In NASPA’s 100-year history, the Association has sought to include all areas of higher education over the decades. What started as a Knowledge Community at NASPA was approved to become a Division within NASPA in 2007. Since then, NASPA and the CCD have created a partnership where professional staff can work alongside higher education professionals in various areas of the field to learn how to support students, faculty, staff, and to create opportunities to keep the field innovative and inclusive of the needs of all types of community college and two-year institutions.
The Community Colleges Division seeks to provide a space for community college professionals to connect with one another while providing scholarship, advocacy, and engagement. We provide a venue for discussion, research, and the distribution of information about community colleges. The goals for the Community Colleges Division are to:
- Explore the impact of national issues in a community college context
- Identify and support community colleges role in providing student services and programming with diminishing resources
- Engage in and inform the profession about new research and practices regarding community college students and professionals
- Empower colleagues as they explore pathways and possibilities offered by community colleges
The Division welcomes the participation of any individual who either works at or has an interest in community colleges, and it offers a platform for discussion, learning, and innovation. We aspire to make the Community Colleges Division a place for graduate students, faculty, and student affairs professionals to connect and share knowledge and experience.
