naspa division groups james e scott academy advisory board


The James E. Scott Academy is led by a board comprised of 21 accomplished vice presidents for student affairs (or the equivalent) who lead divisions at a wide variety of institutional types throughout NASPAs seven regions.  The primary role of the Board is to provide advice and thought leadership on critical issues in student affairs and higher education and to advise the NASPA president and staff regarding these issues.  Additionally, the Board plays a key role in identifying principles of effective student affairs practice for recognizing and responding to the trends and challenges present in the field and in higher education more broadly.  Lastly, the Academy sponsors programs that provide opportunities for VPSAs to dialogue and learn with other vice presidents.
