NASPA
2022 NASPA Annual Conference

SA Speaks and SA Unscripted

Student Affairs (SA) Speaks  are dynamic opportunities for participants to engage with colleagues in thinking about innovative ways to address issues facing their campuses and students.

SA Speaks

These 10-minute talks will allow attendees to view the world from the perspective of the presenter. This year, we invite you to submit along the theme of

TRIUMPH

As we gather together for the first time in two years, we want to hear your stories of hope, of joy, and of glory. We want to hear about big wins and small successes, about career-defining epics and about what went right today. This year, SA Speaks is all about those moments of victory—those times when the struggle was worth it, hardship was vanquished, and (however briefly) right was achieved.

SA Unscripted

Attendees will have an opportunity to be a part of an intimate conversation between two student affairs professionals on a particular topic of relevance to the conference content areas or the current professional landscape.

What is SA Speaks? Check out these examples from the 2019 NASPA Annual Conference. 


SA Unscripted

SA Unscripted is designed to highlight the voices of student affairs professionals in conversation with their colleagues. SA Unscripted sessions are meant to be a conversation, not a debate, with a level of intentionality, engagement, and authenticity to help audience members engage with the topic and continue the conversations with their colleagues beyond the session. There will be an opportunity for audience members to engage in a short Q&A after the conversation.
