Ignite! Engage! Inspire!

NPI - New Professionals Institute is the preeminent professional development opportunity for new student affairs professionals in the south. Anyone with five years or fewer of full-time experience in Student Affairs is eligible to apply.

The New Professionals Institute will take place June 18-23 at beautiful Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas!  We will accept a maximum of 70 participants to guarantee the best balance of a varied and diverse group with the benefits of the small group experience. Final preparations are currently taking place.

The Institute will be led by five outstanding faculty and will welcome guest presenters from SACSA, NASPA Region III, and institutions in the San Antonio area.

Great appreciation to Dave Tuttle, Vice President for Student Affairs at Trinity, for all he and his team are doing to make this an excellent experience.

Co-sponsored by NASPA Region III and SACSA, NPI is an intensive, interactive week of learning, sharing, networking and professional and personal development. This unique opportunity allows new professionals to draw on their first years of experience to improve their effectiveness and to learn from others. It is a time of professional and personal renewal and assists new professionals in the development of their careers.

NPI requires a commitment by the new professional to work intensively over five days with other new professionals and a team of more-seasoned faculty members. To assure that new professionals' participation in the Institute is fully endorsed by the current senior student affairs officer at his/her institution, registrants must have a letter of support submitted by the senior student affairs officer at the institution. There is a limit of two participants per institution.

Many institutions have used this Institute not only as a training ground for rising stars in the profession, but as a form of recognition for outstanding new professionals on their campus. Participants come from all areas of student affairs: student activities, orientation, career services, residential life, recreation, student conduct, accessibility services admissions, fraternity and sorority life, counseling, international services, and more!
