NUFP & Student Affairs Leaders of Tomorrow Institute: For the Future SA Pros

November 14 – November 15, 2016
St. Louis, Missouri

The NUFP and SALT Institute teams have come together to provide this one and a half day pre-conference for undergraduate participants as a joint program. This pre-conference serves as a way to augment the experiences of undergraduate students as they are being mentored and engaged into the field of Higher Education Student Affairs. Throughout this institute a number of activities, sessions and panels will be offered to assist them in the discernment process of their future career in Student Affairs.


Utilizing StrengthsQuest, students will learn about their individual strengths, how their strengths work in a team setting, and be able to speak to their strengths in a interview process. Additionally, we will host two panels. The first will be a panel of current student affairs graduate students who can provide valuable insight concerning their experiences with graduate school and assistantship interview processes. The second panel of current graduate students will share their experiences in classes, successes and failures in assistantships, and possible pitfalls that exist in the transition from undergraduate to graduate student. Undergraduate students will leave this preconference with more knowledge of the student affairs career field and confidence in their abilities to navigate, succeed and change lives as a #FutureSAPro!  

Registration costs for members of NASPA I-V WE will be $75 plus a $26 registration to become a NASPA Undergraduate member (*NUFP undergraduate students do not need to pay $26 member registration fee.)  This cost includes Institute materials and some meals. If students want to attend the full Region IVWE Conference that is a separate registration fee and process of $160 membership fee. You can register here for the conference.

This institute is being held in conjunction with the IV-W and IV-E Joint Regional Conference
