Letter from the President

Pic of WACUHO PresidentHello WACUHO members!

It’s that time again! Semester schools are about to enter the homestretch with final assignments, building repairs and staff training about to start. Quarter schools, better remember to squeeze in some summer fun…time is ticking!

Along with opening, many WACUHO events begin to roll, most importantly, our annual membership drive. We would love your school to remain active in your membership. We would also appreciate you extending your hand and urging back your sister schools who may have lapsed in their membership and participation in our community.

The RAPS are coming up quickly. I am always energized by the spirit, ingenuity and outright frivolity emanating from our student colleagues whether they are Resident Advisors, Community Assistants and or Hall Government volunteers.  Please support their development and bring a large contingent to your regional RAP.

We will also start seeing action with this year’s committees all of which are committed to your growth as professionals and seeking excellence in our field. There are still openings on many, check out our website or see below for more information.

Keep a watch for an updated website, trainings and professional conversations, opportunities to provide input to our strategic plan, and much more.  Need something or have a great idea? Let us know and we can work on it together.

I wish you a success in preparations for opening, welcoming your new and returning students, and fostering academic success in your communities.

Stephen Fleischer
2014-2015 WACUHO President

Strategic Planning Task Force Update

The Strategic Planning Task Force is currently working on the WACUHO Master Plan.  Currently, the task force has identified four key focus areas for the master plan:

  • Communication
  • Organizational Infrastructure
  • Leadership and Member Engagement
  • Enhancing the Profession

These four focus areas will be the backbone of the plan.  Around these focus areas, the task force will identify the desired situation in each area, key indicators that will help us assess if we are on the right track, objectives on how we plan on getting there, and the priority level for the next five years.  In the upcoming academic year, we are expecting the following “road markers” leading up to the Annual Conference and Exhibition in April:

  • December of 2014:  First draft of the master plan to the executive committee and CHOs for feedback
  • January of 2015:  Revised draft of the master plan posted to our website for membership feedback
  • End of March 2015:  Final version of the master plan presented to the membership at the Annual Conference and Exhibition and submitted to the Membership for vote at the Annual Business Meeting.

We want all members to have a voice in the master planning process.  If you know any of the members of the task force, feel free to talk to them about your hopes, dreams, and concerns about WACUHO as an organization.  We will be glad to listen and include your voice into the master plan.  The members of the task force include:

  • Tyler Miller
  • Willie Brown
  • Carol Roberts-Corb
  • Jennifer Novotny
  • Emily Sandoval
  • Jason Lu
  • Chris Young

If you do not know any of the names above, feel free to email tyler miller, the chair of the Strategic Planning task force at
