Early Career Development Institute Coach Application Form
Thank you for your interest in participating a coach for the 2021 cohort of the NASPA Early Career Development Institute, sponsored through the Small Colleges and Universities Division from February 2021-June 2021. This institute provides professionals in the beginning stages of their career the opportunity to network with other small college and university professionals, gain critical skill development, and strengthen their connections to NASPA.

This is a virtual institute that has three basic tenants:

Online Competency Development

Once a month, the cohort will participate in a webinar. Each webinar will cover specific competency areas facilitated by experts in the field who have experience . Competency areas may include institutional politics, diversity and inclusion, and Human and Organizational Resources. Coaches are highly encouraged to attend these webinars.

Intentional Cohort Building

Each participant will be intentionally placed in smaller cohorts that are responsible for finding a time to meet at least monthly and have intentional conversations driven by the information provided during webinars, current events in higher education, or other relevant professional development.

Monthly coaching sessions

Each cohort member will be paired with a senior-level administrator at a small college/university. Each pair must have a monthly phone/virtual conversation to discuss issues of career trajectory, working at a small institution, or challenges and success in their individual positions.

We are seeking senior-level administrators to serve as coaches for individual cohort members. Each coach will be paired with one member of the cohort and will engage in a monthly phone or Skype call. This call is meant to provide guidance to the early career professional as they look at career trajectory, competencies, institutional politics, and challenges/victories in their current position.


Coaches must be:

Senior-level leaders (supervising more than one functional unit) at a small college or university (FTE of 5,000 or less)
