2020 Core Programming

Defining Student Success

SA Pros must be innovative in our design of cross-divisional approaches that contribute to student success. We must create a holistic and supportive university environment in a manner that resonates with today’s college student.

Collaborations and Partnerships

Collaboration encourages creativity and innovation, offers a greater depth of knowledge, and introduces us to new ideas. We must cultivate new partnerships inside and outside of the academy.

Advocacy and Activism

Higher education is under scrutiny from many who question its value proposition. Student affairs educators must provide the best environment for students in an increasingly diverse student population with shifting expectations from stakeholders.

Redefining & Realigning the Student Affairs Profession

As the field and leadership diversifies, generationally, demographically, and functionally, tensions now exist among the existing narratives and the lived experience of some student affairs educators. We must evolve and realign the profession.
