We are excited to announce that we will be returning for our 6th year of Excellence in Student Affairs! Please be sure to mark the dates in your calendar as planning is underway to continue building upon the success of our regionally-held professional development conference.

This year’s theme, Breaking Boundaries & Building Legacies, will be honoring the amazing practices that our Student Affairs staff and faculty have implemented in improving the overall experience of our students. We recognize that our capacity to do more and create more evolves each year, and this year’s conference seeks to capitalize on the innovation that energizes and mobilizes our students, staff, and faculty.
