Register Online for 2021 NASPA Florida Virtual Drive-In Conference
The NASPA-FL Conference Committee invites you to join us for the annual drive-in conference from October 14-15, 2021 in a virtual format.
Case Study Competition
The NASPA-FL Case Study Competition is a competition for graduate students and new professionals (within their first two years of professional experience). This competition gives you the chance to apply and showcase your classroom, internship, experiential and leadership experiences all in one opportunity!
Competitors can form teams of two – three people for either the graduate student category or the new professionals category; up to ten teams can compete in each category. Each team will analyze, evaluate, and provide solutions to a thought provoking case relevant to the field of student and academic affairs. Participants will present virtually to a panel of judges comprised of student and academic affairs practitioners and faculty.
Please note: all participants must register for the NASPA-FL Drive-in Conference in order to be eligible to compete.
Registration for the annual NASPA-FL Case Study Competition will open in the summer.
