NASPA AVP Symposium

In-Person Conferences Supporting the Profession AVP or "Number Two"

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" who report to the vice president for student affairs (or the equivalent) 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 and 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 of the 2020 symposium is "The AVP in 2022: Refreshed. Renewed. Refocused." We expect that programs and sessions will connect with the following topics and content areas:

  • Diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice
  • Community health and well-being
  • Post-pandemic innovations to advance student engagement
  • Flourishing in the AVP role
  • Freedom of expression and civility on campus
  • Leveraging personal identities for effective leadership
  • Leading diverse intergenerational teams
  • Human resources (including supervision and staff accountability)
  • Law, public policy, and compliance issues
  • Understanding, navigating, and influencing institutional culture
  • Organizational change and resource management
  • Innovating in a context of diminishing resources
  • Strategies for addressing the challenges and complexities inherent in the AVP role

Schedule

The symposium will begin at 3:15 p.m. on Saturday, January 22, 2022 and will conclude at 12:30 p.m. on Monday, January 24, 2022. Additionally, several pre- and post-symposium workshops will be offered for an additional fee. Please check back soon for more details about the full symposium schedule.

Registration

Renewed. Refocused.” While all proposals that connect with this broad theme will be considered, the committee is particularly interested to review submissions related to the following topics and content areas:

  • Diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice
  • Community health and well-being
  • Post-pandemic innovations to advance student engagement
  • Flourishing in the AVP role
  • Freedom of expression and civility on campus

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.
