In 1954, the National Association of Student Affairs Professionals (NASAP), a professional organization dedicated to promoting excellence in the area of Student Affairs, was founded on the campus of Howard University in the nation’s capital. Since then NASAP has been “the country’s only Student Affairs organization dedicated primarily to professionals who serve at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other diverse settings in higher education,” said Irvin Clark, NASAP president.

“The organization,” according to the info about NASAP 2015 posted on the Guidebook app, “serves as a beacon for student affairs personnel addressing the issues and needs of today’s college students. It is on the leading edge regarding issues, solutions and professional development opportunities for student affairs professionals who serve minority populations in diverse settings around the country.”
