RPI Reports & Issues Briefs

NASPA Research & Policy Institute Research & Reports

One of the primary purposes of the RPI is to conduct research and analysis geared toward practitioner, policymaker, and scholarly audiences. Every year, the RPI produces a number of professional reports and issue briefs that explore a variety of higher education related topics of importance to student affairs professionals and postsecondary decisionmakers. Publications such as the 5 Things Issue Brief Series and Legal Links are designed to provide leaders in higher education with actionable knowledge drawn from today's top scholars. Other reports or policy memos focus on critical public policy questions, specific student populations, or investigate some aspect of student affairs as a profession.
