2021 NASPA Annual Conference

Programs & Events

We hope to see you in Kansas City in March 2021

Today's reality is nothing like we have ever experienced. Higher education is in a significant time of transition and the ability for the student affairs profession to be agile in a time of unknowns is even more critical. The NASPA Board of Directors and the Conference Leadership Committee are hopeful that we will be able to be together again in Kansas City in 2021. Technology allows us to be alone, together - but our hope is that with planning and preparation, the NASPA family will be able to physically celebrate the annual gathering of our Association. 

The call for programs for the 2021 NASPA Annual Conference is now open! Similar to prior years, we will ask you if you are willing to present for the NASPA Virtual Ticket. There is even more of a need to ensure that we can engage our presenters in-person and virtually. Mark your calendar with the important dates on this page, and learn more about the different session types for the 2021 NASPA Annual Conference below.

Sessions and Events

The 2021 Conference Leadership Committee is hard at work planning the interactive and content-rich professional development event of the year. We will have a Keynote Speaker each day, along with Community Dialogues, Featured Educational Sessions, Concurrent Sessions, and much, much more!

Given that we were not able to connect in 2020, you will not want to miss the 2021 event! In a city vibrant with diverse cultures, amazing jazz music, and dubbed the "City of Fountains" for the nearly 200 fountains - second only to Rome, Italy. Kansas City has a sense of community, connection, and diversity that provides an environment purpose-built for networking, learning, and creativity!

The 2021 NASPA Annual Conference website will be your source for new information about how to make the most out of your NASPA experience. More will be posted soon!
