Case study team wins NASPA regional competition

05 Dec 2016    

The student affairs case study team from the Department of Educational Administration has once again brought home the hardware from the NASPA (Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education) regional conference. This year’s case study was even more competitive because the competition was part of a joint conference of regions IV-W and IV-E held Nov. 15-17 in St. Louis. The team of Linh Phu, Ashley Hurt, Kassi Woods and Stephanie Blair took first place.

These graduate students in the student affairs program in Educational Administration were presented with a case study and given 21 hours to answer questions, discuss how it applies to current literature and NASPA Competencies, and prepare a case study presentation before three judges from different universities. The Nebraska team took home first for their case study titled “Supervision, Accountability and Confidentiality.” It involved a new residence hall director who was dealing with a new resident assistant who was missing meetings, lying about it and possibly involved in illegal hazing as part of sorority rush.

“A group from UNL has taken first or second the last several years at the NASPA regional conference,” said Stephanie Bondi, assistant professor of practice in Educational Administration. “I’m so proud of the good work of our students.”
