Northwest Association of College & University Housing Officers

First Friday Webinars

The NWACUHO First Friday Webinar series is one of the most important functions of the association. With our disparate geography and small membership pool, the First Friday Webinars are, in some cases, the only Professional Development some of our members receive. First Friday Webinars are held at no cost for membership.

There are three categories for NWACUHO webinars:

The first category, and primary purpose of most webinars, is a Competency Building Webinar. It’s purpose is to enhance the personal or professional capability of our members in keeping with the ACUHO-I Core Competencies. Sessions that fit this description may teach our members about emergency response, occupancy management, student learning, etc.

The second category is to Information Sharing Webinars, and their purpose is to disseminate information about a unique or interesting program or research result to our members.  For example, if a person’s graduate degree research was particularly interesting to Housing professionals, the webinar would fit into this category. This is also true if an institution has a really great Student Staff training model they wish to share.

The third and final category of webinar is a NWACUHO Informational Webinar. This is a webinar that is intended to convey information about the association to the membership. This is common when we engage in significant projects, such as Master Planning, or when we are preparing for a major event like an Annual Conference.

Breaking the Fast: Supporting Students During The Holy Month of Ramadan

Presented by Jacqueline Chambers, Coordinator for Diversity Initiatives & Programs from Oregon State University

Friday, April 6, 2018, 10:00am-11:00am Pacific

As the lunar calendar shifts, the Islamic holy month of Ramadan will continue to be observed during the academic year. Muslims observing Ramadan are required to fast with no food or water from sunrise until sunset daily for the month with special prayers before and after eating and throughout the night. This can impact not only observing students, but also their roommates and community. This presentation will give a brief overview of Ramadan and practices for observing the month and discuss how OSU changed policies and practices to better support students during their observation.

Never miss a webinar again thanks to the NWACUHO Youtube Channel!
