NASPA Escaleras Institute

Division/Group Events Supporting the Profession Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice Latinx/a/o AVP or "Number Two" Mid-Level Senior Level

With the growing population of Latinx/a/o students entering colleges and universities, NASPA is dedicated to addressing the underrepresentation of Latinx/a/o higher education professionals, particularly those at the senior level who can serve as role models and mentors. Escaleras participants will build essential competencies with a cohort of Latinx/a/o higher education professionals who are dedicated to leading in a vibrant, diverse, global, and socially just higher education environment. Participants will explore current research, pathways to administrative leadership, and challenges and opportunities in leading colleges and universities as Latinx/a/o educators.

This professional development opportunity is designed for self-identified Latinx/a/o student affairs professionals with four or more years of experience in higher education. To facilitate learning and appropriate enrichment, participants will be grouped in a professional-level track according to their current functional level and years of experience.

We are thrilled to announce that the 2024 Escaleras Institute will take place at Rutgers University-New Brunswick
