While many Region V members were off in Hawaii, a group of about 20 folks gathered in Seattle for a NASPA Meet-Up! We had people show up from a couple institutions in Seattle and even a few graduate students who came up from Portland! Thanks to everyone who showed up – can’t wait for the next opportunity to connect.
NMASAP will be holding the 2018 Symposium on UNM Main campus in Albuquerque, NM (UNM Student Union Ballroom) on February 22-23, 2018. Three diverse panels consisting of faculty, staff and students from several New Mexico colleges and universities will discuss critical topics.
“I don’t know what I am going to do” “I worry that I will go home and not find my parents at home” “What if ICE comes to campus?” “What if DACA is rescinded?” “I get told to go back to where you came from, I am expected to return to a country that is foreign to me. I am 20 and I was brought to the states when I was 2.” “Will I have to go back to my home country?” “How will I make a living if they take away DACA?” “I can’t receive financial aid; how will I pay for college?” “How do I plan for my future?”
Last month we hosted our 2017 IV-West Conference, "Cultivating a New Crop". With 371 registrants, Lincoln, NE hosted our largest IV-West conference in the last 5 years!
I wanted to start by saying thank you! This conference was rejuvenating and I found myself even more excited about the future of higher education. I was renewed by seeing friends and colleagues, I laughed and learned with many of you, and I met some amazing new professionals and award winners at the conference. I was often taken aback by the award winners, presenters, and young professionals I interacted with and it gave me even more hope.
Happy December and end of the semester!!!!! Thank you to those who I had the opportunity to visit with during the NASPA IV-W Conference Nov. 7-9 in Lincoln, NE about getting involved!! I look forward to seeing you apply for one of the positions below and GET INVOLVED!
