P.R.A.C.T.I.C.E.S. Fall 2018 Cohort

September 21 – January 18, 2019

P.R.A.C.T.I.C.E.S. is a powerful tool for student affairs divisions to self-assess nine critical areas: policies on campus safety, resources, work with academic affairs, compliance, technology, inclusion, community, evidence-based practice, and student success. Participants of the P.R.A.C.T.I.C.E.S. Fall 2018 Cohort will be guided by NASPA in accessing and completing the self-assessment. At the conclusion, each participating institution will receive customized reports of their assessment data.
