ACPA’s NextGeneration Institute, generally referred to as NextGen, will take place Sunday, March 25 and Monday March 26 immediately before the ACPA23 Annual Convention in New Orleans. NextGeneration Institute participants are also invited to stay for the ACPA23 Annual Convention, for no additional charge.

NextGen is a unique opportunity for approximately 125 undergraduate students from across the world to learn about ACPA, graduate preparation, functional areas, and trends in Student Affairs and Higher Education. This conference is an opportunity for the next generation of Student Affairs and Higher Education educators to meet and learn from current graduate preparation program faculty, NextGen alumni, and professionals with a variety of personal and professional experiences and identities from diverse institutional types and positions. Not only is NextGen a great way to learn more about Student Affairs as a profession, but it provides an opportunity to reflect on the intersection of your personal and professional identities so that you can begin identifying a meaningful career path for yourself.
