2017 Virginia Leadership Academy



VASPA is proud to sponsor the 4th Annual Virginia Leadership Academy for campus-wide student leaders across the Commonwealth of Virginia, hosted at Old Dominion University from May 18-20, 2017.

This intensive three-day leadership academy will allow newly elected campus leaders and their advisors to share ideas and solutions, receive training and personal consultations from current Student Affairs Vice Presidents, Deans of Students, and invited leadership experts. The academy will also promote intentional team development and synergy in planning among a cross section of student leaders and advisors from each campus. Finally, the academy will facilitate networking with peers from colleges and universities across the Commonwealth of Virginia.
