Undergraduate Opportunities

NUFP Logo


Though undergraduate mentorship, 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. NUFP is supported by NASPA, which is a premier professional organization for Student Affairs colleagues across the nation.
