Call for Programs

Program Proposal Deadline: July 24, 2024
Presenters will be notified of the program status no later than August 9, 2024

The NASPA-FL Conference Committee is seeking innovative program proposals for this year's drive-in conference, and encourages presenters to focus on the four pillars of NASPA:

  • Inquiry

  • Inclusion

  • Integrity

  • Innovation

The values of our organization reflect the spirit, purpose, and curiosity of its members.  As student affairs professionals and NASPA members, we strive to offer leadership, scholarship, and professional development to student affairs professionals.  In honoring our mission, proposals may address what the mission of NASPA means to them and how their program embodies the organization’s guiding principles.

Proposals will be evaluated based on content; relevance to the pillars; evidence of clearly stated outcomes and objectives; contribution to the knowledge and practice of student affairs; and adherence to program submission guidelines.

There are two types of programs being offered at this year's NASPA-FL Drive-In Conference. 

  • 45-minute general program session focusing on any area of student affairs.

  • 30-minute “Spotlight” session featuring best practices in any area of student affairs

For questions, please contact Heather A. Kenney at [email protected]


We are also accepting applications for Program Reviewers.
