EASFAA Vision and Mission

The Eastern Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators - EASFAA - exists to provide its membership with professional development opportunities. These opportunities help prepare EASFAA members to ethically and competently serve the students, parents, and institutions they represent. EASFAA fills the unique role of providing professional services to both its individual members and state associations. EASFAA also acts as an advocate for regional policy positions with the United States Congress and the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA).

Vision Statement: EASFAA aspires to be a leader in the development of empowered financial aid professionals.

Mission Statement:  EASFAA promotes and supports the advancement of its members in higher education utilizing training, advocacy, education, and leadership development opportunities.

Diversity Statement:  In support of the EASFAA mission, EASFAA seeks, accepts, and practices the inclusion of all individuals in the association regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender, gender identify, religion, sexual orientation, disability, appearance, professional level, institutional type, country of national origin or other uniquely defined characteristics.


EASFAA is responsible for facilitating communication between the States and the District that comprise our Association. Through this effort, we hope to bring about better understanding and cooperation among our diverse membership. Success, in this regard, will result in an increased sharing of expertise and less valuable time being expended on the development of duplicate programs. Through this effort, we can come to better appreciate the talents of our Regional colleagues and expedite our own professional group.
