About

Greetings from the Conference Chair

Welcome to the 2019 Region I Conference Website!

The regional conference has always been a place to come together to learn from one another, reconnect with colleagues and friends, create new relationships, celebrate achievements, and highlight the outstanding work that we are accomplishing as a region.

The beautiful city of Providence, Rhode Island will be once again the backdrop for our time together. I hope you take advantage of all the conference has to offer, but also take time to explore the city known as the “Creative Capital" to enjoy its abundant educational resources and vibrant arts community.

As we grow as a region, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to engage our members. My team and I will continue the tradition of providing quality programming that will inspire you, energize you, and motivate you to create positive and impactful change on your campuses.

Our regional conference is located on the ancestral territory of the Narragansett and Wampanoag people. As part of NASPA's efforts to enact social justice and inclusive practives, this acknowledgement serves as reminder that before the conference site was settled, it has been long occupied by people who have a distict linguistic, cultural, and historical connection to this location.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me, or any member of my team, as we are here to provide you with a positive conference experience.

Sincerely,

Alana Anderson

2019 Region I Conference Chair

Receive individual resume coaching and apply constructive feedback 4. Learn from a panel of student affairs professionals about career pathways and the skills and experience looked for by hiring managers when filling positions (please note that in order to provide individualized time with participants, this session is only open to 30 members)

 Assessment Boot Camp

Assessment Boot Camp

Monday, November 18th • 09.00 AM – 12.00 PM

this session focuses on demystifying assessment in student affairs through knowledge and culture building. Guides found online often use dense language, are unnecessarily long, and have overly complex tools that are off-putting. Conference presentations often focus on a specific initiative or provide highly technical material, where my presentation will focus on making assessment work less daunting and engaging new professionals to build early competencies while encouraging growth for colleagues and the general office culture around assessment.

Presented by
Dr. Michael B. Bliss Jr., UMASS Lowell

Target Audience: New/Entry-Level Professionals & Mid-Level Managers
