Searcy and Rettinger Present at SACSA Conference

Dr. Doug Searcy, vice president for Student Affairs, and Dr. David Rettinger, executive director of the Center for Honor, Leadership, and Service, presented a program on UMW’s Center for Honor, Leadership and Service at the 64th Annual Conference of the Southern Association for College Student Affairs (SACSA) in Norfolk, Va., Nov. 2 to 4.

The presentation focused on sharing strengths of the center program and its development of best practices that seek to raise the bar for industry standards in developing similar programs that create a seamless experience between curricular and co-curricular components of the University.

Searcy also facilitated a senior-level panel on campus collaboration as a tool to address student needs and support student learning, and served on a panel to discuss threat assessment and behavioral intervention teams and the models for implementing and successfully maintaining these teams that are now critical for supporting student success and persistence to graduation.
