Symposium Opens!

2023 NASPA AVP Symposium

In-Person Conferences

The NASPA AVP Symposium is a unique and innovative three-day program designed to support and develop AVPs and other "number twos" in their unique campus leadership roles. Leveraging the vast expertise and knowledge of sitting AVPs, the Symposium will provide high-level content through a variety of participant engagement-oriented session types.

This professional development offering is limited to AVPs and other "number twos" who report to the highest-ranking student affairs officer on campus and have substantial responsibility for divisional functions. Additionally, vice presidents for student affairs (and the equivalent) who are presenting during the symposium may also register at a discounted rate and attend.

About

Assistant and associate vice presidents for student affairs and other senior-level "number twos" (and the equivalent) who report to the vice president for student affairs have among the most complex and challenging roles in the modern student affairs division. The NASPA AVP Symposium will gather AVPs from a wide variety of institutional types for three intense days of learning and networking designed to support AVPs' success in these difficult, yet critically important, roles. Symposium attendees can expect sessions with high-level content developed and delivered for an AVP audience that call on AVP participants to contribute to the peer learning community by deeply engaging with the Symposium content and fellow participants. 

 

The theme for the 2023 symposium is “Intersections: Creative and Courageous AVP Leadership.” We expect that programs and sessions will connect with the following topics and content areas:

  • Leveraging personal identities for building and sustaining leadership capacity 

  • Leading intergenerational teams

  • Developing strategies for talent acquisition, employee retention, and improving staff morale

  • Advancing equity, diversity, inclusion, and social justice in student affairs and on our campuses

  • Enhancing health, well-being, and the quality of life for students, staff, and faculty

  • Increasing proficiency in legislative, public policy, and compliance procedures

  • Understanding, navigating, and influencing institutional culture and politics

  • Leading strategic planning, organizational change, and resource management efforts

  • Advancing the student experience through fundraising, sponsorships, and alternative revenue streams

  • Flourishing in the AVP role: Strategies for addressing the challenges and complexities of the position

  • Leveraging data intelligence and technology in decision-making 

  • The role of social media and influence in an executive role

  • The art and science of project management and effective workflows

Call for Proposals

The Call for Proposals is now OPEN! Proposals are due by September 12, 2022.

The 2023 NASPA AVP Symposium planning committee invites AVPs/“number twos” and vice presidents for student affairs (and the equivalent of both) to submit program proposals that resonate with the symposium theme of “Intersections: Creative and Courageous AVP Leadership.” Please visit the call for proposals submission system below for more information about the theme, desired submissions, and proposal requirements.

All presenters must be registered for the Symposium. Presenters and co-presenters who are AVPs (or the equivalent) whose proposals are accepted must register for the symposium in order to present. Presenters and co-presenters who are VPSAs (or the equivalent) whose proposals are accepted who do not wish to attend the full symposium will be granted a complimentary presenter pass in order to attend only the session they are presenting. Presenters and co-presenters who are VPSAs (or the equivalent) whose proposals are accepted who wish to attend the full symposium will receive a 25% discount of their registration fee.
