Equity Leadership Academies

National Institute/Small Conference Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice VP for Student Affairs

NASPA and the University of Southern California Race and Equity Center will host the inaugural VPSA Equity Leadership Academies for vice presidents of student affairs.

The Equity Leadership Academies will bring together selected cohorts of vice presidents and senior leaders to learn from one another and from higher education equity scholars and practitioners. Sessions will address strategic planning and action, understanding campus unrest and student protest, managing and resolving racial tensions in the workplace, data, accountability, and incentives for advancing equity equity goals, and retaining and advancing diverse teams. Participants will also work in small groups on a specific institutional challenge or opportunity.

Two academies will take place, dates to be determined. Participants will be responsible for covering their own travel and lodging; program tuition and on-site breakfasts and lunches will be covered by NASPA. 

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