Research & Assessment Committee

Earlier on Monday morning, an invitation to participate in conference assessment for SACSA 2018 inadvertently went out to the full membership of our organization rather than just those in attendance at this year's conference. We are aware of the oversight and apologize for any inconvenience. If you did not attend this year's conference, please disregard the invitation. If you did attend this year's conference, we encourage you to proceed by clicking the link included in your original email to participate in the survey.
Thank you all for your past, present, and continuing contributions to SACSA , NASPA Region III, and SCCPA. Whether you were able to join us at the beach in 2018 or had to pass this time around, we hope to see you next year in Raleigh, NC for SACSA 2019 with NASPA Region III!
