North Carolina Central University's Division of Student Affairs will serve as the co-host for the National Association of Student Affairs Professionals 63rd Annual Conference, set for Feb. 16-18 at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center.
This year's conference theme is "A New Direction: Prepare. Innovate. Collaborate." NASAP is on the leading edge regarding issues, solutions, and professional development opportunities for student affairs professionals serving at Historically Black Colleges and Universities and for those professionals who serve minority populations in diverse settings around the country. The annual conference provides a forum for professional growth and development for all who are involved in work with students in the student affairs profession. The conference is open to professionals in higher education in general and to the nation's business industry.
The conference welcomes the integral involvement of undergraduate and graduate students and student leaders from member schools. Concurrent student-focused conference sessions provide professional and student attendees the opportunity to learn, network, and create lasting friendships that endure beyond the conference.
"We are excited to have our colleagues from all over the nation at this year's conference," said Gary Brown, interim vice chancellor for student affairs. "This is an opportunity for us to share best practices with other student affairs professionals and find ways to think outside of the box and collaborate," he added.
In addition to various sessions, conference goers will participate in a special luncheon sponsored by the American Heart Association and an Closing Dinner Awards Program.
