Program Reviewer

To shape a high-quality learning experience, the #ACPA22 Program Team needs a diverse team of reviewers from all functional areas of higher education, tertiary education, and student affairs and services. Representation is needed from all career levels, including graduate and entry, mid and senior-level professionals, as well as faculty and career adjacent professionals.. ACPA members of color, native or indigenous, trans members, women, members with disabilities, and members with other minoritized or historically-marginalized identities are encouraged to participate as program proposal reviewers.

As a reviewer, you provide feedback to individuals submitting proposals, learn more about best practices and initiatives in higher education, and gain professional development experience in evaluating proposals.   

When you apply to serve as a reviewer, you indicate the types of sessions and topic areas you feel qualified to review given your experiences and knowledge/skill level in each of the ACPA/NASPA Professional Competencies for Student Affairs Educators. We intend to do our best to match you with proposals that align with your indicated knowledge/skills.The ACPA22 Program team will provide you with a variety of resources and tools to guide your reviews, ensuring that you have support along the way.
