2024 NASPA Mid-level Administrators Conference (MLAC)

In-Person Conferences Mid-Level

The 2024 NASPA Mid-level Administrators Conference (MLAC) is a dynamic professional development event designed to provide mid-level student affairs professionals with the opportunity to engage and learn with colleagues and senior student affairs administrators. Participants will gain insights from promising practices and personal reflections to further develop their professional competencies, networking and supervisory skills, and acquire new skills and strategies to improve their professional practice. The Mid-level Administrators Conference is designed for those student affairs professionals who serve in roles between (but not including) entry-level positions and AVP (and the equivalent) roles. Additionally, professionals who have been serving in entry-level roles for at least 5 years are welcome to attend. 

As a result of this experience, participants will be able to:

  • Build and strengthen strategies for organizational leadership to include leading change, navigating institutional politics, managing resources, and supervising team members;

  • Develop the skills to manage from the middle, both internally to include staff and supervisors and externally to include stakeholders and cross-campus constituents;

  • Maximize your role to gain a deeper understanding of influence, power, and resources while advancing your professional growth; and

  • Build a go-to network of mid-level colleagues.
