2020 NASPA Annual Conference

Program and Events

#NASPA2020 is going to offer unforgettable learning.

Higher education is in a time of critical transition. While the current public narrative challenges the value of postsecondary education, student affairs educators must focus on the fundamental roles of supporting student learning and degree completion. From defining student success to developing collaborative partnerships, developing effective advocacy in our work and with our students, and redefining student affairs roles, there is much work to do in order to determine the path forward for the student affairs profession.

The Call for Programs for the 2020 NASPA Annual Conference is now closed. Thank you to each person who submitted—we received an extraordinary number of exceptional program proposals. 

The program review process is underway, and the 2020 Conference Leadership Committee will make final selections in October. We know it's hard to wait, but we assure you that we will notify all submitters as soon as we are able. Thanks again for being a part of #NASPA2020!
