Message from the President


I am pleased to serve the National Association of Student Affairs Professionals (NASAP) as President.  I am honored to continue to support NASAP’s legacy as the organization provides impactful professional development for the nation’s most talented student affairs professionals, many of whom serve amazing students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). As we have been challenged in so many ways over the last few years, it is important that student affairs professionals have amassed the skills necessary to support today’s ever-changing student demographic.

As President, I look forward to providing our memberships and prospective members with opportunities which prepare them the challenges of serving college students from a student affairs lens. Over the years, our signature convening has been our annual conference, where we look forward to sponsoring each year. However, it is my intent to learn more about your needs and desires as members of this outstanding student affairs organization. I look forward to serving you and further expanding NASAP’s impact within the higher education through innovation and creative thinking and implementation of new program and services. As our motto states, “work is love made visible” and most certainly the work of student affairs is a labor of love.


Stevie L. Lawrence II, Ph.D.
