Hosted on a biennial basis by NASPA's Small Colleges and Universities Division, the NASPA M. Ben Hogan Small Colleges and Universities Institute is a three-day residential program during which vice presidents for student affairs and other senior-level administrators engage in discussion and reflection about critical issues in student affairs and the examination of effective and innovative programs.
Participation in this institute is limited to the most senior student affairs officer on campus and other senior-level administrators who (1) report to the most senior student affairs officer and (2) have substantial responsibility for divisional leadership. For example, a director of student conduct who oversees student conduct functions only would not be eligible. An associate dean of student affairs who oversees several departments/units/functional areas would be eligible to attend.
SAVE THE DATES! More information about this signature NASPA program will be posted soon.
About M. Ben Hogan
In March 2016, the NASPA Small Colleges and Universities Division proposed that the NASPA Small Colleges and Universities Institute be renamed in honor of Michael “Ben” Hogan. The NASPA Board of Directors enthusiastically supported the proposal, and the Institute was renamed the NASPA M. Ben Hogan Small Colleges and Universities Institute. The 2018 institute, hosted by the University of Puget Sound, was the first that bore Ben's name.
Ben Hogan had a long and distinguished career in student affairs. Having spent time at Lycoming College in Pennsylvania and Springfield College in Massachusetts, among other places, Ben was a long-time student affairs administrator at small colleges. As the chairperson of the NASPA Small Colleges and Universities Network (predecessor to the current division), he worked tirelessly to advance the mission and purpose of the small college movement. He was instrumental in laying the groundwork for increased recognition, which resulted in small colleges and universities gaining a seat on the NASPA Board of Directors. Through this work, Ben championed the concept of a professional development experience specifically for small college professionals, and he served as the chairperson of the first NASPA Small Colleges and Universities Institute in 1998.
