About

This year’s Regional Conference titled “Cultivating a New Crop” in Lincoln, Nebraska will feature a New Professionals Institute (NPI) taking place Sunday November 5th- Tuesday November 7th. This year’s faculty bring together multiple decades of experience and a wide array of backgrounds to share and encourage the next generation of student affairs professionals. As new professionals, learning to maneuver a work environment, whether transition from a graduate program or different field, can often be intimidating and overwhelming. NPI faculty will help to address some of the following questions:

  • How can I still be an advocate and voice for a cause when my work environment is not always supportive? · How do I manage and take care of self when there is so little time to do so?
  • What are the appropriate avenues to support student causes if I am the professional? 
  • Where can I make the most impact in speaking up for my students?
