Academic and Student Affairs Alliance Conference


The Academic and Student Affairs Alliance (ASA) is comprised of Academic & Student Affairs, the Graduate School, the Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity, Student Life, and Undergraduate Academic Affairs.

The ASA Conference is an opportunity for staff on campus to engage in learning, professional development, and networking. Previously, this was a half-day conference sponsored by the Division of Student Life. New this year, Student Life is excited to partner with these additional units on campus to expand the event!

The conference is an opportunity for staff of all backgrounds and levels to come together to participate in engaging sessions. We hope every participant walks away with a better understanding of our students, how they can contribute to the student experience, and resources to achieve professional goals.

Please join us for the 2019 ASA Alliance Conference at the University of Washington.

Our theme, Connecting the Dots: Leveraging our Network for Student Success, reflects the planning committee’s goal for staff across the campus to come together and learn how we can best support our students.

  • Cicero Delfin – Assistant Director, Samuel E. Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center (OMAD)
