2020 NASPA Virtual Highlights
Mar 28 – Apr 1 all-day

NASPA is proud to offer 2020 NASPA Virtual Highlights to connect our community with keynote speakers, share expertise from featured educational session presenters, and gather virtually for the milestones of the NASPA Annual Business Meeting and other community meetings to enable our Association to both reflect and move forward, even through uncertain times. All Virtual Highlights will be both live-streamed as well as recorded and shared, and participation is free and open to all.

The community development and collective rejuvenation that characterizes the NASPA Annual Conference is regrettably unavailable to us this year—for only the second time in over a century. We recognize that most of our institutions remain in a rapidly-evolving state of crisis management and preparation for an unclear future. Our 2020 NASPA Virtual Highlights were developed to provide the NASPA family an opportunity to engage with exceptional learning and virtual community building, both live and OnDemand, in a format that is open to all. We hope you will join us.

Webinar: Unpacking & resisting neoliberalism in student affairs assessment
Apr 1 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

The Student Affairs Assessment Leaders (SAAL) Professional Development Committee wants to inform you about their next SAAL Structured Conversation scheduled titled “unpacking & resisting neoliberalism in student affairs assessment” on Wednesday, April 1 from 1:00pm-2:00pm EST.

As student affairs becomes assessment-savvy, our collective focus (foci?) is taken away from humans, away from emotional development. Instead, we use specific data points to observe and measure cognitive abilities as we are taught to assess by the textbook and testing industry. We are encouraged to be efficient. We are told to be data-driven. What does that really mean? Are we meeting the needs of people (the helpers) that chose to enter our profession? Are we assessing evidence to benefit our students?
