  • NASPA Right Now - January 2017

    The start of a new year often brings an opportunity for renewal, growth, and new beginnings. While there have been significant challenges in this academic year, I am optimistic about the future because of the passion, commitment, and energy I feel from our community. NASPA continues to engage in the integral aspects of student learning, closing the achievement gap, access and equity, and many other issues that have an impact on our students. I look forward to continuing an action-oriented and collaborative student affairs agenda that will provide meaningful support to our students, our colleagues, and our profession.

    Going to professional conferences can be refreshing, a chance to focus on your growth, a needed step away from your day to day, and a reenergizing experience, but they can also be tiring, filled with anxiety, and challenging.

I went to a recommended pizza joint, then headed to the conference. The first night there included a big social and I walked into a big room filled with people, and there was not a familiar face in sight. I learned a lot about myself that I was not expecting to learn when heading to a conference to learn more about the profession. Attending this conference alone was not easy, but I would not change a thing and I would do it again tomorrow if I could.
