  • 5 Things To Do For You This Winter Break

    Ah, the smell of winter, potential snow days, greetings of holiday songs, students, faculty and staff feelings are high--*record scratch*-- in reality, this time of the year can be very stressful for many student affairs professionals and faculty members with the frantic buzz about upcoming final exams. As professionals, we are looking at wrapping up the fall semester and year-end, student stress levels are reaching astronomical levels, and all while we find ourselves trying to scramble for last-minute events, grading last-minute papers, enrollment, reports, entering grades, and making presentations.

  • News from your Regional Director

    “As a new NASPA person, I would never think that Leadership Positions would fall under “Volunteer Opportunities” – and maybe that is just me. There was some conversations by some of us new folks in Wichita that the selection of leadership doesn’t seem to be very transparent –– it seems kinda like “if you know people you get asked” but that we don’t really make a “Leadership Call” very obvious.”

  • Kansas Membership Coordinator

    Here we are another semester has flown by and we’re looking into a new year. I am never sure if it is good or bad when the semester seems like it flew by as quickly as it did! As one of your Region IV-West Membership Coordinators, I hope you were able to connect with your state membership coordinator at the regional conference in October, but if you didn’t, I would encourage you to reach out to your state membership coordinator to connect.

  • KC Spotlight: International Education Knowledge Community (IEKC)

    My student affairs journey is both well-trodden and somewhat unique. Like many, I learned about the profession haphazardly as a student leader. After graduation, I needed a break before continuing graduate education. What followed was a road less traveled by many business management students – I moved to Taiwan and taught English.

  • Support Region IV-W’s Pillar of the Profession

    Taken from the NASPA Foundation website, “ Each year at the NASPA Annual Conference, the NASPA Foundation recognizes a series of distinguished individuals who have served as leaders, teachers, and scholars in student affairs and higher education. Each individual is nominated and supported for designation as a Pillar by colleagues, students, friends, or others who find them deserving of this honor. If selected as a Pillar, the nominator and selected Foundation Board member will raise $3,500 in the name of the individual being nominated to further research and scholarship in student affairs.

  • Beyond the Budget Blues: Building Capacity for CLDE Work on Campus

    Many of us within the CLDE community have faced the challenges of small staff, tight budgets, and long to-do lists. Yet, we often bring to the table strong convictions about the necessity and the urgency of our work, for our students and institutions, for our communities and democracy.
