Welcome to the WCPA Website!

The Wisconsin College Personnel Association (WCPA) is a State Division of the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) and is dedicated to the professional development of its members.

WCPA aims to offer low cost, high quality professional development opportunities to our members.

Online Membership Form

WCPA has adopted the philosophy that all professionals and graduate students in Wisconsin working in student affairs and higher education can now automatically become members of WCPA once they completed the online membership form.

Membership in WCPA is open to anyone working in higher education or in transition and is free of charge.

WCPA Campus Contacts List

Sponsored by the Commission for Graduate Students & New Professionals (GSNP).

Looking for a low-commitment way to share your unique campus experience with new professionals or current graduate students? Consider becoming a Campus Contact!

Individual Campus Contacts will become part of a list that WCPA members can access in order to learn more about a specific Wisconsin campus or about a specific office/unit within.

Interested? Submit your information here.

WCPA Commissions

The WCPA commissions shall be open to all members of WCPA and will provide an opportunity to discuss broad issues facing all areas of student affairs.

Commission members are expected to participate in commission teleconference and follow through on research projects, program recruitment or development, and award submission recruitment or development. Commission members will also promote WCPA, encourage colleagues to join WCPA and become involved in the organization in some way.

Commissions will meet via teleconference as necessary and meet at the annual conference to receive updates on WCPA business and to discuss contributions each commission can make to WCPA. Commissions will be relied upon heavily to recruit program presenters at the annual conference and PDI. Commissions will also be relied upon heavily to nominate individuals for WCPA awards. Each commission will be encouraged to research topics, share resources through email list serves, and recruit members to become involved in the commission’s work.
