Equity and Diversity

The Equity and Diversity focus area emphasizes social justice and the continued diversification in today’s higher education environment. From recent court decisions and new legislation to diversification of the profession’s workforce, NASPA recognizes the impact that Equity and Diversity has on our professionals. Through our identity-base Knowledge Communities, NASPA events, the Commission on Equity and Inclusion, and writing and research opportunities, NASPA provides resources and creates communities around these issues, creating ample opportunities for involvement and support which enables growth and understanding in the student affairs profession.
