About

The 2017 NASPA Mid-Level Administrators Conference is a national professional development conference designed to provide mid-level student affairs professionals with the opportunity to engage with colleagues and senior student affairs administrators. Participants will gain insights from promising practices and personal reflections to further develop their professional competencies, networking and supervisory skills, and acquire new skills and strategies to improve their professional practice. The Mid-level Administrators Conference is designed for those practitioners with at least five years of student affairs experience, who supervise full time staff members and are primarily responsible for several student affairs functions on campus.

As a result of this experience, participants will be able to:

  • Develop the skill to manage from the middle both internally to include staff and supervisors, and externally to include stakeholders and cross campus constituents;
  • Continue to refine personal code of ethics and gain an understanding on the impacts of professional leadership roles;
  • Reflect on personal strengths and areas for development to lead within student affairs;
  • Envision your professional growth and learn the options on advancing and/or transitioning careers; and
  • Build a network of mid-level colleagues.
