NACA Competencies for Campus Activities Professionals

The National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) is a nationally recognized leader in the field of campus activities. In 2007, to best serve members and facilitate quality professional development for advisors, NACA created a competency guide for campus activities professionals titled Steps to Individual Excellence as a Campus Activities Professional. The guide listed 46 competencies grouped into three broad categories: General Knowledge and Skills, Interactive Competencies, and Self Mastery. These competencies pre-dated the NASPA/ACPA competencies, which serve as a guide for student affairs professionals across functional areas. In 2017, the Association revised the original document, given that the field of campus activities has evolved over the course of the last decade and the original guide has been under-utilized.
