Law and Policy

Local, state, and federal laws as well as institutional policy affect the practice of student affairs professionals every day in their work to educate students. The Law and Policy focus area highlights the need for up-to-date information and accurate data, providing resources through the Research and Policy Institute (RPI), NASPA conferences and certificate programs, and the public policy division. NASPA provides timely and focused professional development opportunities to educate student affairs professionals about the legal, compliance, and policy issues relevant in higher education today.

If your interest in policy work is more issue-based, you may be searching for the answers to what this all means now that results are in. How does a night of history-making play out on the ground, and how will these state and federal results impact local higher education communities? This post by NASPA assistant director of policy research and advocacy Diana Ali will dig into some of the outcomes, including early indications of record voter turnout on college campuses, to provide insight into these questions.

  • Loot Camp and Searching for Scholarships

    Most scholarship support focuses on high school students, and literacy programs help fulfill federal requirements for current students, but transforming lives requires working with the students in our orientations, residence halls, and campus offices.
