Join us in San Antonio, Texas (USA) for the 22nd NASPA International Symposium and NASPA Annual Conference. The International Symposium is a day and a half pre-conference event (11-12 March 2016) that will explore global issues in student affairs and services and higher education. The event format will include keynote presentations, concurrent sessions, interactive discussions and social opportunities.
As the field of student affairs continues to develop globally, focused opportunities for an intentional, international exchange of ideas are becoming more critical. The NASPA International Symposium facilitates the advancement of a global discussion and worldwide understanding of student affairs as a field, and, in many countries, a profession. The International Symposium expands on the conference theme by including global perspectives. A key Symposium goal is to invite and explore new perspectives, and to create new connections in order to bridge global boundaries.
As a result of attending the International Symposium, we hope that participants will be able to:
