Assistant and associate vice presidents for student affairs and other senior-level "number twos" who report to the vice president for student affairs (or the equivalent) have among the most complex and challenging roles in the modern student affairs division. The NASPA AVP Symposium will gather AVPs from a wide variety of institutional types for two intense days of learning and networking designed to support AVPs' success in these difficult, yet critically important, roles. Symposium attendees can expect sessions and high-level content developed and delivered for an AVP audience that call on AVP participants to contribute to the peer learning community by deeply engaging with the Symposium content and fellow participants.
Advancing Excellence in the AVP Role is the theme of this inaugural NASPA AVP Symposium, and we expect that programs and sessions will connect with the following topics and content areas:
Strategies for addressing the challenges and complexities inherent in the AVP role
Leading from “the middle”
Freedom of expression and civility on campus
Leveraging personal identities for effective leadership
Diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice
Human resources (including supervision and staff accountability)
Community health and wellness
Law, public policy, and compliance issues
Understanding, navigating, and influencing institutional culture
Organizational change/resource management
