As graduate students and young professionals in student affairs, we are embarking on a journey into the professional world of Higher Education. The landscape of student affairs is ever-changing, and we must be prepared to navigate it. Questions of access, diversity, financial concerns and the roles of student affairs professionals are on the forefront of discussions being held in student affairs. We have a vested interest in this discussion.
Come join us to explore these questions and more as we discuss the world of student affairs at the 3rd Annual Student Personnel Young Professional Learning Network Conference. Spread your wings and marvel at what we can achieve when we take to the skies.
