About

The 2022 Institute will be the twelfth in its twenty-four-year history and will be held on Emerson College's urban campus in Boston. The Institute brings together vice presidents for student affairs and other senior-level leaders at small colleges and universities with enrollments of fewer than 5000 students for three days of learning and networking. An intentional component of this signature NASPA program is living and learning together on the host campus.

Topics featured during the 2022 Institute include:

  • Innovative strategies to address student mental health and wellness challenges
  • Leading with a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens
  • Presidential perspectives about challenges and opportunities for SCUs in today's turbulent contexts
  • The future of work in student affairs
  • What campus leaders need to understand about Title IX
  • Hot topics for small colleges and universities

We hope you'll choose to join us in June!

About M. Ben Hogan
In March 2016, the NASPA Small Colleges and Universities Division proposed that the NASPA Small Colleges and Universities Institute be renamed in honor of Michael “Ben” Hogan. The NASPA Board of Directors enthusiastically supported the proposal, and the Institute was renamed the NASPA M. Ben Hogan Small Colleges and Universities Institute. The 2018 institute, hosted by the University of Puget Sound, was the first that bore Ben's name.

Ben Hogan had a long and distinguished career in student affairs. Having spent time at Lycoming College in Pennsylvania and Springfield College in Massachusetts, among other places, Ben was a long-time student affairs administrator at small colleges. As the chairperson of the NASPA Small Colleges and Universities Network (predecessor to the current division), he worked tirelessly to advance the mission and purpose of the small college movement. He was instrumental in laying the groundwork for increased recognition, which resulted in small colleges and universities gaining a seat on the NASPA Board of Directors. Through this work, Ben championed the concept of a professional development experience specifically for small college professionals, and he served as the chairperson of the first NASPA Small Colleges and Universities Institute in 1998.

Venue

Emerson College

Emerson College

Boston, MA

All institute activities will take place at Emerson College in historic Boston, Massachusetts. An intentional component of this signature NASPA program is that participants live and learn together on the host campus. Attendees will be housed in an on-campus, apartment-style suite with a private bedroom and a shared bathroom. Given this unique aspect of the program, we are not able to accommodate family members or other traveling companions in the institute-provided housing.

 

Institute Schedule

The Institute "officially" kicks off with an opening reception and dinner on Saturday, June 25, 2022. Other sessions and activities on Saturday are optional, some of which carry an additional registration fee. The Institute schedule is subject to change.

About the Institute Model

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. It is a very intensive experience, and the program will run into the evening each day.

Post-Pandemic Higher Education – Where are the challenges and the opportunities?

As higher education emerges from the pandemic, it is clear that many of the short-term impacts experienced during the pandemic are here to stay. These new factors and longer-term trends that were in place before the pandemic are resulting in a series of unprecedented challenges for higher education. But within these challenges are significant opportunities as well. Dr Kruger will explore both potential barriers and new possibilities for the future of student affairs in this fast-paced interactive program.

The Continued Changing Landscape of Title IX Policies and Practices: What You Need to Know

Details

Kathryn Nash, Partner, Lathrop GPM

 

The Title IX landscape continues to change. Since the Dear Colleague Letter in 2011 and subsequent guidance from the Office for Civil Rights and the Department of Education, colleges and universities have taken steps to ensure compliance. The Trump administration issued new regulations and we are expecting more changes from the Biden Administration. This session will provide practical insight on how to comply with the various changes in the past few years and further review emerging practices in Title IX.  

In this session, we will discuss the current adaptation and strive for the following outcomes:

  • Attendees will be able to describe the finalized adaptation of Title IX protocols

  • Attendees will be able to compare and contrast the finalized adaptation of Title IX protocols with practices at their home institution

  • Attendees will be able to discuss emerging practices in the Title IX landscape

From the Top: Small College President Perspectives

Details

Daniel G. Lugo, President, Queens University of Charlotte

Vincent Rougeau, College of the Holy Cross

Mary Beth Cooper, Springfield College

Richard Lapidus, Fitchburg State

 

The challenges facing higher education institutions and their leaders have never been greater than they are today. Intense public scrutiny and questions about the value of college, demands for racial equity and inclusion, rapidly changing student demographics and attendant needs, diminishing resources, and enrollment fluctuations – to name a few – are among the many challenges facing campus leaders at most institutions and in amplified ways at small colleges and universities. The global COVID-19 pandemic has certainly exacerbated these challenges and created new ones such as the seismic crisis in mental health and what some have dubbed the “pandemic shuffle” of staff leaving higher education in favor of positions with greater flexibility and opportunities for remote work.

During this session, NASPA President Kevin Kruger will facilitate a conversation with four small college presidents about these challenges and others and their strategies for moving their institutions forward during such perilous times. The discussion will also invite presidential perspectives about prolonged residual effects of COVID-19, college closures and mergers and how student affairs divisions impact and support their presidential priorities for their institutions.

Why Leadership on Diversity and Inclusion Requires Emotional Intelligence

Details

Anne Phibbs, Founder and President, Strategic Diversity Initiatives  

 

For many who care about advancing equity and social justice in all areas of their lives, the past few years have brought tremendous challenges. While U.S. society grows increasingly diverse and complex, our social and political discourse grows more polarized, less nuanced, and frighteningly hostile. From navigating the science - and politics - of the Covid pandemic to answering the resounding calls (once again) for racial justice, and from balancing free speech with equity in our online spaces to addressing the needs of our nonbinary community members, we are living through a profound social and cultural moment. Continuing to build inclusive and equitable institutions, in the face of so many challenges, will require not just allies and advocates, but leaders and risk-takers. And these leaders must come to the work prepared, not just intellectually but emotionally as well. In this practically focused presentation, we will explore how the framework of “emotional intelligence” has much to offer those of us doing the work of diversity, inclusion, and social justice.

Student Mental Health: A Call for a Community Approach

Details

Sarah Lipson, Assistant Professor, Department of Health Law Policy and Management

Domanic Thomas, Vice Chancellor of Enrollment and Student Affairs, Washington State University-Vancouver 

 

COVID, economic uncertainty, and calls for racial justice have added to the mounting mental health concerns of our students.  While counseling centers play an integral role in addressing the resulting depression, anxiety, and loneliness, we cannot staff our way out of this problem.  Dr. Sarah Lipson, Associate Director of the Healthy Minds Network and Boston University Faculty will lead this session.  The session is intended to provide a mental health landscape, practices and procedural considerations, and how student affairs professionals can work “upstream” with campus partners to assist.  Come prepared to share your ideas, strategies, questions, and successes around these efforts.

What is the Future of Work in Student Affairs? Integrating our Humanity with our Work

Details

Christopher Medley, Director of Housing and Residential Services, Fitchburg State University

Paul Brown, Director of Campus Experience, Roompact

Smita Ruzicka, Vice President, Middlebury College

Ellen Heffernan, President, Spelman and Johnson

 

The world of work is changing, and higher education is not immune. Factors like energy around racial justice, COVID impacts, demographic shifts, mental health focus for both employees and students, generational workplace dissonance, and the great resignation are promoting seismic shifts. This session offers a panel with insight from several lenses - a member of the NASPA Task Force for the Future of Student Affairs, a director of a functional area that is a nexus of all these factors, and a student-focused expert in a higher ed-adjacent role. Several themes will be explored by both the panelists and the participants.
