2024 NASPA Annual Conference

Radical Reflections, Space for Personal and Professional Stories of Intersectional Identities at Annual Conference

It’s time to start thinking about NASPA 2024!! Sessions, pre-conferences, poster sessions and more! Did you know NASPA also offers Extended Learning Sessions (ELS) during the annual conference? These sessions are an hour and a half discussion and this year they are centered around the power of storytelling. Join us on Tuesday, March 12th from 8:30am - 10am for Radical Reflection: Minoritized Colleagues Claiming Space And Rewriting Their Story In The Academy

During this ELS, panelists ranging from students, new professionals, mid-level professionals, and senior-level colleagues in the field will share their personal and professional stories related to the intersection of identities. Come learn, discuss, and reflect on the impacts of anti-queer, anti-trans, and anti-DEI rhetoric and legislation across higher education. As these issues and legislation remain in the spotlight with the upcoming election, this ELS is one not to miss. Past attendees of Extended Learning Sessions have appreciated the extra time to delve deeper into discussions beyond traditional hour-long sessions. Make sure to select “Radical Reflection: Minoritized Colleagues Claiming Space And Rewriting Their Story In The Academy” on the conference app. We hope you will join us in Seattle!  ​​​​​​
