CSPA Fall Conference

Presented by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) and hosted by Columbia University, the annual Fall Conference is a one-day regional event, offering sequences focused on writing, editing, editorial leadership, design, photography, and digital media.

Funding is available for eligible students. Please visit our event site to learn more about the Greenman Leadership Grant.

On November 6, 2023, delegates from around the country gathered on the Columbia campus to connect with each other and expand your knowledge. Attendees chose from more than 60 in-person sessions that offer important training, useful strategies, and meaningful networking opportunities for students and advisers. Read more about the conference here.

For those who were unable to join us in person this year, CSPA offered a virtual registration option. Twenty-two conference sessions were simultaneously live-streamed from classrooms across the University campus. Recordings of these sessions were also be available to registered attendees after the event.

CSPA's next event, the 100th Annual Spring Convention, will take place March 13-15, 2024. We hope to see you there.
