The Innovations Committee works to promote creativity, technological advancements, and best practices in the administration of financial aid. Our committee's primary goal is to enhance the financial aid landscape by embracing innovative solutions and fostering collaboration within the WASFAA community.

Some of this year’s goals include:

  • The Blog: We share insights, updates, and articles related to the latest trends, best practices, and technological advancements in the financial aid realm. Expect regular blog posts covering topics ranging from recent experiences at conferences like the MASFAA Summer Institute to practical advice on improving financial aid administration through technology.
  • Social Media: We plan to grow our social media presence to engage with the membership more frequently. Follow WASFAA on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date with the latest developments!
  • Tech Software Research: You don’t need to be a “techie” to serve on the Innovations Committee! You just need a healthy curiosity about new technologies, or a willingness to explore different ways of using old ones. We evaluate and recommend software tools that can aid financial aid administrators in their day-to-day operations and support students effectively.
  • Conference Sessions: We collaborate with the Conference Committee to curate engaging sessions focused on innovations, creativity, efficiencies, and best practices in the financial aid domain. These sessions aim to inspire attendees and equip them with practical strategies to enhance their roles as financial aid administrators.

We also like to think of ourselves as a resource to WASFAA for technology advice and ideas.  We may not be able to solve every problem you have at the computer, but many of our members have their fingers on the pulse of new software, web products, and gadgets – if you’re looking for a new way to engage your students, or have a problem you think could be made easier through technology, get in touch.  We just may be able to help guide you to a solution.
