Conference Themes & Suggested Topics

  • Topic Ideas

    This year’s conference theme is Seeing the Invisibles. We want to not only focus on the mission of NASPA, but on how the missions of our programs, departments, and institutions impact our students. 

    We want to honor those who have dedicated their lives as educators, developers, mentors, and service providers for our students. We recognize and honor the efforts student affairs professionals have made towards encouraging social justice and the continued work needed to create an equitable and just society. We encourage presenters to focus on the four pillar's of NASPA - Inquiry, Inclusion, Integrity, and Innovation. The values of our organization reflect the spirit, purpose, and curiosity of its members. As student affairs professionals and NASPA members, we strive to offer leadership, scholarship, and professional development to student affairs. In honoring our mission, proposals may address what the mission of NASPA means to them and how their program embodies the organization's guiding principles.
