NATIONAL STUDENT AFFAIRS DAY OF ACTION - JULY 17
NASPA has compiled resources and suggestions for learning and engaging in local, state, and national policy conversations relevant to student affairs professionals. CLICK HERE for access. We understand that SA Pros are sometimes hesitant to engage in active advocacy because of uncertainty about where their roles as campus employees end and their rights as private individuals begins. So, while NASPA cannot offer legal advice or guidance, there are many ways for student affairs professionals to engage politically, both as institutional employees and as private individuals. Please support this important initiative!
