VPSA and AVP Colleague Conversation: Revitalizing Staff

Virtual Engagement Events Supporting the Profession AVP or "Number Two" Senior Level VP for Student Affairs

Difficult times call for deep conversation. We invite you to participate in the ongoing series of VPSA- and AVP-exclusive Colleague Conversations, which are designed to provide opportunities for senior student affairs officers to discuss, analyze, critique, and strategize with peers across the profession. Free of charge and exclusively for Vice Presidents and AVPs who are current NASPA members, these conversations will allow for discrete sharing of concerns and ideas that will allow us to meet the difficult moment in which we find ourselves. These sessions are not recorded in order to promote the freest sharing of ideas and challenges by participants.

The past year has been a difficult one to say the least. Student affairs staff have been asked to stretch their skills, talents, and day-to-day operations in many ways. Many have managed personal challenges at home while keeping the wheels turning and balls in the air on campus, some while putting themselves and their staff at risk from a health perspective. Divisions have lost staff due to Covid, reductions, or personal decisions. Burnout and fatigue are real for many within our organizations and those who lead need to take time to understand, acknowledge, and model the way for what the next few months and next year will look like.

During this Colleague Conversation, we will turn our attention to the humans that have helped navigate this crisis in courageous ways. Many leaders have taken vital steps to reflect with their staff, rejuvenate them along the way, and show true appreciation and empathy throughout the last year. This session will explore the following ideas: How can leaders acknowledge and appreciate the personal toll some have taken to ensure life on campus continues and students are cared for in their time of need? What have some VPs and AVPs done on their campuses to sustain staff momentum and energy during this time? In what ways will staff need support for the future as we transition out of crisis response and into the next phase of life on campuses?
