NAPAHE Featured Testimonial

photo-monicaI joined the University of Central Missouri (UCM) President's Office Staff in 1999 as the Assistant to the President.  At the time, I was new to higher education and had much to learn about the culture and the environment.  Within months of starting my new position, the President's Executive Assistant, who was a member of NAPAHE, introduced me to the organization and encouraged me to join.  I have been a member ever since that time and with the exception of 2003 when I was mobilized with my US Army Reserve unit, I have attended the annual workshop every year.  Like most public institutions, UCM has continued experiencing losses in state funding over the past several years, which has required all of us to make cuts in one area or another.  

Welcome to the website for the National Association of Presidential Assistants in Higher Education.

We hope you will find information about our organization both interesting and helpful. In addition to information generally available to the public, we have a wealth of information available to our members.

NAPAHE Awards/Grants

NAPAHE awards were established to recognize presidential assistants for their work. Each year, NAPAHE honors prominent leaders, achievements, and service for contributions and impact our members make on campuses in both big and small ways. NAPAHE members are encouraged to nominate outstanding colleagues for their stellar achievements and contributions for consideration as an award recipient in a NAPAHE awards to be given at our annual conference in conjunction with the American Council on Education’s Annual meeting.
