NASPA
2019 NASPA Annual Conference

Extended Learning Sessions

We recognize that some topics are not able to be explored in a traditionally 50-minute concurrent session, and NASPA will offer several extended sessions at this year’s Annual Conference. The 2019 CLC is working hard on developing these sessions and registration will open October 2, 2018.

These two-hour extended workshops will provide participants with opportunities to critically engage with colleagues and experts in on a variety of topics and identify strategic collaborative approaches for addressing current and emerging challenges in the work of student affairs and services. Past extended sessions have included topics for graduate preparation faculty, chief diversity officers, vice presidents, and practitioners who work in equity and inclusion. Most sessions are included with your 2019 NASPA Annual Conference registration and may require participants to register separately. Extended sessions will take place on Monday, March 11th and Tuesday, March 12th.

    Legislation in Higher Education:  A Mock Senate Simulation

    Legislation in Higher Education:  A Mock Senate Simulation

    Understanding issues facing higher education and the role our civic processes play in navigating those issues is an important step in developing civic-minded campuses and professionals. Learn about the legislative process and some of those key issues by participating in a mock senate simulation as a witness delivering testimony before the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, & Pensions. This character-playing mock senate simulation will enable you to research, craft, and deliver compelling testimony before a demanding senate committee and face challenging questioning and scrutiny from senators. This session is open to anyone interested in experiencing the legislative process.
