Each year, the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs hosts the Jon C. Dalton Institute on College Student Values promoting research, trends, and good practices related to the character and values development of college students.

This year, more than 160 student affairs professionals, faculty, and students from across the nation gathered to discuss the most current issues, research, and educational activities related to character education in college.

“This open dialogue, in a welcoming, personalized atmosphere, emphasizes personal development, character, intellectual growth, and a return to the core values necessary for college student success,” said Craig Beebe, higher education doctoral student and graduate assistant for the Dalton Institute.

Many master’s and doctoral students within the FSU Higher Education program (FSU HESA) worked alongside Beebe as Dalton Institute interns and chairs to help coordinate the large event:

  • Intern/Volunteer Coordinator: Mallory Foutch (Master’s)
  • Intern/Program Coordinator: Kate Morales (Master’s)
  • Intern/Public Relations Coordinator: Danielle Lewis (Master’s)
  • Technology Chair: Matthew Corbett (Master’s)
  • Hospitality Chairs: Jessica Coons and Megan Downey (Master’s)
  • Registration Chair: Blake Weiss (Master’s)
  • Speakers Chair: Sally Watkins (Doctoral)

“All master’s and doctoral HESA students are asked to serve as volunteers throughout the Institute which gives the Dalton Institute a hospitable and friendly, small-conference feel,” said Mallory Foutch.

Held on February 4-6, the conference’s keynote speakers included Atira Charles, assistant professor of management in the School of Business and Industry at Florida A&M University and CEO of Think Actuality LLC; George Kuh, adjunct research professor at the University of Illinois and Chancellor’s Professor of Higher Education Emeritus at Indiana University; The Rev. Dr. Jamie Washington, president and founder of the Washington Consulting Group; and Penny Rue, vice president for Campus Life at Wake Forest University.
