For graduate students attending the NASPA Annual Conference
With the cost of college soaring, students who deviate from their recommended course path may end up spending thousands of extra dollars—not to mention extra time—completing their graduation requirements. Or, they may drop out of school altogether. In today's guest post from Molly Jacobson, project leader at Boston Consulting Group, learn how four postsecondary institutions - three universities and one community college - reformed advising on their campus to improve student success.
Who do you call when you have a burning question about technology? Chances are good you have a picture of “that one techie” in your mind right now. You know their name, and you probably have their extension memorized. Beyond that, your knowledge of who does what with technology on your campus likely gets hazy.
NASPA’s Knowledge Communities bring together student affairs educators to create and share knowledge about the work in our field. KC’s bring forth effective practices, current research, and emerging trends in student affairs. This publication represents one of the many ways the NASPA KCs create and share knowledge to support our association's strategic plan and the professional development of our membership.
Join members of NASPA’s Research and Policy Institute (RPI) at #NASPA19 to learn more about our work to connect research, policy, and effective student affairs practice in support of student success and the strategic priorities of the Association. Even if you aren’t able to join us in person in Los Angeles, you can still check out the RPI sessions that will be included as part of NASPA’s Virtual Ticket.
