2024 NASPA M. Ben Hogan Small Colleges and Universities Institute

In-Person Conferences Small Colleges and Universities Division AVP or "Number Two" Senior Level VP for Student Affairs

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 four-day residential program during which vice presidents for student affairs (and the equivalent) and other senior-level administrators engage in discussion and reflection about critical issues in student affairs and examine effective and innovative programs. 

 

Participation in this institute is limited to the highest-ranking student affairs officer on campus and other senior-level administrators who (1) report to the highest-ranking 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. 

The registration fee for this unique program includes housing and most meals. The Registration section will be coming soon.

Small Colleges and Universities Division

About

The 2024 Institute will be the thirteenth in its twenty-six-year history and will be held on Lewis & Clark campus in Portland, Oregon. The Institute brings together vice presidents for student affairs and other senior-level leaders at small colleges and universities with enrollments of fewer than 5000 students for three days of learning and networking

An intentional component of this signature NASPA program is living and learning together on the host campus.

In 2024, the program will begin with an opening reception and dinner on Sunday, June 23 and will end at noon on Wednesday, June 26. Additionally, several optional pre-institute outings will be offered on Sunday, June 23 for early-arriving participants.

 

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.

Venue

Lewis & Clark

Lewis & Clark College

All institute activities will take place at Lewis & Clark in beautiful Portland, Oregon. An intentional component of this signature NASPA program is that participants live and learn together on the host campus. Attendees will be housed in an on-campus, apartment-style suite with a private bedroom and a shared bathroom. Given this unique aspect of the program, we are not able to accommodate family members or other traveling companions in the institute-provided housing.

 

 

Institute Schedule

The Institute "officially" kicks off with an Institute Welcome Session on Sunday, June 23, 2024. Other sessions and activities on Sunday are optional, some of which carry an additional registration fee. The Institute schedule is subject to change.

Shuttle Schedule

Airport shuttles will be available on the hour based on the following schedule (e.g., Saturday starting at 11am, 12pm, 1pm, etc.). You will need to reserve your shuttle time in advance in order to guarantee your spot on the shuttle. A reservation form will be sent out to all participants closer to the 2024 institute dates. 

If you are arriving outside of the determined shuttle schedule, a Lyft discount code for $10 off your ride to campus will be provided to you (please request this accordingly on the same reservation form). 

  • Saturday (from airport, on the hour): 11am-8pm
  • Sunday (from airport, on the hour): 8am-5pm
  • Wednesday (to airport, on the hour): 8am-2pm

Lyft discount offered outside of hours on the three days: $10 discount OFF ride

Please note that this schedule may change. Final details will be shared with participants closer to the event.

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.
