The Council on Student Affairs (CSA) provides a forum specifically for the most senior student affairs officer at member institutions, where they can discuss issues often unique to major public higher education institutions; be directly involved with the development and promotion of national higher education policy; and advance the role of student affairs in their own campus settings. The topics and content of CSA programmatic sessions reflect this aim. The resources on this page present any materials and/or slides publicly available from CSA sessions. Each section corresponds with a different APLU or CSA related event.
No session recordings are provided.
