2019 NASPA Region IV-East Conference

Regional Conference Student Success Region IV-E

NASPA, with its early roots in Region IV-E, is embarking on its second century. Our 2019 theme “Rooted in our Values; Advocating for Change” acknowledges the foundation from which our profession has grown. From this strong foundation, we are able to extend in different directions to meet the needs of the diverse students we serve. We advocate for change to address inequity and injustice while poised to support the future needs of our students and of our profession. Join us in Des Moines, Iowa for the 2019 NASPA Region IV-East Conference November 3-5, 2019.

About

Des Moines, Iowa welcomes NASPA Region IV-E for the Annual Conference, Nov. 3-5, 2019.

Land Acknowledgement

Do you know where you are? is a question that further grounds the theme of the Annual Conference. In relation to land acknowledgements, Do you know where you are? asks us to consider the ways in which Native Nations maintain linguistic, cultural, and political continuity with locales and how, from time immemorial, their economies and educational systems have depended on access to lands and waters. The relevance of this understanding to the profession is that these economies and educational systems have been colonized by the same non-Native colleges and universities that Native students seek an education. This is to say, we live, learn, and work in locations that serve as the original contexts of learning for Native peoples. With all this in mind, the conference committee would like to acknowledge that in addition to the Meskwaki Nation—the only federally recognized tribe in the state of Iowa—there are over 54 Native Nations from 8 states (16 tribes from Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota; 27 tribes from Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin; and 11 tribes from Kansas and Oklahoma) who possess pre-colonial ties to the state of Iowa.

Message from Co-chairs

On behalf of the entire conference committee, we are excited to welcome you to beautiful Des Moines, Iowa.  Our 2019 Conference theme of “Rooted in Our Values: Advocating for Change” has a fitting home in Iowa.  Iowa has a long history of being on the forefront of civil rights and social justice issues: ruling that a separate education was not equal in 1868 – over 50 years before Brown v. Board of Education; having the first state university in the nation to open all its degree programs to women; and legalizing same sex marriage long before it became federally allowed.  Iowa shows its place on the national stage every four years with serious activism and advocacy in their first-in-the-nation presidential caucus.  As NASPA enters its second century, our conference seeks to examine the connection between our historic and future values, and how we lead in advocating for change.  Please consider joining us for three days which will be thought provoking, challenging, exciting, and energizing.

Using Your Voice: Leveraging Student Affairs in Government Affairs
Sunday, November 3rd • 09.00 AM – 12.00 PM

Student affairs professionals are often in positions to see how policy proposals will affect students and that expertise is invaluable in helping policymakers create effective and fair requirements and processes. Learning to frame the work student affairs professionals do daily into stories that can give faces and names to larger policy conversations might seem like a tall order, but this three hour workshop will give you the information and resources you need to do it. Cost is $35.

Effective governing, whether at the institution, state, or federal levels, requires that those responsible for crafting policy and legislation hear from and listen to on-the-ground experts working with students on a daily basis. Student affairs professionals are often in positions to see how policy proposals will affect a broad group of students and that expertise is invaluable in helping policymakers create effective and fair requirements and processes. Learning to frame the work student affairs professionals do daily into stories that can give faces and names to larger policy conversations might seem like a tall order, but this three hour workshop will give you the information and resources you need to do it.

We'll give you up-to-date information on our nation's seminal higher education legislation, the Higher Education Act, and work through specific examples from among the attendees to craft evidence-based stories you can use immediately when you return to campus. Whether you're raising critical issues internally for your own institutional leadership or working to help guide and shape public policy at the local, state, or federal levels, you won't want to miss this hands-workshop!

Who should attend?
The pre-conference is appropriate for all NASPA members.

Presenters:
Teri Lyn Hinds
Director of Policy Research and Advocacy at NASPA

Tim Powers
Director of Government Relations and Policy Development at NAICU
