The NASPA AVP Steering Committee has established the AVP Dialogue Series to provide additional opportunities to AVPs (and the equivalent) for professional discourse on topics that impact our institutions, our students, and the profession. Each topic-specific dialogue will be facilitated by one or more of your AVP peers who will kick off the discussion and provide enough structure for attendees to get the most out of this opportunity to engage virtually in a community of similarly professionally situated colleagues. This is not intended to be a “sit and listen while doing other things” experience. We expect participating AVPs to be fully engaged in the dialogue…the conversation will go where you take it!
If you’re a sitting AVP (or the equivalent), please join your “AVPeeps” for one or more of these upcoming Dialogues:
