Conference Chair Welcome

Welcome to Imagining the Possibilities: Exploring Opportunities in Student Affairs!

Before March 2020, we viewed our sense of professional security in Student Affairs across a spectrum of opportunities and challenges, with which we were familiar. Tasked to rebuild beyond the temporary scaffolding of the past year, we as student affairs professionals are the experts that will help guide our students and institutions through the conditions ahead of us. The Southern California Careers in Student Affairs Day (SCCSAD) brings a broad range of institutions together to reimagine our field’s future. While we will not meet in person, our Western Region VI and SCCSAD Committee remain dedicated to providing a virtual environment where presenter’s speakers and attendees will explore their journeys and the tools required to thrive, innovate and sustain our profession.

Co-hosted by Claremont Graduate University and Harvey Mudd College, the conference day has been designed for undergraduate students considering a career in student affairs or selecting a graduate program, graduate students entering or exploring the field, and new to mid-level professionals seeking to recalibrate and advance in their careers. It is a unique opportunity to build a local network, learn and share useful knowledge, and come together with a broad range of professionals to consider next steps for our individual careers and the field.
