The TACUHO Summer Drive-In series is an initiative implemented during summer 2019. These gatherings were created for the purpose of residence life professionals in the state of Tennessee to meet regionally (East, Middle, and West) to discuss campus updates, trends, and best practices while also fostering fellowship with neighboring colleagues in the field. Below is a testimony from a participant at one of our first annual summer drive-in events.
“The TACUHO Drive-In was a wonderful and relaxed opportunity to connect with some of our fellow East Tennessee colleges and universities. The relaxed format of the event allowed for holistic and honest dialogue about ways to improve our campus housing experiences for our students. We heard from other professionals working with different institution types and shared our wins from the year, as well as our identified areas of growth. I hope to see more of these sub-regional “conferences” to foster more open and consistent dialogue between our neighbors. I think this is a wonderful start to building strong relationships and learning from one another!”
