Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice Division

The Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Division raises the visibility of issues related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice in the Association and the student affairs profession. The Division's work aligns closely with NASPA's commitment to equity and justice.

The Division provides practical strategies and assists with professional development opportunities that encourage NASPA members’ commitment to and advancement of those principles. The Division includes representatives from NASPA constituent groups and regions. Together, these representatives work closely with NASPA staff to provide timely, comprehensive expertise to members on social justice and equity issues occurring at the national, state and local levels.

Message from the Division Chair

Welcome to the NASPA Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Division web page! College and university campuses across the country are grappling with upheavals in local and national politics — and assessing the implications for race relations and a myriad of other social justice issues. In this environment, our commitment to equity and inclusion is more critical than ever at NASPA, on our campuses, and around the world. We invite all NASPA members to work with the Division to evaluate and support the organization’s inclusion of those with diverse perspectives and backgrounds.
As the JEDI Division Director, I serve on the NASPA Board of Directors and work closely with NASPA Vice President for Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Monica Nixon. If you would like to inform us of equity and inclusion efforts that you or others are advancing as NASPA members, please contact Dr. Nixon at [email protected].
