2017 - 2018 NASPA Lead Initiative Institution Application


1/2/2017 - 7/7/2017

 

 NASPA Lead Initiative Institution Application 

Application Deadline - June 30, 2017 

The Lead Initiative began in 2012-2013 with three primary goals.  First, the initiative was seen as a way to advance the institutionalization of Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement (CLDE) work in student affairs divisions and postsecondary institutions more broadly.  Second, we wanted to facilitate peer-to-peer sharing and collaboration across the participating colleges and universities.  And finally, we sought to increase the awareness of student affairs’ overt contributions to students’ citizenship development, civic learning, and community engagement.  After the first five years of our efforts, we can safely say we have made significant progress towards these goals. 

As we transition into year five of this initiative, we are again seeking connection and engagement with NASPA members and NASPA institutions committed to CLDE work on their campus.  Whether you are just beginning efforts to stimulate campus work in this space, or are a seasoned nationally recognized campus leader in CLDE work, NASPA hopes you will consider joining the Lead Initiative. 

Institutions selected to participate in this initiative will work collaboratively in cohorts to share resources, promising practices, and participate in professional networking opportunities.   Lead institutions receive support and continuing professional development from NASPA through this network as well as public recognition for their efforts.  Please see the summary document of participation below for more details as to what you and your institution can expect in the various levels of the Lead Initiative.  For additional information about the Lead Initiative, please visit NASPA’s CLDE webpage at: https://www.naspa.org/constituent-groups/groups/lead-initiative

Applications are due June 30, 2017.
