The Photo Project: Reframing Food
Growing up, my family’s relationship with food usually centered on affordability, time to prepare, and whether we could eat it multiple ways. It was not always nutritious, or included a vegetable – but we always had food. Most of the time we shopped at Save-A-Lot, which was walking distance from our house and generally the best bargain you could find. We would load up the cart with frozen pizzas, potatoes, sandwich materials, and some forms of snack foods.
2018 NASPA Hill Days & National Student Affairs Day of Action: #SAadvocates for Student Success
Student affairs professionals see first-hand both the triumphs and the struggles of students in ways that few other campus administrators can. Telling the stories of our students, stories that complement data showing what we know to be true across the country, is a powerful advocacy tool. Each student story is unique, but student affairs professionals work with students across campus, allowing perspective to identify trends and patterns in students’ experiences. As a national association representing the voices of student affairs professionals, NASPA is uniquely situated to elevate those stories and use them to inform policymakers at the state and federal level about the real impacts policy decisions have on the lives of students. Every day, student affairs professionals advocate for student success on campus; NASPA can help support and carry that advocacy to the next level, but we need your voice. Won’t you join #SAadvocates around the country in July to share your expertise and insight with policymakers?
