National Student Affairs Day of Action

Policy and Advocacy
January 1, 2020

We encourage you to engage with our representative democracy and uplift the voice of student affairs professionals across the county. For tips and topical resources to take action please explore this page for more.


We invite you to join #SAadvocates from around the country by taking part in NASPA’s National Student Affairs Day of Action! Some actions you could take include:

  • Sending a text or phone call to your local representative about an issue you care about.
  • Raising awareness about civic engagement.
  • Taking a trip to your state capitol.
  • Writing a letter to your Congressional or state legislative representatives.
  • Supporting voter registration efforts.
  • Engaging in deliberative discourse on your campus or in your community.

To support our colleagues in engaging in the National Student Affairs Day of Action, NASPA staff have compiled resources and suggestions for learning and engaging in local, state, and national policy conversations relevant to student affairs professionals.
