2019 NASPA AVP Institute - Excellence in the “Number Two” Role

January 13 – January 15, 2019
West Palm Beach, Florida

The NASPA AVP Institute – Excellence in the “Number Two” Role – is an intensive three-day program designed to support and develop AVPs in their unique roles on campus.  The Institute is appropriate for both new and seasoned AVPs, first-timers and returners alike.

About the Institute Model

This exclusive professional development program is an institute.  Unlike conferences where participants choose to participate (or not) in concurrent sessions, during this institute, all attendees will participate in the same cohort experience and are expected to engage fully in all aspects of the program including meals.  It is a very intensive experience, and the program will run into the evening each day.


If you report to the vice president for student affairs (or other most senior student affairs officer) on your campus, you’re a “number two” and undoubtedly have a unique and challenging position.  The NASPA AVP Institute – Excellence in the “Number Two” Role is designed to support AVP success and will help you to navigate the complex individual and institutional challenges that are inherent in the “number two” position.

Save the date! The 2019 NASPA AVP Institute – Excellence in the “Number Two” Role will take place January 13-15, 2019 in beautiful West Palm Beach, Florida. More information about the Institute will be available soon.
