About the CTLPA Conference

The CTLPA Executive warmly welcomes our members and other stakeholders to the annual regional conference entitled: Power up! Moving to Mastery in Student Service Delivery.  This five (5) day virtual event seeks to engage student services and higher education professionals in stimulating discussions that reinforce the need for the scholarly treatment of student services within Higher Education institutions.

Through exchanges and the collective contributions of our speakers, presenters and attendees, this conference seeks to situate issues in student services within the Caribbean context. In this virtual event space, we will explore research on strategies for improving student services in the Caribbean. We will also connect and support student services professionals  in the region by giving visibility and voice to best practices, critical thinking and the challenges that affect Higher Education.

Attendees are encouraged to immerse themselves in the discussions as the event progresses and enjoy the CTLPA 2021 Conference experience that awaits.
