The 2021 NAKHE Conference will not be an in-person conference. Instead, NAKHE will have a virtual conference on January 6-9, 2021.

This year’s conference theme is Supporting Faculty through Effective Leadership: The Work Beyond the Work. The 2021 NAKHE Conference will focus on how leaders can effectively support their faculty in areas outside of teaching, scholarship, and service. Special attention will be paid to legal and ethical aspects of the work environment, open communication between faculty and administrators, and understanding inclusive excellence. The conference strands are:

  • Asking the Right Questions and Giving the Right Answers: in this strand, presentations will focus on how faculty can effectively request support from administration, navigate communication issues, and clarify role responsibilities.
  • Legal and Ethical Aspects: in this strand, presentations will focus on how faculty can effectively navigate requesting family or medical leave, report harassment or other violations of faculty handbook, and utilize on-campus resources.
  • Faculty Development: in this strand, presentations will focus on developing administrators’ skills in the areas of supporting faculty.
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: In this strand, presentations will focus on specific experiences, research, or best practices regarding diversity and inclusion.
  • Instructional Physical Activity Programs: In this strand, presentations will have a specific focus on instructional physical activity programs. Presentations tied to the conference theme are preferred, but all proposals about instructional physical activity programs will be considered.
  • Coaching: In this strand, presentations will have a specific focus on coaching education in higher education. Presentations tied to conference themes are preferred, but all proposals about coaching education will be considered.
  • Open Sessions: In this strand, work that may not fit the conference theme but aligns with NAKHE’s mission statement or strategic plan will be presented.

CONFERENCE REGISTRATION RATES

We are happy to announce the registration rates for our first-ever virtual conference. Due to concerns we are hearing across the country about budget cuts and financial hardships, NAKHE is offering a slightly different structure to registration rates this year. Each conference registration comes with a one-year membership to the organization.

As the situation with COVID-19 continues to unfold, we are cognizant of the financial pressures that members might be under to engage in professional development at a reasonable price. If you cannot afford the registration fees above, please reach out to NAKHE Vice-President, Jody Langdon, at jlangdon@georgiasouthern.edu and we will work with you!

  • If you do not wish to become a member of NAKHE, there will be an opt-out selection during the registration process. There is no change in the conference registration rate for anyone who opts out of membership during the registration process.

  • Please note that if you are a current member whose membership expires on or before January 31, 2021, after registering for the conference and paying the registration fee, your member expiration date will be extended for one year.
    • This means most members will not have to pay dues for 2021, as they are included in the price of the conference.

  • If your membership expires after January 31, 2021, you will not have to pay a registration fee to attend the conference. However, your membership will not be extended.

We understand this process may be confusing. To assist members with this registration process, Webmaster Donna Woolard will be sending emails to NAKHE members specifying which registration option they should use and the required access code if required.
