2024 NASPA Region III Summer Symposium

Regional Annual Conferences Region III

The NASPA Region III Summer Symposium Committee invites you to join us at the Swan and Dolphin in Orlando, Florida!  The 2024 NASPA Region III Summer Symposium is a four-day gathering of student affairs professionals who come together to reflect, learn, network and be inspired.

This year’s conference theme is "Igniting the Spark.” In order to continue building a brighter future for our students and institutions, we need to rekindle the passion we have for the work that we do and regain sight of our goals as higher education professionals.


Presented By

Region 3

Conference Focus Areas

 As we navigate increasing challenges and obstacles, we will ignite the spark through the following three focus areas:

  1. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: How can we amplify the voices of students and professionals to make a difference in the current political climate? What strategies can we use to place diversity, equity, and inclusion at the forefront of our work?

  2. Community and Collaboration: Igniting sparks is about coming together, building community, and fostering collaboration. How do we foster relationships that ignite change across campus and between our institutions? 

  3. Emergent and Responsive Practices: This theme symbolizes the belief that by igniting the spark of curiosity, inspiration, and innovation, we can create a brighter and more promising future for our students and the field of higher education. How can we build upon the initial spark to make a lasting impact in the field and beyond? Examples may include but are not limited to strategic planning and implementation, innovative applications of technology, and emerging practices in graduate education.
