2020 NASPA Annual Conference

Innovative Programs

The Innovative Programming Committee for the 2020 NASPA Annual Conference in Austin is excited to target sessions, content, and conversations that explore a new vision for student affairs, focusing not only on new ways of doing (i.e., programs and practices), but knowing and being (i.e., developing as practitioners in the field).


Innovation is a difficult word to understand, as it means something different to each person. For the 2020 NASPA Annual Conference in Austin, the Innovative Programming Committee is excited to provide attendees with an opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue and learning related to their definition of innovation:

"Applying creativity and technology in new ways to solve problems"

Event Programming

The Innovative Programming Committee is currently in the process of identifying captivating sessions which match the above definition for the 2020 NASPA Annual Conference. The Innovative Programming will take on two forms:

Idea Accelerators

Idea and solution-oriented sessions designed to inspire and ignite creativity. 

Learning Labs

Hands-on opportunities to test new products to discover new ideas.

Please note, the committee is still in the process of identifying programs and solidifying the event schedule. Check back often as new details will be updated regularly.
