstructorInstructor<br />Lethbridge CollegeLethbridge College<br />The Orientation to College Learning (Lethbridge College circa 1993) was originally designed as a week-long program to help those unfamiliar with college to find things, get book and be exposed to a bit of general study information. Within a year, the just- before-term course was 4 weeks long and soon was a credit course. This course’s longevity is, I believe, largely due to the simulation structure hidden in the course. Students in the course are soon embroiled in an active learning culture designed to stimulate the pressures of a full-course load and its realities. Please do come if you’re considering designing something to “put students through” before they hit their “real” courses, or if you have an existing program to which you’d like to add stimulation. <br />Concurrent Session 2<br />Wednesday, May 20, 2009<br />1:15-2:30 pm<br />ASAPA: Alberta Students Finance Policies & Procedures Update<br />Alberta Students Finance Staff<br />Alberta Advanced Education staff will be on hand to provide updates on policies and procedures and new initiatives for the 2009-2010 academic year.

Using feminist and mindfulness-based practices, this interactive session will focus on the practical ways you can support students dealing with these issues. Emphasis will be placed on relationship building, authenticity and empathy in deepening understanding and compassion. <br />Deafness: A Guide for Student Services<br />Chris Dodd <br />Technical Support<br />University of Alberta<br />Unplug your ears and step into the deaf world. This session will explore services, technology, and tips on interaction and communication in regards to students who are deaf or hard of hearing. Taught by someone who is deaf themselves, this light-hearted session is sure to be both entertaining and informative. There will even be an opportunity to learn sign language!<br />Learning Disabilities and Mental Health: Understanding Diverse Needs<br />Kelly CowanDr. S. Lal Mattu<br />Provisional PsychologistPsychologist<br />University of CalgaryThird Academy<br />The proposed presentation will include an outline of the mental health issues commonly experienced by students with learning disabilities including; anxiety, depression, peer victimization and negative self-concept. This outline will also include some of the interventions and strategies used to mediate the mental health concerns within this population. <br />The Learning Café: Helping Students Advance, Prepare, Excel<br />Lynda Duval<br />Learning Café Coordinator/Learning Assistant Specialist<br />Lethbridge College<br />The Learning Assistance Centre at Lethbridge College provides a variety of learning services to students and faculty. This session will provide you with an overview of the Learning Café and it services.

The term Helicopter Parent, coined by many student Services Staff around the world, is used lovingly to describe their fascinating hovering capabilities. The Millennials, and their side kick parent(s), pose a few very interesting challenges to our organizations and our best practices. This “bizarre love triangle” requires a special touch and that is exactly what we will discover throughout the course of this workshop. <br />Feminist Supervision: Considerations for Best Practices<br />Judy Chew<br />Director of Training<br />University of Calgary<br />This workshop will address the central questions, “What is feminist supervision? What do feminist supervisors do?” Using mini lectures, group discussion, and experimental exercises, participants will examine the state of the art feminist identity development, feminist ethics, and professional and ethical challenges to promoting feminist supervision. This workshop is supported by a professional Development Grant (2008) through the Canadian University and College Counselling Association. <br />Keeping Hope Alive: Supporting Success in the Mature Learner<br />Elaine GruningerMonica HintonKarla-Ace Edvardson<br />Service WorkerCounsellorAlumna- Child and Youth Care<br />Lethbridge CollegeLethbridge CollegeLethbridge College<br />This presentation will explore the reasons why adult learners return to school and how professionals in students services can improve retention of adult learners success by nurturing and supporting their hope. Hope is the power that allows us to step out and try. Hope arouses as nothing else the passion for the impossible. Hope is not the dream but a way of making the dream come true. In this presentation we will examine the needs of adult learners and how the concept of hope impacts a learners feeling of self efficacy and locus of control and supports success and achievement. We will also examine what to do when the lack of hope results in feeling of being overwhelmed and powerless. These feelings can result in depression, feelings of victimization and feeling of helplessness. The lack of hope is a major detriment to learner retention and success. How can we help to turn hopelessness to hopeful?<br />Forming Partnerships with Faith Communities<br />Chaplain Erin PhillipsChaplain Mac De Waal<br />Chaplain Ecumenical Campus MinistryCampus Chaplain<br />Lethbridge College & University of LethbridgePortage College – Lac La Biche Campus<br />Often local faith communities are underutilized resources in accessing support for learners. Local religious groups may be able to provide financial assistance, food bank resources, housing or social support for students experiencing difficulties while at school. Yet there are challenges for secular colleges wishing to access these resources. Chaplaincy may provide a connecting point between a college or university and the local religious communities. Mac and Erin will share from their experiences of working a t three post-secondary institutions<br />Concurrent Session 4<br />Thursday May 21, 2009<br />9:00-10:15 am<br />Mind the Gap: Helping Connect Ideas to Real Life<br />Jane LeeNorma Rodenburg<br />Manager, SFAICSr. Manager Student Services<br />University of Alberta SUUniversity of Alberta SU<br />How often have you attended a workshop or a conference and been energized by the ideas only to find your notes in a file folder a year or two later just gathering dust? Learners are often left to their own devices to connect what they have learned in a session back into the own “real lives”. Whether it is a financial literacy program for students of staff development, tangible steps can be taken to help transfer learning to make our programs effective. Strategies based on that can help you plan or deliver a session that will have real impact will be covered in an interactive session. <br />Would Peer Education Work for You<br />Keith Haimila<br />Peer Education Coordinator<br />University of Alberta<br />A talk about the many possible benefits that a peer education program can bring to your organization. The talk will centre on the CAPS Peer Education (CPE) model currently in place at the CAPS: Your U of A Career Centre and how it has successfully provided student services for over 15 years. Both the success and challenges of the CPE program will be detailed. There will also be time for a discussion about what to consider when setting up a peer education program. <br />Mentorship – Its Power & Possibilities<br />Erin ThomasLacey Rooks<br />Student Mentor/AdvisorStudent Mentor/Advisor<br />Portage CollegePortage College<br />In recent years, Portage College in Lac La Biche, Alberta has implemented a Student Mentorship program. On-site staff foster relationships with students in order to help them bridge the gap between themselves and instructors, counselors and community supports. Sometimes it takes a great deal of courage to ask for help and many students choose to remain silent about their struggles. Mentorship allows a way for that silence to be broken and strategies to be created for success. You will learn about Portage’s definition of mentorship, how it has evolved there as well as on other Alberta campuses, and how mentorship can be an invaluable tool for any post-secondary institution. <br />Breaking Down the Walls of an AT Lab<br />Tracy Inaba<br />AT Advisor<br />Bow Valley College<br />At Bow Valley College, the AT Lab needs to serve an increasing number of students in multiple locations. Breaking free from the four walls of a traditional AT Lab has forced us to face unique challenges and adopt new strategies...but has also led to greater student success!<br />Service Excellence<br />Brenda Barrett<br />Counsellor<br />Grant Mac Ewan (MacEwan) College<br />Defining customer service and what makes excellent customer service is what this session is all about. Are students really our customers? When students access our services, they are! Focusing on people, place and process, you will learn how to identify students’ needs and turnoffs, how to handle the difficult student and review basic communications skills. Come discover or (rediscover) your role in setting the impression of your institution through providing super service!<br />Concurrent Session 5<br />Thursday, May 21, 2009<br />10:45-12:00pm<br />More Than Meets the Eye: Understanding & Serving Students in a Holistic Way<br />Sirina Hamilton-McGregorJane Lee<br />Assistant Manager, SFAICManager, SFAIC<br />University of Alberta SUUniversity of Alberta SU<br />Students who access student services often have more than one stressor in their life. In this interactive session, we will learn how to identify these situations and share ideas on how best to serve these students and meet their needs holistically. Be prepared to share examples of these student as well as methods that have worked. <br />Using Metaphor to Understand Your Service Team Culture<br />Susie Kennedy<br />Registrar<br />Lethbridge College<br />Is your department a well-oiled machine? Are you the gatekeepers in your institution? This presentation will demonstrate how you can use a metaphor to help you understand your team culture- its strengths and challenges. <br />First Contact: How Important Is It?<br />Fran StewartRobert Rayko<br />Coordinator of CounsellingCounsellor<br />Portage CollegePortage College<br />This session will look at how counsellors and other support staff can make early contact with students with varying risk levels. The idea being that students will establish a relationship with Student Services, and therefore, (when in actual need), will access the services more quickly, will be aware of the supports available and interventions can take place in a more proactive manner, rather than letting the situation escalate to crisis. This creates a better opportunity for retention once that relationship has been established.<br />Institutional Scholarships & Awards Roundtable<br />Clare Lapinskie<br />Financial Aid Officer <br />Medicine Hat College<br />This will be a roundtable discussion focused on how institutional student awards programs are operated. Topics may include donor investment, application processes, awards/refunds procedures, confidentiality agreements and endowment funds.<br />Residence Partnerships: Fostering Positive Campus Relationships<br />Angela Smith<br />Residence Life Coordinator<br />Mount Royal College<br />Are you a Residence Life Professional or are you wanting to sink your teeth into residence? This presentation will discuss how you as a student service can get your ideas into the residence community at your institution and how to recruit other student services to get involved with residence. The model for student personal development that Mount Royal College introduced this year will be discussed and critiqued.<br />The Evolution of A First Year Program<br />Barbara ScuccatoBrenda Barrett<br />CoordinatorCounsellor<br />Grant MacEwan CollegeGrant MacEwan College<br />This presentation will focus on the history and development of the Student Success Program at Grant MacEwan College in Edmonton, Alberta. Evidence based practice and research has led to the development of a new direction with existing student support strategies at our college. This session will highlight our program’s objectives and content, marketing strategies and more importantly how we obtained funding and college by in! Other presentation topics will include key elements such as: New Student Orientations, Parent Orientation, Transition Programming, Online Orientation, MacEwan Ambassador Program (student leadership).<br />Concurrent Session 6<br />Thursday, May 21, 2009<br />1:15-2:30 pm<br />Campus Safety Initiative CSI<br />Ray Ambler<br />Manager – Health, Safety & Security<br />Lethbridge College<br />High profile college and university shootings in Canada and the United States, as well as terrorist attacks and other high profile traumas, have understandably increased anxiety among many students, staff, faculty, parents and others. Without formal procedures in schools and communities to assess high risk and threat making behavior, the likelihood of over-reacting or under-reacting is increased. <br />In 2000, Lethbridge College and the Canadian Threat Assessment Training Board collaborated in the development of a “Threat Assessment Training (TAT)” program initiative to train multidisciplinary Threat/Risk Assessment Training program.<br />The general purpose of a TAT protocol on college and university jurisdictions is to assist in creating and maintaining an environment where students, staff and faculty and others feel safe.<br />Lethbridge College has established a multidisciplinary College Safety Initiative (CSI) team to identify and assess indicators that suggest a person may be moving on a pathway towards violence against him/herself or others. The team determines if appropriate to intervene to decrease that risk, prevent injury and support the individual in receiving the help her or she needs to address the issues contributing to the high-risk behavior.<br />The Presentation will provide an overview of where we are with Lethbridge Colleges CSI Team, Threat Protocol, Threat Assessment Training and how the initiative is helping to foster a safer environment for campus stakeholders. <br />Supporting Students Researching and Applying for Graduate Study.<br />Dorothy Ritz<br />Graduate School Liaison<br />Grant MacEwan<br />We have seen the development of new and innovative graduate programs in recent years. Increasing numbers of students and alumni choose graduate study beyond a Baccalaureate degree. This interactive session will focus on practical ways to assist people who are in the process of pursuing further education.<br /> <br />When Partnership Was Power Brokering<br />Trent Keough<br />Vice President Academic<br />Portage College<br />A shift in thinking about partnership and collaboration reflects a new paradigm for delivery of educational services. It is an incomplete movement and poses serious challenges to silos of conventional authority. Contemporary “Partnership” embraces “Open Source” knowledge threatening the hegemony of computer software giants and educational institutions. <br />The Role of Emotional Intelligence in Student Services<br />Norma Rodenburg<br />Senior Manager, Student Services<br />University of Alberta<br />Emotional intelligence is defined as the ability to manage ourselves and our relationships effectively and consists of four fundamental capabilities: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and social skill (Goleman, 2000). This presentation will explore the role that emotional intelligence can play in student services (both at the staff and client level) and the recent research that has been conducted around student success and emotional intelligence. <br />Keys to Personal Success – True Colors<br />Judy Frank<br />Chair, Counselling Services<br />Lethbridge College<br />True Colors is a personality assessment to that assists individuals in understanding themselves and others. Come prepared for an interactive session that will allow you to discover your strengths and ways to improve communication skills at work and at home. Each participant will receive a booklet “Keys to Personal Success” which provides a wealth of information on the True Color Spectrum. <br />Term Paper Rx- Prescription for your Research<br />Ryan LewisIna BaczukConstance Sheriff<br />Reference Services LibrarianReference AssistantReference Assistant<br />Lethbridge CollegeLethbridge CollegeLethbridge College<br />Students are often overwhelmed by the amount of information that is available in a modern library. Term Paper Rx is a simple solution to information overload. The library service connects students with the information they need and teaches them how to use the library as well.<br />The Social Scene<br />Tuesday, May 19, 2009<br />Wine & Cheese Social<br />7:00 – 10:00 pm<br />Residence Hall<br />Sponsored by the Lethbridge College <br />Senior Leadership Team<br />Wednesday, May 20, 2009<br />ASSC Awards Banquet<br />Cocktails: 6:30 <br />Dinner: 7:00<br />Awards: 8:00<br />Dance: 9:00 [Chevelles]<br />Last Call: 11:30<br />Event end: 12:00<br />Garden Court – Lethbridge College<br />Thursday, May 21, 2009<br />Theme Night Dinner and Entertainment<br />Cocktails: 6:30 <br />Dinner: 7:00<br />Entertainment: 8:00<br />Last Call: 9:30<br />Event end: 10:00<br />Garden Court – Lethbridge College<br />Unofficial pub-crawl to start at Maddhatters Liquid Lounge <br />Friday, May 22, 2009<br />Institutional Insignia Exchange – Banner Parade: 10:30-11:30 am<br />The Institutional Insignia Exchange has been a part of the ASSC for as long as anyone can remember. The original intention was for delegates to connect with someone from another institution and to exchange a token of remembrance. Over the years the disbursement has been conducted in a variety of ways and has usually [but not always] been held at the Theme Night event. For the past few years we have received a range of feedback on this event so we thought that perhaps it would help for everyone to have this information. Many institutions feel that as the delegate keeps the item they should personally pay out of pocket for the item they take, other institutions cover the costs. This year we are suggesting a price range of $10 - $20. We are also encouraging institutions to bring their banner for display at the AGM. <br /> <br />Fun Activities<br />Wednesday, May 20, 2009<br />4:30 p.m. -6:00 p.m.<br />Go-Kart and a round of Mini Golf<br />Evergreen Golf Centre<br />$ 13.50 per person<br />4:30 p.m. – 6.00 p. m.<br />Coulee Hike<br />Lethbridge College and Area<br />Thursday, May 21, 2009<br />3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.<br />What 2 Wear 2 Work<br />Vicki Charge Chair Fashion Design and Merchandising<br />“Unsure of how to dress for work, even with a closet full of clothes?” Discover how to view your wardrobe with a new eye and combine garments you already have with a few new items and accessories for an easy and professional look!<br />3:00 p.m. -
