Today on SA: Voices From the Field we are continuing our COVID-19 Crisis Conversations Dialogue. Today’s episode is all about housing and residence life and how those operations in the student affairs profession have been impacted, in particular our students and staff. Today we were joined by Dr. Pamela Schreiber, Assistant Vice President for Student Life and Executive Director of Housing and Food Services at the University of Washington and Kawanna Leggett, Executive Director of Residence Life at Washington University in St. Louis. Both shared their expertise in housing and residential life as well as practical tips that they had to follow at their institutions to support their students and staff.
Dr. Schreiber shared her favorite non-Student Affairs Book as being The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek. Her favorite Student Affairs Read is The Chronicle of Higher Education. If you want to reach out to Dr. Schreiber you can reach out on Twitter at @pschreib or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
