Dr. Jerrett D. Phillips, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Success at Cameron University, was recently selected to serve a two-year term on the James E. Scott Academy Board of the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA).
“Selection to the board is a tremendous honor,” says Phillips. “I am excited to serve in collaboration with my colleagues and provide thought leadership on the topics and issues facing postsecondary education.”
Phillips began his term by attending the first board meeting on April 3.
The academy was established in response to NASPA’s initiative to provide continued professional education and development to meet the needs of vice presidents for student affairs, offering skill development in the areas of leadership and executive effectiveness.
The James E. Scott Academy is led by a board comprised of 20 accomplished vice presidents for student affairs (or the equivalent) who lead divisions at a wide variety of institutional types throughout NASPA’s seven regions. The primary role of the board is to provide advice and thought leadership on critical issues in student affairs and higher education and to advise the NASPA president and staff regarding these issues. Additionally, the board plays a key role in identifying principles of effective student affairs practice for recognizing and responding to the trends and challenges present in the field and in higher education more broadly.
Cameron University is a proud member of NASPA and many other national organizations that support the student college journey. For more information on the James E. Scott Academy, please visit https://www.naspa.org/division/james-e-scott-academy.
