Presented By


The NASPA Conferences on Student Success in Higher Education convenes the student success-focused community to engage in important professional development, exchange innovative ideas, and network with peers. You will engage with content from the Assessment Persistence, and Data Analytics Conference, First-generation Student Success Conference, and the inaugural Dismantling Systemic Barriers to Student Success Conference in our place-based Denver conference or through a virtual event platform.

The Dismantling Systemic Barriers to Student Success Conference is a convergence of the former Student Financial Wellness Conference and the Closing the Achievement Gap Conference with the addition of exciting expanded content. This new conference will debut and join the Assessment, Persistence, and Data Analytics Conference and First-generation Student Success Conference. Conference programming will foster important dialogue to uncover pervasive barriers and prompt strategic change in institutional approaches for serving students and advancing outcomes.

In addition to a robust selection of educational programming, the conferences will offer multiple dynamic keynotes, thought-provoking pre-conference workshops, exhibit hall offerings, and active engagement with attendees and presenters.

The NASPA Conferences on Student Success in Higher Education is your opportunity to take a cross-functional approach to student success when it has never been more important.


The 2021 NASPA Conferences on Student Success in Higher Education will offer an innovative way to engage remotely or safely in-person through: 

  • Multiple days of curated content facilitated by subject-matter experts from all three conference tracks;

  • Educational sessions, connections to presenters and attendees, and access to resources for virtual and place-based attendees; 

  • Thoughtful presentations from featured speakers to strengthen your knowledge base;

  • Opportunities to engage and network with other attendees; 

  • An exhibit hall for real-time engagement with sponsors & exhibitors; and

  • Safely-designed opportunities to engage in our in-person conference content.

We hope you’ll join us! Registration will open in January 2021.
