NASPA
2020 NASPA Annual Conference

Scholarly Paper Sessions

These sessions give presenters the opportunity to share scholarly papers. These papers are reviewed and selected by members of our Faculty Fellows and Faculty Council, and are assigned a discussant prior to the conference. Each 50-minute session will have three to four scholars present their paper and will be followed by comments from a discussant, as well as a facilitated question and answer session.

Scholarly papers often focus on results of quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods studies, or report the findings of studies that use historical or philosophical methods.

Sessions offer an opportunity for new and established scholars to explore emerging and relevant areas of research. For NASPA 2019 in Los Angeles, participants were encouraged to consider research issues and topics that impact our work in Belonging & Student SuccessCommunity & Democratic Engagement, and Leaning Forward to the Next 100 Years.
