Great news: CUPA-HR 2019 presentation!

It’s nice to have a proposal to present accepted at a conference – and it’s even nicer to have a second proposal accepted the following year.

Last week I learned that my proposal “How Do Institutions Afford Living Wage Policies?: The Costs & Benefits” has been accepted for presentation to the 2019 CUPA-HR Annual Conference in Denver October 20-22.

I’m delighted because CUPA-HR (College and University Professional Association for Human Resources, cupahr.org) is a vibrant organization drawing HR professionals from across the spectrum of public and private higher education institutions, and this project depends upon the participation of Chief Human Resource Officers at American higher education institutions. As I posted last fall, the CUPA-HR 2018 conference was terrific, and I’m looking forward to seeing how they top that this year!

I’ll update this post with my presentation date and time when the conference schedule is finalized.

If you are attending CUPA-HR, please stop by. I hope to see you there.

Living wage webinar video

Thank you to everyone who participated in my AASHE webinar, Socially Sustainable: Living Wage Policies in American Higher Education, on Wednesday (Feb 21 2018), especially to AASHE for the opportunity to report some of the preliminary results from phase 1 of the Living Wage Policy Study.

While I’ve taught online graduate courses for several years, this was my first webinar – on any subject – and I enjoyed learning about the process. Special thanks to AASHE Education Programs Manager Daita Serghi who was terrific to work with and makes it look easy.

In my experience, writing and presenting material in depth helps me attain clarity about what I know and what I don’t know, and preparing for this presentation was no exception.

The webinar and presentation materials are available to AASHE members on the AASHE Campus Sustainability Hub. A video of the webinar is viewable here or click the title slide below.
