About Us

The National Association of Branch Campus Administrators (NABCA) is a professional organization committed to supporting the mission and goals of higher education professionals who work at a location that is separate from the parent campus.  Membership ranges from campus centers with a population of 50 students to larger campus communities with 15,000 students, but the challenges are the same: from implementing academic programs, campus safety, maintenance, student success initiatives and commencement celebrations.  We equip public & private, national & international, 2-year & 4-year, colleges & universities, and other higher education partners with the tools and resources they need to support the parent campus, students, and communities they serve.

 

Governed by an Executive Committee elected from among and by the Membership, NABCA is committed to providing a setting for the improvement of leadership, teaching, and research.  Members of the Executive Committee must be NABCA members in good standing for at least two years before election or appointment. The Committee is responsible for conducting all business, strategic planning implementation, and operations between annual business meetings.

 

Established in 1997 as the Western Association of Branch Campus Administrators, the name was changed in 2004 to represent the growing national focus. NABCA appreciates the participation of Members and others who are interested in branch, regional, or satellite campus issues.
