2021 NASPA Annual Conference

Poster Sessions


Poster sessions showcase research and/or institution programs. Unlike a general interest session, a poster session allows viewers to study and re-study information and discuss it with practitioners one-on-one. It combines text and graphics to make a visually pleasing presentation. As viewers walk by, posters quickly and efficiently communicate a presenter's topic in an engaging way.

Engage with Poster Sessions

The poster sessions will be displayed at the NASPA Commons beginning on throughout the conference. Attendees are encouraged to peruse the poster displays as an opportunity to gain knowledge on initiatives, research findings, and best practices of a variety of topics. Although the displays are meant to be self-guided, there is an opportunity to engage with the presenters at the following times:  

  • Monday, March 30 | 2:45 p.m. - 3:35 p.m.
  • Tuesday, March 31 | 2:45 p.m. - 3:35 p.m.

Presenter Tips

Poster displays should include:

  • a statement of the problem;
  • objectives of the research, project, or program;
  • methodology used to solve the problem or implement the program;
  • major findings or outcomes and their significance; and,
  • conclusions.

If your poster session is accepted, you will be asked to email a picture file in .JPG format to a member of the Conference Leadership Committee to be uploaded to the conference site. 

Don't forget

Presenters are responsible for supplying all display materials and handouts. There will be specific times in the conference schedule for presenters to remain at the display board to answer questions and engage attendees. If your poster session includes electrical equipment, please plan to provide your own source of power (e.g., batteries). No electrical support or internet connections are available in the poster session area, so please prepare for this ahead of time.
