SEAHO Report - Spring 2019 - 13

Committee Reports
For those who weren't able to make it, we've collected insights from two of our participants: Kenzel Hill,
Resident Director at Georgia Southern University and Demarcus Merritt, Assistant Director for Residence Life
at UNC-Greensboro:
1. What session did you find most interesting at SEAHO-U and why?
Demarcus: "I really got the most from the SEAHO Welcome Address by
Dr. Dave Parrott. It really set the tone and focus for just how law and higher
education started as well as progressed over time. I know in my earlier years
of my career, the impact and involvement of the law in higher education was
not conceptualized or actualized within the scope of my roles or work. It
really painted a much larger picture of how the work we do and the impact
we make really transcends at much higher and political levels."
Kenzel: "The session that I found most interesting at SEAHO-U was one
presented by Dr. David Parrot, A Collision of Core Values - Free Speech and
Inclusion. In this session Dr. Parrot provided a variety of anecdotes from
both American History and his experiences as an administrator regarding
Free Speech both in general and on our campuses. He was able to speak
about the balance between what we may classify as harmful speech but
still being inclusive of that speech. What I found most important was the
fact that it can be challenging not just as a higher education and student
affairs professional but as a person to see someone communicate what you may consider harmful or hurtful to
another person or oneself, but that these messages are at the heart of what free speech is and why we not just as
professionals but citizens must protect the core values of free speech."
2. How have you been able to implement the knowledge you gained at SEAHO-U?
Demarcus: "It has really held me accountable to looking more at current events to see how government law
and higher education practices intersect as well as impact one another. I've committed to looking at Insider
Higher Ed website at least once a week to identify those intersections and then foster a space of review,
reflection, and dialogue as a part of my staff meetings. It has been voiced as an appreciated addition from my
professional and graduate level staff. The graduate level staff have commented on how it allows for further
education and dialogue beyond their academia spaces. I think this focus and the sessions helped to better equip
and elevate my mindset for senior level positions and senior level circles
about other aspects such as law and free speech impact the many roles and
positionalities that our filed and line of work encompasses."
Kenzel: "I have been able to implement my knowledge from SEAHO-U
by considering how I educate students both in conduct and non-conduct
situations about their rights and responsibilities. Not just within a Code
of Student Conduct but overall the rights and responsibilities they have
as a citizen and to ensure that they know how to exercise those. Instead
of arguing about what may be possible harmful speech or actions, I
communicate that my role as an educator is to challenge their perspectives
further in both conduct and non-conduct situations to help them understand
how that speech impacts our community."
A huge thank you to both Kenzel and Demarcus for sharing their insights
from SEAHO-U, the amazing experts who gave their time to educate our
members, and to all the attendees for engaging in each of the sessions. We
hope to see you all at next year's SEAHO-U!
