Congratulations to the following six College of Liberal Arts and Sciences students who have been accepted into the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) Undergraduate Fellows Program for the 2015-2016 academic year.
Michael Cox (mathematics), Jazmin Murguia (journalism), Nur Parpucu (genetics), Angel Raymundo (psychology), Berenice Real (psychology and world languages and cultures), and Jeane Robles (genetics) will participate in the program.
The mission of the NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program (NUFP) is to increase the number of historically disenfranchised and underrepresented professionals in student affairs and/or higher education, including but not limited to those of racial and ethnic-minority background; those having a disability; and those identifying as LGBTQ. At the heart of NUFP is the ongoing exchange between the Fellow and mentor to develop a sense of what a career in students affairs and higher education might be like. Mentors serve a critical role in executing the goals and objectives of NUFP by engaging Fellows in mentoring and networking experiences, providing Fellows with knowledge, insight, and understanding of the professional opportunities available in student affairs and higher education, and creating experiences that the Fellows would otherwise not have. Since the program’s inception in 1989, NUFP alumni have been active and contributing professionals on campuses throughout our country.
