NASPA Foundation Board Chair
The NASPA Foundation Board has been volunteer driven since its inception in 1973. Board members volunteer their time to serve as ambassadors, solicit gifts, provide strategic oversight, and support foundation programs such as Pillars of the Profession and Channing Briggs Small Grants. Additionally, each NASPA Foundation Board Member commits to joining the Diamond Club and assuming travel and lodging costs for foundation board meetings.

The Foundation Board is always seeking nominations for those interested in supporting the fundraising work of the NASPA Foundation.

It’s hard to explain the pride I feel when I meet a graduate student, attending the NASPA Annual Conference with the help of a Rhatigan Fellowship – I know I’m face to face with the future of our profession. If you have the opportunity to review the research proposals we receive, you will be impressed at the academic discourse of our colleagues – you will want to fund them all! For all of these reasons and more, I am so proud to support the NASPA Foundation – with gifts of my time and my treasure. If you’ve already joined our ranks – thank you and good work! If you are not yet a donor – come join us! Together, we can change lives.
