Share |

SACSA members have access to a variety of events and professional development opportunities to facilitate their growth within the fields of Student Affairs and Higher Education. 

Annual Conference

Each year, SACSA chooses a city in a Southeastern state to host its annual conference in conjunction with NASPA Region III.

2019 Annual Conference

This year, SACSA has partnered with NASPA Region III to host its annual conference in Raleigh, North Carolina on November 2-4. We encourage you to learn more about the 2019 Annual Conference and let's Rise Higher by Connecting Theory, Practice, and Purpose.

Career Center

Using the Career Center, SACSA members are able to post job openings, find potential candidates, search openings, and subscribe to new posting notifications. 


Professional Institutes

SACSA partners with NASPA Region III to offer two different professional institutes.

Mid-Managers Institute

The Mid-Manager's Institute (MMI) is a very focused and unique professional development experience presented in partnership with SACSA and NASPA Region III. It offers an opportunity for mid-level professionals to enhance and develop the skills, relationships, and dispositions that distinguish them in the profession and enables them to make more meaningful contributions to the people and programs they serve.

New Professionals Institute

The New Professionals Institute (NPI) is the preeminent professional development opportunity for new student affairs professionals in the south (we consider ‘new professionals’ anyone with five years or fewer of full-time experience in Student Affairs). Co-sponsored by NASPA Region III and SACSA, NPI is an intensive, interactive week of learning, sharing, networking and professional and personal development.


SACSA offers a webinar series the first Tuesday of each month AT 1:00 PM EST for its members! These webinars are free to attend and last for 60 minutes. SACSA encourages all of its members to consider submitting a proposal to present a webinar. Webinars can be presented by one or more graduate students or student affairs professionals.
