NUFP - What is NUFP?
The NASPA Undergraduate Fellows program
NASPA is the leading association for the advancement, health, and sustainability of the student affairs profession which provides high-quality professional development, advocacy, and research for 15,000 members in all 50 states, 25 countries, and 8 U.S. territories.The NASPA Undergraduate Fellow Program (NUFP) is a mentoring program for undergraduate students wishing to explore and better understand the field of student affairs and/or higher education. By mentoring students from traditionally underrepresented and historically disenfranchised populations, this program diversifies and broadens the pipeline of our profession. Students and mentors apply as a pair. If accepted into the program, students are then known as Fellows and have opportunities for scholarships, on-campus mentorship, and professional development events.
The NUFP Mission
Because some students need more opportunities than others, NUFP creates possibilities and changes the landscape of student affairs and higher education. The mission of the NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program 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.
