COLLEGE STUDENT PERSONNEL ASSOCIATION (CSPA)
The College Student Personnel Association (CSPA) is currently the first registered graduate student organization on the Arkansas Tech University (ATU) campus. It is designed to help current Student Affairs Administration (SAA) students, alumni, and student affairs administrators learn ways to grow and develop as effective higher education leaders.
The mission of the CSPA at ATU is to encourage growth, change, and engagement in current and future student affairs professionals. This is accomplished by providing opportunities for professional growth through networking and professional development. Through discussions CSPA aims to assist members in preparing for and understanding the changing atmosphere of the profession of student affairs and higher education, and thus the essential skill of adaptability. Lastly, CSPA emphasizes engagement. Ultimately CSPA aims to help members encompass individual growth, change, and engagement into practical application for consistent improvement of the student affairs profession.
