Knowledge Communities


Welcome to the NASPA Knowledge Communities!  The KCs exercise their goal of creating and disseminating professional knowledge and engaging in supportive communities through the involvement and leadership of members. KCs are a great way to connect with colleagues, contribute to the field of student affairs, and immerse yourself in service to the profession. The annual NASPA Knowledge Community Publication is one of many examples of the contributions of the KCs.  Explore any of the individual KCs below to learn more.

Knowledge Communities (KC) are member-driven networks that empower you to explore key topics, professional functions, and personal identities alongside other student affairs educators. KC members support community-curated resources, opportunities to leverage expertise into meaningful initiatives, and participation in developing strategies and tactics to advance key issues in higher education.
