Mid-Manager's Institute (MMI)

The Mid-Manager's Institute (MMI) is a unique professional development experience for student affairs professionals with 5+ years of experience. The program offers an opportunity for mid-level professionals to enhance and develop skills related to thriving as a mid-manager and preparing for future opportunities. During the Mid-Manager's Institute participants will have the opportunity to learn from senior higher education administrators, peers, and partners. Participants will have an opportunity to network with other mid-managers in small groups as well as hear from experienced professionals through presentations and group discussions. This year’s content and format will be different from the last two years. Interested members are welcome to attend MMI for a second time.

The Mid-Managers Institute will be held on Sunday, October 21 from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

At this year’s Mid-Manager’s Institute, we are thrilled to have three national leaders on hand to address these very important and timely topics. Dr. Richard Walker, Vice Chancellor/Vice President for Student Affairs & Enrollment Services at the University of Houston, will present on planning and assessment. Dr. Gage Paine, Senior Consultant at Keeling and Associates, will present on risk management issues. Lastly, Sam Gonzales, Vice President for Student Affairs at the University of Texas at San Antonio, will present on higher education finances. All three presenters will focus on decision making frameworks and competencies that mid-managers can use to be successful and promote career advancement.


In addition to our great presenters, participants will complete a career mapping exercise, meet other mid-managers from across the state of Texas, and engage in thoughtful and provoking discussions.
