Equity Leadership Academies

Division/Group Events Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice VP for Student Affairs

NASPA and the University of Southern California Race and Equity Center are proud to host the 2023-2024 VPSA Equity Leadership Academy for vice presidents of student affairs.

The Equity Leadership Academy brings together a cohort of vice presidents and executive-level student affairs leaders to learn from one another and from higher education equity scholars and practitioners. The academy will take place in a blended in-person and virtual format. Participants will be responsible for covering their own travel, lodging, and meals for the in-person components, with program tuition covered by NASPA. 

Sessions will address the salience of race, racial equity, and racism in higher education; ideological discourses and frameworks; strategic planning, action, and communication; managing and resolving racial tensions in the workplace; data, accountability, and incentives for advancing equity goals; and retaining and advancing diverse teams. Participants will also work in small groups on a specific institutional challenge or opportunity.

For more information, please contact Monica Nixon, NASPA Vice President for Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, at [email protected] or 202.719.1195.
