Welcome to the NASPA Knowledge Communities, which support lifelong learning in student affairs while allowing members to confirm their commitment to and passion for the profession through their common interests.

  • First-Generation Student Success through Leadership

    My current role as the Program Coordinator for Diversity and Inclusion allows me the opportunity to provide support for first-generation college students. Our institution defines the first-generation identity as “the first in your family to attend college, or the first in your family to attend a college in the United States”. Our Center for Diversity and Inclusion oversees support for students of color, DACA/undocumented, LGBTQIA+, and first-generation student populations. As the first-generation student experience recently came into our Center’s purview, we are building a foundation for the support for this population. As I look at research around the first-generation student experience in higher education, I am consistently finding my passion for student leadership wanting to come into the conversation.

  • The Future for Student Leadership Development

    At a time when the value of higher education is being questions, this is an opportunity for our field to examine our role in the academe. What are we, as Student Leadership Professionals, doing to prepare students to deal with the challenges of climate change, humanitarian refugee and immigration crises, the gun violence epidemic, and rights and freedoms being challenged in our democracy? Student Leadership Development is uniquely positioned to expose students to not only pressing issues but also to equip students with the tools and skills needed to be informed and address the most pressing needs of our world.
