Three levels of services to serve your division's unique needs.

Our multiple services build incrementally on each other, including in increased, and gradually more nuanced, outcomes. NASPA stresses only the highest and consistent quality in process and outcomes for each service offering. All services are focused on strengthening your student affairs or services division, and are not considered a ranking, rating, scoring, or form of accreditation.


Register today for NASPA’s guided self-assessment program. Early bird registration deadline is 1/8/21 ($795/member, $950/non-member) and regular registration deadline is 1/15/21 ($915/member, $1070/non-member). P.R.A.C.T.I.C.E.S. investigates nine critical areas within divisions of student affairs. The Spring 2021 cohort will launch in January 2021. NASPA staff will review the P.R.A.C.T.I.C.E.S. framework in greater detail, create a customized web portal, and with the guidance of your division, assign student affairs staff to specific modules. Institutions will receive P.R.A.C.T.I.C.E.S. reports for each module completed that detail potential areas of strength and further review in May 2021. Participant institutions will get access to two complimentary live briefing registrations from the P.R.A.C.T.I.C.E.S. professional development series.
