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.
