2019 NECPA Summit

NECPA Summit Thursday, May 16 2019 at University of Rhode Island

Social Justice in Higher Education

At New England College Personnel Association, we are focused on student development across all functional areas and professional levels. In partnership with our parent association, ACPA – College Student Educators International, we strive to promote social justice education and educate higher education students and professionals on anti-oppressive, liberatory, and critical frameworks.

This year’s Summit encompasses a focus on this mission of providing professional development around social justice education. Join us from 9-4:30 on May 16, 2019 at the University of Rhode Island at the 2019 Annual Summit, where speakers will focus on topics related to the need for equity and unity within all groups in higher education.

The day’s schedule is available. We will post more details as our sessions are finalized.

Featured Speaker – Annemarie Vaccaro, College Student Personnel Graduate Program Director URI

Dr. Vaccaro has a firm commitment to improving social justice across developments in education. She is involved in many social justice programs (LGBT Fellows), events (Women’s Leadership Initiative), and committees (e.g., Equity Council, President’s LGBTQ Commission, Academic Affairs Diversity Task Force) at the University of Rhode Island. Over the past decade, she has volunteered for numerous professional leadership and committee roles in NASPA and ASHE. One of her current roles is an editorial board member for the NASPA Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice. Dr Vaccaro is an inspiration to all, focusing her teaching, research and scholarship on areas solely driven to addresses the inequalities across genders, cultures and social injustices.
