Greetings from the NASPA Public Policy Division (PPD), and welcome back to the Division's blog post series! After a short hiatus, we are eager to provide you, our NASPA colleagues, with relevant and timely updates and thought-provoking posts related to public policy matters.
Given the thrust of the PPD’s mission to “provide leadership in higher education through policy development and advocacy for students on important national issues,” the relevance and significance of our focus cannot be understated. There are myriad higher education policy issues with which our federal, state, and local leaders are grappling, and it is critical that NASPA members be informed and use our voices to help shape policy in ways that positively influence the student experience.
In the coming months, we'll be sharing posts on a variety of policy issues. While we hope to touch on topics of relevance to you, please feel free to email me at [email protected] with suggestions. If you are active on LinkedIn, consider joining our public policy group.
I look forward to connecting with you via email or during the NASPA Conference in Austin, Texas, March 29 - April 1, 2020!
