TACUSPA's New Professional's Institute is an exciting and unique addition to your TACUSPA Conference experience that allows for new professionals to come together through their shared experiences as newcomers in the field. The Institute will allow for a merger of your fresh perspectives and new ideas to pair with the valuable insights of seasoned professionals. The Institute will provide participants with learning opportunities while making connections with their peers and gaining insight from upper level Student Affairs leaders across Texas.
Questions regarding the New Professional's Institute can be directed to the NPI Coordinators, Veronica Guzman (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Brenda Rodriguez (email@example.com).
The Institute will cover critical topics such as:

Meet the Faculty Mentors
TACUSPA is grateful the following Student Affairs professionals who have volunteered to serve as Faculty Mentors during this year’s New Professionals Institute. Each NPI participant will be guided by one of these leaders in a small group with other new professionals.
