2019 NASPA Region I Conference

November 17 - November 20, 2019
Rhode Island Convention Center, Providence, RI


The mission of the NASPA Region I Conference is to provide opportunities for networking and creating professional connections, sharing ideas and innovative practices, and exploring new topics and issues in student affairs

The Region I Conference Committee strives to create an inclusive environment for all attendees, such that everyone has equal access to participate in programs and all perspectives are valued and appreciated.

The Region I Conference aspires to be an outstanding professional development opportunity for all student affairs professionals in regards to strengthening skills, acquiring knowledge related to student development and student affairs, and developing meaningful connections with peers and colleagues.

Participants will leave the Region I Conference with renewed energy and passion for their work and for improving the lives of their students.

Our regional conference is located on the ancestral territory of the Narragansett and Wampanoag people. As part of NASPA's efforts to enact social justice and inclusive practives, this acknowledgement serves as reminder that before the conference site was settled, it has been long occupied by people who have a distict linguistic, cultural, and historical connection to this location.
