Student development conference scheduled at ACU

For immediate release
Oct. 2, 2002

Abilene Christian University will serve as host for the annual Conference on Student Development Oct. 4-8.

The conference will focus on "embracing the tensions" that are part of a daily struggle for today's educators and will include approximately 40 student development professionals from ACU's Church of Christ sister schools.

Jan Meyer, director of student leadership development for ACU, describes the conference as having four main goals: spiritual challenge, enhancing skills for professionals, building community and providing rest for the weary.

The conference sessions will discuss how student development professionals can serve as mediators and servants in a profession rife with diversity and conflict, while integrating a call to faith and integrity, Meyer said.

However, leaders of the conference are hoping to provide more than just valuable information. As well as informative seminars, the conference will include a tour of some of West Texas' unique attractions, including Buffalo Gap, Dyess Air Force Base and the Paramount Theatre.

"Our excursions into the West Texas culture will highlight ACU's flavor to our visitors," Meyer said.
