Conduct at NASPA Events

Engaging in Appropriate Conduct at NASPA Events

It is the policy of NASPA not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, gender identity, gender expression, affectional or sexual orientation, veteran status, or disability in any of its policies, programs, publications, and services. NASPA prohibits discrimination and harassment at any time, including during its events or within publications and online learning communities.

NASPA participants are expected to conduct themselves in all NASPA capacities, events, and settings with:

  • Consideration and respect in their speech and actions and in their personal, professional and business conduct;
  • Honesty in their professional relationships;
  • Respect for individuals’ personal boundaries and conduct;
  • Behavior that is free from:
    • Demeaning, discriminatory, insulting, or harassing language or actions, in person or online;
    • Harassment of any kind, including but not limited to unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment.

If you experience or witness discrimination or harassment at a NASPA program/event or occurring while you or others have acted in a NASPA-related capacity, we encourage you to report the incident to a member of the NASPA staff. Reports can be made online, through the conference mobile app, paper form (available from staff at the registration desk), or by email to Stephanie Gordon, Vice President for Professional Development, at sgordon@naspa.org. You can report anonymously or share your name and contact information for follow-up by NASPA staff.
