A Balancing Act: Faculty and First-gen
Presenters will share testimonios and personal narratives about how their intersecting identities, personal backgrounds, and life experiences inform their pedagogy and research practices.
With over 7,000 student affairs educators, the NASPA Annual Conference is the largest event of its kind. With featured speakers who engage participants in thoughtful reflection on the field, over 600 educational sessions presented by student affairs professionals, and networking events that both engage and inspire us to do our work on campus, this event is one not to be missed!
We’re very excited to see you next year in Austin. At the same time, we recognize that many of our California colleagues will not be able to join us in Texas. NASPA is thrilled to share that we will have a “Connected Conference” in California to simultaneously engage our NASPA family in California with those who will be in Austin! Please stay tuned for more information about how you can engage with the Connected Conference next year.
SA Pros must be innovative in our design of cross-divisional approaches that contribute to student success. We must create a holistic and supportive university environment in a manner that resonates with today’s college student.
Collaboration encourages creativity and innovation, offers a greater depth of knowledge, and introduces us to new ideas. We must cultivate new partnerships inside and outside of the academy.
Higher education is under scrutiny from many who question its value proposition. Student affairs educators must provide the best environment for students in an increasingly diverse student population with shifting expectations from stakeholders.
As the field and leadership diversifies, generationally, demographically, and functionally, tensions now exist among the existing narratives and the lived experience of some student affairs educators. We must evolve and realign the profession.
