At the June regional advisory board meeting, Region IV-West approved the development of a Regional SERVE (Supporting, Expanding, and Recruiting Volunteer Excellence) Academy, mirrored from the NASPA National SERVE Academy. It is our role as an Association to help you, our members, feel a connection to the region and Association, a sense of belonging, and purpose for your membership. This Region IV-West SERVE Academy will engage 15 NASPA Region IV-West members at all levels (graduate students, new professionals, mid-level professionals, senior-level professionals, and faculty members) in a cohort academy and mentorship experience, creating a new pipeline of future Region IV-West volunteer leaders.
The Region IV-West SERVE Academy participants will meet monthly via Zoom from November 2017 through October 2018 to learn more about NASPA and Region IV-West from a guest presenter. Cohort members will also be paired with a Regional SERVE Academy Mentor (a current or past Region IV-West Board Member), who will support the SERVE Academy Participant in learning more about NASPA and Region IV-West while determining future areas of volunteer leadership interest. The Region IV-West SERVE Academy Cohort will also design and implement a class project in support of a NASPA Region IV-West strategic priority.
Applications are currently available for the inaugural cohort of the NASPA Region IV-West SERVE Academy participants here and will be open until September 30.
