Greetings Colleagues of Region VI!

I wanted to release the official call for submissions to the NASPA Region VI Newsletter for 2017-2018. We look forward to hearing from undergraduates, graduate students, new professionals, mid-level, and senior professionals in our region. We are in a pivotal time in our field and I am left with a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “The day we begin to die is the day that we become silent about the things that matter.” So I encourage you all to utilize your voice and have this newsletter be your vehicle.

Here are my goals for the Region VI Newsletter this 2017-2018:

  • Disseminate critical reflections and scholarly articles surrounding the ways in which we as practitioners can participate in dialogue and action around social justice, equity, and inclusion.
  • Measure and then continually improve engagement with our readership
  • Share new knowledge in a relaxed format that allows for reflection and sound practitioner research
  • Encourage participation from all major sub-regions and as many KCs as possible in newsletter

Mark your Calendars for the publication schedule for both the
