Chicago, Illinois welcomes NASPA Region IV-West & East for their Joint Conference, Nov. 6-8, 2022. 

Our theme, WEnvision Our Future, captures the essence of the West/East (WE) partnership and the power we have as two large regions to shape the future of our profession. It is a call to think differently about a changing higher education landscape, and to take ownership of our role in shaping our future together. Through inspiring keynote presentations, thought-provoking educational sessions and institutes, and numerous opportunities to reconnect with colleagues and make new friends, the NASPA IV-W/E 2022 joint conference will be a premier, future-focused professional development experience.

Land Acknowledgement

Before planning for the 2022 NASPA Region IV-W and IV-E Joint Conference commences, we want to begin this process by recognizing the Council of the Three Fires - Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi, as well as the Menominee, Miami, and Ho-Chunk Nations, as the first peoples of the location known today as Chicago, Illinois. As our understanding of the historical and contemporary relationships Indigenous peoples have with the lands and waters of this locale grows, we have tasked ourselves with critically integrating this knowledge into the building of this conference context. Through these conscious efforts, we seek to humbly decolonize our sensibilities about place and the ways we engage who we are in relation to it.
