2020 NASPA Strategies Conferences

January 16 – January 18, 2020
New Orleans, LA

The 2020 NASPA Strategies Conferences provide student affairs practitioners with the knowledge and skills to effectively address collegiate alcohol and drug abuse prevention, mental health, sexual violence prevention and response, and well-being through a variety of comprehensive and integrative approaches.

Your registration allows you to customize your program track even if your interests cover more than one topic – NASPA Strategies converges four conferences in one! 

About

The convergence of the NASPA Alcohol, Other Drug, and Violence Prevention, Mental Health, Sexual Violence Prevention and Response, and the Well-Being and Health Promotion Leadership conferences allows campus practitioners a unique opportunity to learn, network and engage.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

NASPA will apply for continuing education through NBCC, NCHEC (for CHES and MCHES credits), NASW, and the APA through our partnership with the Association of University College Counseling Center Directors. The amount of credits that will be available for the conference will depend upon which sessions are selected by our conference committees. In the past, continuing education credits have been available during every breakout session block for the entirety of the conference. The full schedule and continuing education qualifications will be available by October 2019.
