Educators: Join Us at NCCWSL!
Educators from across the country attend NCCWSL each year to network with peers, discuss and debate changes taking hold on today’s campuses, and take advantage of career development programming curated specifically for student affairs educators and administrators.
Why attend NCCWSL?
- Networking: NCCWSL is a space for educators to come together with colleagues from across the country to discuss leadership theories and best practices. At our private reception you’ll mingle with dozens of other professionals, share insight on your campus’s leadership development programs, and lend advice for building opportunities for your students.
- Skill-building workshops. We offer dozens of workshops for students at NCCWSL, but a select number of workshops are curated specifically with educators in mind. These sessions will teach you practical leadership and professional development skills and educate you on policies affecting your campus.
- Educational panel sessions. This year, for the first time, we will bring together experts in academia, business, technology, public policy, health care and more to discuss and debate today’s most pressing issues.
Help Us Get Your Students to NCCWSL
- First time sending students to the conference? Check out our resources for campus administrators and educators.
- Encourage students to apply for scholarships. Every year AAUW offers thousands of dollars in scholarships to students to attend NCCWSL. We offer both full and partial scholarships based on financial need, merit, and availability. Our scholarship application closes February 28, 2018, at 11:59 p.m.
- Bring (or send) a group of students. You will receive a 15 percent discount when you register at least four attendees.
- Nominate students to attend. Even if you’re not planning on taking a group to NCCWSL this year, you can still promote it on your campus. Nominate promising student leaders from your school to attend the conference on their own.
Want to get more involved? We offer a number of volunteer opportunities for educators.
- Apply to be a NCCWSL steering committee member.
NCCWSL would not be possible without our dedicated volunteers. Coordinating preconference activities in our host location, leveraging professional networks to market the conference, and lending expertise in student life to guide program content are just some of the ways you can help bring our conference to life. We encourage you apply, no matter where your institution is located. Our 2018 committee is currently filled. We’ll start building our 2019 team in August; in the meantime read on for more opportunities to get involved.
- Attend NCCWSL as a day-of production volunteer.
Assist our committee for a few hours or a whole day on-site at the conference.
- Volunteer to review workshop proposals or scholarship applications.
We receive hundreds of submissions each year. Our teams of reviewers ensure the right candidates are selected to receive financial assistance or participate at NCCWSL.
- Facilitate a leadership workshop.
We offer a slate of skill-building workshops geared towards both student attendees and campus professionals. Our 2018 application is now closed, but check back in the fall for our 2019 proposal schedule.
- Write for us. Looking for a chance to get published? We welcome guest writers who can give our collegiate audience on career and leadership advice.
To get involved with any of the activities above, please submit an interest form. We review applications on a rolling basis and will be in touch as positions become available.
