2020 NASPA Institute for New AVPs

January 24 – January 25, 2020
New Orleans, Louisiana

The NASPA Institute for New AVPs is a foundational two-day learning and networking experience designed to support and develop AVPs in their unique and challenging roles on campus. The Institute is appropriate for AVPs and other senior-level "number twos" who report to the highest-ranking student affairs officer and who have been serving in their first AVP/"number two" position for not longer than two years.

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.

About

As a new assistant or associate vice president (or other "number two") who reports to the vice president for student affairs (or other highest-ranking student affairs officer) on your campus, you have a very unique and equally challenging position. The NASPA Institute for New AVPs is designed to support your successful transition into the AVP role and will help you to navigate the complex individual and institutional challenges that are inherent in the “number two” position. With the leadership of a faculty team comprised of accomplished AVPs and VPSAs, the Institute’s curriculum focuses on:

  • Competencies required for success in the AVP role
  • Leading through relationships
  • Leveraging intersecting personal identies for effective leadership
  • Leading areas and functions that are new to you
  • Effectively balancing leadership and followership

All Institute participants must report to the highest-ranking student affairs officer on campus and have substantial responsibility for divisional functions. Join us in New Orleans in January to improve your effectiveness in your challenging role and to expand your AVP peer network!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Institute participants are strongly encouraged to attend also the 2020 NASPA AVP Symposium, which will take place in the same location immediately following the Institute. A registration fee discount of 50% will be offered to institute participants who attend the Symposium. Upon completion of your institute registration, you will receive an email confirmation that contains a discount code for you to apply to your registration for the Symposium.
