HBCU VPSA and AVP COVID-19 Colleague Conversation
Thursday, May 28, 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET
NASPA and NASAP have partnered to create this opportunity for VPSAs and AVPs to connect as we navigate this uniquely challenging time period. This HBCU VPSA and AVP COVID-19 Colleague Conversation is designed to allow SSAOs at HBCUs to learn from one another, to crowdsource ideas about emerging challenges, and to forecast in a peer community what might need your attention and intervention in the coming days, weeks, and months. Dr. Kimberly Scott, vice president of student affairs at Tuskegee University and Dr. Denver Malcom Key, president of the NASAP Executive Board, will facilitate this discussion of SSAOs at HBCUs.
Dear NASAP Membership and Supporters,
The NASAP Executive Board has continuously monitored the ongoing updates and rapid spread of the novel coronavirus for the past few weeks. On Friday, March 27, 2020, the Board convened and with a majority vote, decided to cancel the 2020 NASAP Student Leadership Institute (SLI) scheduled to take place May 26 – June 1, 2020, at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in Princess Anne, MD. It is with deep disappointment that we share this information with you as we all look forward to seeing our various constituencies at SLI each year.
While our decision to cancel was a difficult one to make, the safety and health of our attendees (students, advisors, presenters) is and will always remain our number one priority. Therefore, as we continue to practice social distancing to stop the spread of the coronavirus, our team is working to develop opportunities to engage and train the 2020-2021 cohort of student leaders and advisors through virtual platforms and the 2021 NASAP Annual Conference scheduled to place February 2021 in New Orleans.
We are forever grateful for your continuous support, commitment and dedication to the NASAP and its Student Leadership Institute (SLI). We look forward to seeing you at SLI 2021.
Please continue to follow the guidelines of the CDC to help reduce the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Be safe and always remember, “Work Is Love Made Visible”.
