NASPA
2020 NASPA Annual Conference

NASPA Connected Conference

Work at a California institution that restricts funds to travel to Texas? Please join us for our NASPA Connected Conference at San Jose State University!

Due to HB 3859 in Texas, California does not allow state funds to be used to travel or conduct business in the state of Texas. We knew that we could not move forward with #NASPA2020 in Austin without a plan to also support our colleagues in California. To serve that end, we are pleased to announce that the NASPA Connected Conference will be held at San Jose State University simultaneous to the NASPA Annual Conference. We are working diligently to ensure our colleagues in California have the opportunity to present, network, and learn together, as well as connect virtually to the best content streaming live from #NASPA2020.

For more information, please contact Jace Kirschner at jkirschner@naspa.org.

Call for Programs

The Call for Programs is now closed. Decisions will be shared with presenters in mid-October.

NASPA's Connected Conference Committee invites employees from California institutions to submit proposals for the 2020 NASPA Connected Conference. 

The 2020 NASPA Connected Conference will focus on 4 core topic areas, aligned with the core areas of the 2020 NASPA Annual Conference:

  • Defining Student Success
  • Collaborations and Partnerships
  • Advocacy and Activism
  • Redefining and Realigning the Student Affairs Profession

Additionally, we will consider programs that have a special emphasis on the issues for which Californians are not traveling to Texas (e.g.: LGBTQIA support; immigration policies).
