Dr. Scott Peska, Dean for Students at Waubonsee Community College, will represent the college and other regional community colleges on the NASPA (Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education) Region IV-East Advisory Board.

Dr. Peska was appointed to a two-year term, expiring in March 2017, as the Community College Division Representative on the advisory board.

NASPA exists to advance and improve the health and sustainability of student affairs organizations at institutions of higher education in the U.S., Canada, 23 other countries and eight U.S. territories.

NASPA’s Region IV-E includes schools within the Great Lakes region, including the states of Illinois, Iowa, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana and Minnesota and the Canadian province of Ontario.

“I see this as an opportunity to continue to raise awareness within higher education about issues facing students attending two-year colleges,” Dr. Peska said.  “It is important for community college student affair professionals to have a voice in shaping national, regional, state, and local legislation that may impact the educational process for our students.”
