NASPA II Regional Conference 2018:
Call for Programs

Educational programs will aid us in reflecting on our collective and individual goals, passions, and the purposes of NASPA and student affairs. To help make this year’s conference a success and learning opportunity, we are asking our many talented staff and faculty across the region to consider submitting a program proposal. We want to acknowledge the contributions of those who have dedicated their lives as educators, developers, mentors, and service providers for our students and strive for a social and just society. Guided by the mission of NASPA, we will provide diverse programs, positions, departments, and institutions and reflect on how they impact students across our region.

We encourage presenters to focus on the four pillars of NASPA - Inquiry, Inclusion, Integrity, and 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. In honoring our mission, proposals may reflect the core of what NASPA means to them and how their program embodies the organization's guiding principles.

Proposals will be evaluated based on the following: content, relevance, and the Professional Competency Areas for Student Affairs Practitioners Professional Competency Areas for Student Affairs, evidence of clearly stated outcomes and objectives, contribution to the knowledge and practice of student affairs, and adherence to program submission guidelines.

  • Please submit demographic information for the coordinating presenter, and complete all of the fields below.
  • Consider the best format for your program. This year we are offering general programs, “ignite sessions,” and “conversations that matter” formats. See the submission form for more details on each of these formats.
