Co-produced by NASPA (Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education) and ACUHO-I (Association for College and University Housing Officers – International), The Placement Exchange (TPE) is the definitive resource for the Student Affairs job placement process. With dynamic, online information, powerful networking opportunities, and first-class job placement events, TPE is designed to help candidates find that perfect job and help institutions find that perfect hire, all while providing year-round educational resources and support.
TPE facilitates an average of 12,000 onsite interviews each year, and, in the past two years, more than 2,800 positions have been posted on the TPE online job board. As a clear testament to the value of TPE, 98 percent of candidates and employers who participated in our TPE Onsite event last year indicated they would recommend TPE to others.
