Broadcasted over Google Plus, On-Air Hangout
Conversation: #SAlive

On September 12th, I sat down, virtually over Google Plus On-Air Hangouts, with Kevin Kruger, President of NASPA (Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education) on Student Affairs Live! 

We had a conversation about NASPA, some their upcoming programs and initiatives, and the 2013 NASPA Conference in Orlando, FL!  As always, Mike Hamilton helped me by monitoring the backchannel!

If you have any more questions for Kevin, please email him at kkruger@naspa.org

    My new institution seems to be above-average in terms of “technophobia,” but they also use it to justify putting off student affairs technology needs/wants.   How can I help convince my colleagues (and possibly more importantly, my superiors) that technology is a good investment when dollars are ever-tightening?
