Residence Life Attends Professional Conference


Residence Life professional staff attended the annual conference for the Upper Midwest Region - Association of College and University Housing Officers. This year’s conference took place Nov. 8-10 in Coralville, Iowa. Truman was represented by hall directors Katelin Mathis and Roger Gasmann, along with Zac Burden, assistant director of residence life.

At the conference, Gasmann was a participant in the case study competition and won a conference fee waiver with his successful entry in an essay competition. Burden was recognized as a top presenter for his session on how to effectively apply educational theory to student staff training design, something he credits to his experiences as a former graduate student of Truman’s Masters of Arts in Education program.

While at the conference, the delegation was updated on the many students across the region that will be supported by ACUHO-I’s Gaber Leadership Endowment named in honor of Ron Gaber, a former director of residence life at Truman.
