The Joy is in the Conversation

Is student affairs now about a steady, slow professional control or are those professionals primed for substantial change? Birth of the Cool – kind of change or change as fast as an old soul ballad? Will we – the student experience profession-types – still be here? Necessary? If not, who? What?

We’ve assembled a group of people to take the mic (and, hopefully, drop it) for our third Boston Confab. We are pleased that NASPA President, Kevin Kruger, is on the list as a conversation starter. Other convos include, learning from tech startups; the root of working with students; and, daring us to be creative and fresh. A panel of current students and recent graduates from throughout Boston will bring it to the day-long convo, too. And, of course, we’ll have a few drop-in performances.

The conversations and the Boston Confab is on Friday, February 21, from 8 a.m. to 4p.m. at the House of Blues Foundation Lounge — a subversively hip spot — across from Fenway Park. (As in the last two years, there is no registration fee.)
