What is the UL Student Success Symposium?

The University Life Student Success Symposium is the division’s annual signature professional development experience. The symposium provides an opportunity to connect with colleagues and engage in topics important to our work, evolving our professional practices.  Through commitment to the UL collaborative community, we learn more about the impact of our colleagues’ contributions as we strive for student success.

The 2024 UL Symposium invites us to center ourselves in process and preparation to face the challenges and successes of the academic year ahead. The Symposium will provide you/us with interactive and engaging experiences, grounded in the UL Core Values and connected to the ACPA/NASPA Competencies.  The UL Student Success Symposium will focus on the new and continued work of student affairs professionals in the ever-changing and evolutionary nature of higher education.

The 2024 University Life Student Success Symposium is open to Mason faculty, staff, and graduate assistants. This year's symposium will take place on May 22-23, 2024. Register online at: https://gmu.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3NNZvYSFbmUXKiq.  The deadline to register is May 17, 2024.
