Description

Professional Competencies are intended to define the broad professional knowledge, skills, and disposition expected of student affairs professionals, regardless of their area of specialization or positional role within the field. The original competencies were established and approved by both Boards in July 2010. In October 2014, the ACPA Governing Board and the NASPA Board of Directors announced the creation of a joint Professional Competencies Task Force. The charge of this Task Force was to review, update, and revise the ACPA/NASPA Professional Competencies for Student Affairs Practitioners and to ensure that competencies were up-to-date with current scholarship and practice. Of particular note, the Task Force was charged with reviewing the threads of technology, sustainability, and globalism to determine whether these areas of practice required the creation of additional competency areas or a reframing of existing ones.  In April 2015, NASPA and ACPA provided opportunities for members to provide feedback on the proposed changes. On this episode of Student Affairs Live, host Tony Doody talks with task force members John Hoffman (representing NASPA) and Patty Perillo (representing ACPA) about process, proposed changes, feedback from members, and implications for the field.
