NPI I is designed for new Student Life professionals with less than five years’ experience in the field. The Institute meets for approximately three hours per month for nine months. Topics of relevance to new professionals include student development theory; making professional connections; crisis management; and legal issues in higher education.
NPI II, designed for professionals with five years’ experience or more, complements the topics explored in NPI I and allows for more in-depth discussion of topics of interest to participants. Many topics are explored through case studies presented by Student Life staff. NPI II also meets for three hours per month for nine months.
Other Student Life professional development programs such as Crimson Colleagues and the Social Justice Series are currently on hold. For information about any professional development programs, please contact Laura Thomas.
