Leadership Directory - Region 2

The Mid-Atlantic Region consists of the following states - Delaware , Maryland , New Jersey , Pennsylvania , Virginia , and the District of Columbia (Washington D.C.). The Region has one Regional Representative, and each state has a State Representative to promote NACADA and academic advising within the region and state; please contact any individual on the Board for more information regarding state and/or regional information.

I am delighted to have the opportunity to serve as your chair and invite you to join with me in moving our region forward.  We would like to focus our energy on increasing our membership through outreach to student, faculty and community college advisors and recognizing our members through the NACADA Awards program and the Region 2 Awards program.  These goals are achievable with your help.  Please consider volunteering your time and expertise. There are many opportunities to volunteer at the local, state and regional level and everyone is invited. Please contact me and I will help you get connected. Volunteering is a great way to meet colleagues and network, not to mention, a good way to have fun.

Region 2 Operating Principles

Mission and Purpose

NACADA Mission: NACADA promotes student success by advancing the field of academic advising globally. We provide opportunities for professional development, networking and leadership for our diverse membership

The Purpose of the Region: The Region’s purpose is to support NACADA’s mission by facilitating professional development activities, networking opportunities, leadership development, and member recruitment and service for the membership within their geographic area.

The regions propose activities to support academic advisors, faculty advisors and advising administrators within their geographic regions. Region members conduct annual region conferences, state, province or area drive-ins, promote NACADA membership and develop programs which fit the needs of their specific region.

Region Chairs, working with their steering committees, lead the functions of the regions. The following operating principles outline the responsibilities of the Region Steering Committee in accomplishing the work of the region and supporting NACADA’s mission.
