About

The NASPA Institute for New Vice Presidents for Student Affairs is a foundational faculty-led, learning and networking experience that prepares new VPSAs to be strategic decision-makers, highly effective managers, and transformational leaders. This professional development opportunity is designed for first-time VPSAs (and other highest-ranking senior student affairs officers on campus such as vice chancellors and deans of students depending on organizational structure) who have not assumed office or are in the first two years of their first VPSA position. Participants must be the highest-ranking student affairs officer on their campus. (VPSAs in interim roles are eligible to attend.)

Join us just outside of Washington, DC in Arlington, Virginia in October for this faculty-led, cohort experience to hone your executive-level competencies and to develop your go-to peer network.

 

 

Faculty

Accomplished vice presidents for student affairs representing a variety of institutional types will serve as the institute faculty and guide the highly interactive learning experience for the cohort.

 

 

Featured Speakers

Schedule

This exclusive professional development program is an institute. Unlike conferences where participants choose to participate (or not) in concurrent sessions, during this institute all attendees will participate in the same cohort experience and are expected to engage fully in all aspects of the program including meals and offsite activities. It is a very intensive experience, and the program will run into the evening each day.

Everyday Change is Good

Details

Forces of change are converging that are shaking the foundations of higher education institutions and threatening the very existence of student affairs as an independent function. No matter a college or university’s size, student body, affiliation, or type, every campus is facing increasingly complex challenges: budget deficits, public health concerns, and weary faculty and staff who are continuously doing much more with less. Higher education is clearly at a critical inflection point – and we will need new, innovative, bold, forward-thinking, and compassionate leadership that focuses on the systems, structures, and cultural norms that are the heart of our most challenging societal problems and that are spilling over into higher education. Senior student affairs officers are uniquely positioned to turn these threats into opportunities if they make the best use of their positions to lead innovation and change.

This session aims to offer participants the opportunity to think about change in a favorable way, acknowledging that change is inevitable (planned or unexpected) and may occur on a daily basis. Participants will consider establishing a framework for addressing change from the perspective of a newly-minted senior leader. This implies identifying a change model that will result in successful change management in the student affairs divisions of higher education institutions and a model that should help student affairs practitioners to approach change appropriately.

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Lunch with Coaching Teams

Details

Grab some lunch in the F. Scott Fitzgerald Ballroom Foyer and then join your coaching team for some more great discussion and insights. See Monday, 5:00 p.m. for locations.
