Message from the Chair

On behalf of the 2021 Planning committee, I am very honored to announce that the 2021 Western Regional Conference will be in San Francisco, CA, on Ohlone, Ramaytush, and Muwekma Ohlone land. 

In November of 2021, We will be exploring the theme “Courageous and Resilient Leadership: Together We Rise”. We are experiencing a time like no other in our communities and on our campuses - where student affairs professionals at every level have been confronted with enormous challenges never imagined before, and we have responded with courage and resilience, oftentimes abruptly and with urgency. Our professional, social, political and personal worlds have collided and Higher Education as we know it has been changed forever. We have so many critical conversations to share.

My hope is that we are re-inspired and hopeful for a better future again in our space together in San Francisco. And finally after a year of countless event cancellations, we are optimistic that we will have the opportunity to gather together in person, to learn from each other, to celebrate the work we have done, and to be in community again. We will need to heal and reaffirm one  another. Right now our work is greater and even more important! Let us come together to forge a better future for our profession, our students, and our campuses. WRC 2021 will provide us opportunities to reflect, recenter, and rediscover our purpose - Together We Rise. 

NASPA family, Iʻll see you in San Francisco in 2021!
