The work of the SSAO is constantly increasing in complexity and scope. More and more, SSAOs are responsible for navigating complex campus crises that pit stakeholder groups against one another or challenge conventional wisdom. This year, the SSAO Institute is focused on a few emergent trends. We invited national experts to share best practices on balancing First Amendment rights and controversial speakers on campus, action planning for equity and inclusion, and responding to high-risk student-organization behavior.
