A common theme to my professional experience has been involvement in an association called NASPA – Student Affairs Professional in Higher Education. I was pulled in as early as graduate school, and openly express drinking the NASPA kool-aide. Recently I have also began to get involved ACPA, finding similar energy serving on the digital task force. I’ll say it, if I could attend and be part of all higher education associations I would do it.
This week is the NASPA annual conference, held in New Orleans called “Navigating with Courage.”
I am completely honored that I will be presented three awards from the research I have been working on over the last year:
- Student Leadership Program Dr. Susan R. Komives Research Award
- Technology Knowledge Community Research, Assessment and Evaluation Innovation Award
- NASPA Foundation Briggs Small Research Grant
It has only been until recently that I have moved beyond volunteer leadership roles, to being an active contributor of knowledge at regional and national conferences. In other words, presenting educational sessions.
I’d like to feature what sessions I will be presenting this year, which I am thrilled to be included in six opportunities! Whether you are here with us at New Orleans or not, you can follow along the backchannel to most of my sessions with the Twitter hashtag #saSoMe.
