NNU has the opportunity to host the annual Association of Christians in Student Development (ACSD) conference June 3-6, 2013. It is a huge honor to be hosting one the of the premier conferences for student development professionals, and we are very excited at the opportunity to have individuals from all over the country visit our campus.
The theme for the conference is Develop Different. We are all in the development business. Our conference theme will challenge higher education professionals from around the nation to think in new ways and to come up with new ideas. This will be crucial as we face new problems and new challenges. To develop different is a call to improvement and an openness to change.
