NASPA Region IV-West is one of the most diverse and expansive regions in all of NASPA. We pride ourselves in our multifaceted voices and welcoming culture. We focus primarily on our members leading the organization and the development of our members. Be a part of what makes IV-W special!
Starting in late April, 2019, the NASPA Research and Policy Institute blog has been merged into the NASPA blog! Check us out there: http://www.naspa.org/about/blog
The Regional SERVE (Supporting, Expanding, and Recruiting Volunteer Excellence) Program is mirrored from the NASPA National SERVE Academy. It is our role as an Association to help our members feel a connection to the region and Association, a sense of belonging, and purpose for your membership.

Have you recently started a position in Student Affairs? Have you taken on new responsibilities within the Higher Education? Are you finding it difficult to understand if Student Affairs is right for you? If any of these are true for you we encourage you to consider attending the New Professionals Institute (NPI).
Thank you to all of our IV-West members and friends for your generosity during the 2018-2019 NASPA year!

Greetings from your Region IV-West representative to the Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement (CLDE) Knowledge Community! Though my day job is not directly connected to CLDE work, I feel passionately that we as Higher Education Professionals must empower groups and individuals on our campuses to become civically aware and engaged.
