NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, with its 15,000 members is the leading professional association for the advancement, health, and sustainability of the student affairs profession.
On June 5-7, NASPA Region II Conference will be held in New York City, at Jone Jay College of Criminal Justice. Over 600 higher education professionals will connect and share with each other new information, innovative ideas, and collaborative projects in advancing support and services to students at diverse colleges and universities.
I’m sure many are looking forward to meeting Dr. Kevin Kruger, NASPA President, and Dr. Shaun R. Harper, Executive Director, Center for the Study of Race and Equity in Education, The University of Pennsylvania at the conference.
I will be chairing a session on “Supporting International Student Success” on Monday, June 6.
Here is the abstract: As the number of international students grow on many campuses, student affairs professionals are facing increasing demand for support services and strategies that are cost-efficient, scalable and sustainable to serve this diverse group of students. Collaboration across campus for shared resources and programming becomes critical in achieving these goals. This interactive session will discuss strategies and experiences from three different perspectives–Office of International Student and Scholars Services, Academic Advising and Career Services.
The co-presenters are:
- Erika Rohrbach, Director of International Student Services, Fashion Institute of Technology
- Leah McNally, Academic Advisor-International, Pace University
- Vyju Manian, Senior Associate Director, Center for Career Education, Columbia University
