2023 NASPA AVP Symposium

In-Person Conferences Health, Safety, and Well-being Career and Workforce Development Supporting the Profession Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice AVP or "Number Two" Senior Level VP for Student Affairs

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 by 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 2024 symposium is “Inspired Leadership: Preparing Now for the Future of the AVP Role.” We expect that programs and sessions will connect with the following topics and content areas:

  • Ever-changing nature of the AVP role

  • Inspiring tomorrow’s leaders while sharing predictions for the future of higher education

  • Forward- thinking effective practices in the areas of technology, work-flows, staffing, and other aspects of the AVP role

  • Leadership that effectively attracts, develops, and retains a talented workforce

  • Investigating and crafting evolving roles for staff at multiple levels, including professionals and paraprofessionals

  • Innovative staffing models in the context of challenging hiring environments

  • Nimbleness and adaptability in the AVP role while confronting seemingly insurmountable obstacles

  • Rapidly evolving and sometimes complicating legal landscape

  • Sharing testimonials, inspiration, and professional journeys to inspire resilience and excellence in the AVP role

  • Advancing equity at our institutions

  • Leading with one’s whole self

  • Influencing institutional culture to create effective learning and working environments

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

  • Advancing student success via effective intra- and/or extra-divisional collaborations

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

  • Finding your place and voice as the assistant/associate vice president

  • Inspiring while leading functional areas with which one has limited or no expertise

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

  • Maintaining connections with students in a manner that leverages their energy to advance AVP effectiveness and excellence
