2017-2018 NASPA Lead Initiative Application
The Lead Initiative began in 2012-2013 with three primary goals. First, the initiative was seen as a way to advance the institutionalization of Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement (CLDE) work in student affairs divisions and postsecondary institutions more broadly. Second, we wanted to facilitate peer-to-peer sharing and collaboration across the participating colleges and universities. And finally, we sought to increase the awareness of student affairs’ overt contributions to students’ citizenship development, civic learning, and community engagement. After the first five years of our efforts, we can safely say we have made significant progress towards these goals.
As we transition into year five of this initiative, we are again seeking connection and engagement with NASPA members and NASPA institutions committed to CLDE work on their campus. Whether you are just beginning efforts to stimulate campus work in this space, or are a seasoned nationally recognized campus leader in CLDE work, NASPA hopes you will consider joining the Lead Initiative.
