Welcome to SAPAA!
The leadership team is excited to lead SAPAA, support our members and the work of each committee and working group, and continue to make SAPAA one of the most valuable professional experiences for our members. We are looking forward to this year with SAPAA – our KC has a lot of momentum building off of our achievements from last year. This is sure to be another year marked by great success and accomplishment all as a result of the hard work of our SAPAA leadership team and members.
During the coming year, Dan and I look forward to moving SAPAA’s legacy of engagement forward. We hope this will translate into:
- Greater inclusion of diversity in NASPA members and leadership
- More collaborative programs with our KC colleagues
- Enhanced professional development opportunities for all SAPAA and NASPA members
- Increased integration of our graduate students in the KC
- Focused activities to promote student development and leadership across our campus
Please feel free to contact me or Dan with any suggestions, ideas, or comments you may have about the KC. We look forward to working with you during the upcoming year!
What is SAPAA?
The Student Affairs Partnering With Academic Affairs (SAPAA) Knowledge Community provides a forum for interaction among student affairs professionals serving in an academic unit within their institutions and/or those who are interested in the collaboration between student and academic affairs and how this collaboration can continue and thrive in the future. It also promotes the presentation of programs and workshops at regional and national conferences on issues related to the connection between student affairs and academic affairs. In doing so the SAPAA Knowledge Community serves to enhance the professional development of the person working in this area as well as to provide an opportunity for others to become aware of, and more familiar with, these issues. Finally, the SAPAA Knowledge Community encourages research and scholarly publication in the area of collaboration between academic and student affairs as well as promising practices at institutions.
