Every year we get to spend time with good people, partners who have become friends, friends who have become partners and those who are just friends! Every year GradGuard hosts a happy hour to celebrate these relationships and this year was by far our best ever! Thank you, to everyone who came out and joined us. Thanks also for the free hugs!
I shared this post recently with for the March edition of URMIA Insights - (University Risk Management and Insurance Association). The message, however, is important for other leaders in higher education and particularly for those in student housing and student financial services.

I love the spring. The last day of March, however, brings the reality that Major League Baseball spring training is ending and the hot Arizona summer will soon be upon us.
It was wonderful to see so many colleagues last week attending the annual ACUHO-I Business Operations conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. Arizona is home for many of our GradGuard team so it was terrific to host our many school clients near our headquarters in Phoenix.
Our GradGuard team is looking forward to the annual ACUHO-I conference this week in Seattle. The annual ACUHO-I meeting is the best gathering of leaders in student housing and residence life. Given the value of residential life to increasing college completion rates, GradGuard invests in supporting this community of higher education and housing professionals.
The ACUHOI community forum offers a robust place for housing professionals to discuss topics. Today a discussion occured regarding institutional policies for summer programs. Schools, particularly in popular urban locations, such as Washington D.C., Chicago and many others have strong and growing conference programs.
Kelly Field wrote in the November 25, 2015 issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education an important article (“How Much Can Campus-Crime Reports Tell Us About Sexual Assault?”) on what campus crime reports reveal about sexual assaults on college campuses.

It was great to see ACUHOI discussion regarding the value of renters insurance in their message boards / forums. These are really useful discussions and it is great to see the variety of topics impacting leaders in student housing.
