NASPA: Participant Preview

With Dr. Jason Pina, Dr. Gage Paine & Cory Davis

Thank you for making “What’s Up in the Academy?” the #1 Substack for Higher Education 

For the first time since Spring of 2019, Student Affairs professionals will be gathering for the NASPA, Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Eduction conference. On the latest episode of “Office Hours with Dr. De Veau” members of the Think Tank came together to discuss their hopes for the conference. While participation will be smaller than in years past, we all agreed that perhaps, this will make for a new dawn in conference participation. Listen and let us know what YOU are hoping for!

Tune in for Upcoming Shows:
March 9th
, College is often the first time in a person’s life when money management skills are needed. But, most young adults do not receive “Financial Literacy” education and are left to their own devices to make financial decisions. Many overspend, take on too much debt, and don’t think about planning for the future. While there is no shortage of online personal finance content, many young adults are not aware of their knowledge gaps or motivated to learn independently. The Babson Financial Literacy Project (BFLP) is a not-for-profit program that prepares young adults to manage their financial futures. On Wednesday, March 9 at 12Noon ET,  will welcome Robin Kahn, Program Director of the BFLP and faculty member, Jennifer Bethel to tell us more about the program. 

March 16th, “Reimagining Residence Life” with Dr. Cissy Petty, VP for Student Affairs and her team from the Office of Residence Life. Resident Assistants have been the front line for Residence Life for Generations. In the fall of 2021, George Washington University in Washington, DC launched their new residence life staffing model, where RAs were no longer part of the equation. What gave the GW team the will to take on this behemoth in the tradition of student affairs, and what has the first semester of the new program taught them? Wednesday, March 16 at 12Noon ET

If you are attending the NASPA National Conference in March 19 - 23 in Baltimore, be sure to be on the lookout for Dr. De Veau on the Street! Laura will be hosting multiple live broadcasts from the conference, and looking for participants to take part in person and virtually!
