About

The 2018 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:

  • Build and strengthen strategies for organizational leadership to include change leadership, political landscapes, resource management, crisis management, and supervisory skills;
  • Develop the skill to manage from the middle both internally to include staff and supervisors, and externally to include stakeholders and cross campus constituents
  • Maximize your role to gain a deeper understanding of influence, power, and resources while advancing your professional growth;
  • Build a global network of mid-level colleagues.
