The 2019 annual conference was held at the University of Iowa, Iowa City on October 10-11, 2019. Join your student affairs colleagues for a day and a half of peer trainings, camaraderie, and the energy to shift forward into our ever changing professional landscape.
The conference schedule contains four programming sessions, two meals, an evening social, an institutional tour, and the annual ISPA general membership business meeting. Our keynote speaker is Dr. Jonathan Poullard. In addition, we are offering an optional October 10 pre-conference SSAO meeting & training with Dr. Sherry Watt.
A limited number of graduate student waivers are available. Mentoring, resume review, and mock interviewing opportunities are planned for graduate students and new professionals.
