“I’m writing my story so that others might see fragments of themselves.” – Lena Waithe
One of the most powerful lifelines in a community is storytelling. We are excited to bring back the Student Affairs blog as a place to share our triumphs, struggles, moments of joy and moments of strength. This is a place for you to share your words with the higher education community.
We acknowledge that this is a time of unknowns, of high demands, new realities, and pressures from all sides. We invite you to write as a way to process this experience, share your stories, and contribute to our greater community of practitioners — as you are able and willing.
We welcome stories that address:
- Moments of brilliance in this place of uncertainty. How has your unit or campus come together to support your students, staff, faculty, and community?
- This new reality. How are you personally dealing with these changes?
- What are you seeing/hearing on-campus/from your students that we can all learn from?
- Self-Care, how this is defined by you
- Strategies for supporting each other through this time
Authors can be:
- Full-, or part-time staff in any functional area of higher education. This includes student affairs, academic affairs, enrollment management, athletics, and so on.
- Graduate students in higher education/student affairs programs.
- Undergraduate students interested in student affairs. This includes student leaders and employees working in student affairs spaces, such as resident assistants/advisors, student activities, fraternity and sorority life, and student unions.
A few things to note:
- You do not need to be a NASPA member to participate.
- This is not a place to advertise your own services (such as consulting) or businesses.
- While we value the experience of vendors, this space is not a space to sell your company.
