Reviewer Qualifications

NASPA Advisory Services reviewers are current members of the Association who are established, senior-level student affairs and higher education leaders. Reviewers must have at least ten years of senior-level experience, with minimum or equivalent service as an associate/assistant vice president, dean, or above. Reviewers bring significant student affairs senior leadership experience and/or subject matter expertise to reviews of individual divisions of student affairs at colleges and universities.

Reviewers expertly guide the inquiry process through examining campus background materials, leading interviews and meetings, acting as trusted advisors to senior institutional leadership, and serving as primary contributors to data-informed and experience-rich analyses and recommendations.

Reviewer activities vary based on the scale of a review project and whether the project includes a campus visit. Reviewer activities may include:

  • Serving as an active participant on a project Review Team. Each Review Team will consist of approximately two reviewers and one NASPA professional staff member.
  • Conducting a thorough examination of campus background materials, such as reports, assessments, and data.
  • Participating in web/telephone planning calls with the project’s vice president of student affairs.
  • Co-leading web/telephone interviews with campus members prior to a campus visit.
  • Co-leading meetings and interviews during a campus visit. Campus visits are estimated to be 1 to 1.5 days in duration.
  • Co-authoring draft and final review reports, in partnership with NASPA staff, with emphasis on expert analysis and recommendations.
  • Remotely co-presenting final reports.

Reviewer Compensation

NASPA Advisory Services conducts both Standard (remote) and Comprehensive (on-campus) reviews of divisions of student affairs and services. Each member of a Standard Review project will receive $750. Each member of a Comprehensive Review project will receive $1,200, plus agreed upon travel and hotel expenses. All reviewers will be compensated upon the completion of a project.
