Share Your Story

Celebrate with Us

Six deans of men corresponded in the winter of 1918 with an idea to start an association and by January 1919, the roots of our organization were planted. The 100th Anniversary Planning Committee is excited to reflect back on our past, to recognize and honor those who came before, and look forward to the future of the student affairs profession. We invite your contributions of stories of inspiration and memories of leaders, mentors, and experiences that you rely on in your career today.
