About

The NASPA Virtual Institute for New Vice Presidents for Student Affairs is a foundational 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 VPSA position. Participants must be the highest-ranking student affairs officer on their campus. (VPSAs in interim roles are eligibile to attend.)

The 2020 virtual experience will focus on these executive-level attributes and competencies:

  • Cultivating executive mindsets, traits, and habits for success
  • Leading through relationships and navigating institutional politics
  • Leveraging personal identities for effective leadership
  • Leading through crises
  • Managing up, down, and across

Join us in October for this faculty-led, cohort experience to hone your executive-level competencies and to develop your go-to peer network.

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. From Monday, October 5 to Wednesday, October 12, the institute faculty will meet with the cohort four times:

 

Monday, October 5

1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. ET

Thursday, October 8

3:00 p.m. – 6:15 p.m. ET

Monday, October 12

2:00 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. ET

Wednesday, October 14

3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. ET

 

Prior to and between these real-time virtual gatherings, institute participants will access other institute content (e.g., videos, readings, assignments) at their convenience via NASPA’s virtual event platform.

 

Recorded Sessions

Welcome by Institute Director and Faculty

Available to participants: September 15th, 2020

Session II: Audacious Leadership: Your Institution Needs It from You More Than Ever Before

Available to participants: September 15th, 2020

Abstract:

What traits, mindsets, and approaches can new vice presidents for student affairs cultivate to achieve success? And first: How do we define success as a VPSA? Participants will reflect individually (and later in the institute with colleagues) on intrinsic motivations, values, and leadership opportunities unique to the VPSA role. This session is intended to get you “out of the weeds” and thinking as a higher level leader. Prepare yourself for mindset shifts, edgy leadership, and, most of all, hope.

Session III: Leading Through Relationships

Available to participants: October 6th, 2020

Abstract:

As you navigate your new role on campus, you will quickly learn which relationships are essential to develop and how to lead through relationships. Why are relationships critical for new VPSAs to cultivate? How do we cultivate these relationships? More importantly, how do you lead through those relationships? Participants will reflect individually and with colleagues on what relationship opportunities exist as a new VPSA and how to cultivate successful ones with key stakeholders. You will learn how to sustain long term healthy relationships with numerous stakeholders across the institution.

Session IV: Identity and the VPSA Role

Available to participants: October 6th, 2020

Abstract:

VPSAs are uniquely positioned to use their multiple identities to promote community, learning, and understanding among their own campus communities. This session will draw on the experiences of a number of sitting VPSAs to discuss how their identities have influenced their work and careers as VPSAs.

Session V: Crisis Leadership: An Institutional View

Available to participants: October 9th, 2020

Abstract:

There is no shortage of high-profile and high-stakes crises facing leaders in higher education. The wide-ranging nature, lack of predictability, and time pressures associated with critical incidents create tremendous challenges for even the most experienced and thoughtful leaders. This session provides the institutional context for understanding how to address rapidly unfolding critical incidents that occur in and around college campuses and addresses “good practice” in crisis management that enable VPSAs to respond effectively to help mitigate harm.

Session VI: It's Not Personal - Or is it?

Available to participants: October 9th, 2020

Abstract:

Being a vice president for student affairs is not for the faint of heart. It requires wisdom, courage, intellect, good judgement, and a myriad of other leadership skills. It also requires tenacity and very thick skin to navigate highly charged settings. For many of us, the line between the personal and the professional is blurry. We chose this profession for personal reasons and make personal sacrifices to do the job well. How do we balance these blurry lines? How do we develop the temperament necessary to respond effectively to personal attacks about our professional work? How do we continue to find inspiration and inspire others when the challenges come from staff, students, families, and our colleagues that confront our values and question our integrity? Participants will explore these ideas through personal narratives and narratives of colleagues, with a goal of developing strategies to maintain professionalism and sustain the soul in these challenging moments.

Putting it All Together: Returning to Campus with Vital and Effective Action Items

Details

Let’s go back to where we started. You identified what it takes to be an exemplary leader. You considered strategies to affect innovation and change. You discussed how you can work effectively with your colleagues and other institutional stakeholders. You explored executive-level strategies related to building and leading a team and leveraging identities to impact leadership. You learned how to confront challenges with professionalism and in ways that sustain the soul during difficult times. And, you have developed friendships with colleagues sharing the same roles on whom you can rely as the need arises. This closing session will ask you to consider how you will put all of this together to be the exemplary leader that you and your institution require.

Pre-Institute Offering

Pre-Institute Session for New VPSAs Who Are Relatively New to Student Affairs
Sunday, October 4, 2020
1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

One of the Institute's strengths is that it draws participants from remarkably diverse backgrounds and experiences including some who are relatively new to the field of student affairs such as VPSAs who come from the ranks of faculty or academic administration. Please join the Institute faculty and other new-to-student-affairs VPSAs for some informal discussion about the opportunities and challenges connected with assuming the VPSA role without a deep student affairs background and anything else that’s on your mind! Registration is required for this optional (but highly encouraged!) session.
