About

Do you want to be the best vice president on your cabinet?  The NASPA Institute for New VPSAs not only positions you to lead your division effectively, it supports your success as an institutional leader.  Designed by some of the field’s best VPSAs, the innovative curriculum focuses on:

  • Managing for heightened organizational performance;
  • Entrepreneurial leadership; and
  • Achieving systemic and transformational change

This professional development opportunity is designed for first-time VPSAs (and other most senior student affairs officers on campus such as vice chancellors and deans of students depending on organizational structure) who have not assumed office or are in the first two years of their VPSA position. Participants must be the most senior student affairs officer on their campus.

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 and offsite activities.  It is a very intensive experience, and the program will run into the evening each day.

Join us in Alexandria, Virginia in October and leave the Institute prepared to become the best VP on your campus.

Pre-Conference Programs & Events

On Sunday morning, October 13, Institute faculty will conduct a special optional (but highly encouraged!) session for VPSAs who are relatively new to the field of student affairs (e.g., VPSAs with faculty or academic administration backgrounds).

Pre-Institute Session for New VPSAs Who Are Relatively New to Student Affairs

Sunday, October 13th • 09.00 AM – 11.30 AM

Are you a new VPSA who ascended to the role from the ranks of the faculty or academic administration? If so, this special institute faculty-led session is for you!

View More Details

One of the Institute's strengths is that it draws participants from remarkably diverse backgrounds and experiences including some who are relatively new to the field of student affairs. Please join the Institute faculty and other new-to-student-affairs VPSAs for some informal discussion about the opportunities and challenges connected with assuming the VPSA role without a deep student affairs background and anything else that’s on your mind!

Registration

This professional development program is designed for first-time VPSAs (and other most senior student affairs officers on campus such as vice chancellors and deans of students depending on organizational structure) who have not assumed office or are in the first two years of their VPSA position. Participants must be the most senior student affairs officer on their campus.
