The core of NASPA’s mission is to provide professional development for student affairs educators and administrators who share the responsibility for a campus wide focus on the student experience. Professional development programs at NASPA achieve this through a variety of conferences, workshops, and online learning.

Why Attend?

Online Learning Community

The Online Learning Community is home to NASPA’s online professional development offerings. Within, you’ll find OnDemand videos, Online Short Courses, Connected Conferences, and Community Groups.

Become a Volunteer

NASPA’s events are a success because of the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. From months in advance to the last day of a conference, volunteers are critically involved in every step of the process.

Some of the available volunteer opportunities include being a part of a planning committee, reviewing programs, and assisting on-site. We encourage you to create your volunteer profile on NASPA’s Volunteer Central and donate your time to an upcoming conference.

After going to another fundraising conference this winter with a broader scope, I realized how special the NASPA Fundraising and External Relations Conference is. Because our area is so unique and specific, there’s truly no other more relevant conference for student affairs advancement or external relations professionals.

I attended my first NASPA conference in January 2015 and truly enjoyed it! I enjoyed being able to meet new colleagues and see what issues they are facing and different methods we are all implementing to address sexual assault, mental health and substance abuse issues on our campuses.

As a member of the NASPA New Professionals & Graduate Students Consortium at the 2015 NASPA Annual Conference, I was able to gain a new cohort of professionals to discuss trends and our personal journeys into the field of higher education.

The Mid-Level Administrators Conference was my first NASPA conference as a student affairs professional. Listening to experts in the field empowered me to create an executive presence, become a better supervisor, build a solid network, and construct a personal mission statement. Afterwards, I was so excited about becoming a better “me!”

The Mid-Level Administrator conference exceeded my expectations. In comparison to other conferences, the Mid-Level Administrator conference encourages you to focus on your personal development and higher level thinking. The experience will leave you feeling empowered and inspired.

The NASPA New Professionals Conference was a wonderful experience. As someone who has been working full time in the profession for two years, it was exceptionally helpful to connect in a smaller setting with other new professionals from across the world. The variety of sessions allowed me to focus on both personal and professional development and I returned to campus feeling refreshed and energized.
