ACPA Philly Drive-In: Where Academic and Student Affairs Meet

ACPA conference

November 3, 2017 | 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
Cost: $20/registration

Join the ACPA Commission for Academic Affairs, the Pennoni Honors College Center for Interdisciplinary Inquiry, and Drexel University Student Life for an exciting day of programming designed specifically for higher education professionals and administrators across student and academic affairs. Building collaborative working relationships across student support services, academic support services, and faculty is key to our students' scholarly and personal wellbeing. Through thoughtful small group discussions, informative workshops, and a live case study competition we hope to bring together the "two sides of the house" for a day of cooperative learning where we can begin to understand each others perspectives, learn each others' language, and build mutually beneficial professional best practices, regardless of our differing roles and titles.
