NASPA Alice Manicur Symposium

Workshop Supporting the Profession Center for Women

The Alice Manicur Symposium is an engaging and supportive environment for you to learn and reflect on your personal goals and aspirations. The Symposium is specifically designed for student affairs professionals who identify as women or outside the gender binary and who are at the middle management level and considering a move to become vice presidents of student affairs.

The Symposium is an application-based professional development experience offered every two years and allows time for in-depth discussions and small, faculty-led mentor group sessions. Additionally, attendees meet one-on-one with experienced VPSA faculty members, as well as participate in content sessions on topics such as: strategic thinking, leading change, planning for career advancement, and work/life integration.

The Manicur Symposium is an application-based program, and registration is limited to those who applied for and were selected to attend. Applications for the 2022 Alice Manicur Symposium will open in spring 2021.
