Lisa A. Pierce Volunteer Incentive Program for Students (VIPS)
Every year the MACUHO Host Committee, Recruitment & Retention Committee and Executive Board invite 12-16 undergraduate students interested in pursuing a career in Student Affairs to be a part of the Lisa Pierce Volunteer Incentive Program for Students. In its 17th year, this program provides an opportunity for undergraduate student staff members to learn more about the field of Student Affairs by attending the annual MACUHO conference. In exchange for volunteering and attending a special series of sessions at the conference, VIPS participants will have his/her conference registration fee waived.
In 2001, Lisa A Pierce founded a program called VIPS in the MACUHO region. As a method for recruitment, the Lisa A Pierce VIPS Program focuses on bringing undergraduate students interested in Student Affairs to the annual MACUHO conference. Interested students must apply and be selected to attend the program.
Please note that participants will be responsible for making their own transportation arrangements. VIPS applicants are selected based upon the quality and completion of the online application, at the MACUHO website. Preference will also be given to undergraduate students in their junior or senior years, attending the program for the first time.
Every year the MACUHO Host Committee, Recruitment & Retention Committee and Executive Board invite undergraduate students interested in pursuing a career in Student Affairs to be a part of the Lisa Pierce Volunteer Incentive Program for Students. Over time, the program has grown from 10 participants to 16 in 2015 through the financial support of our membership. R+R is currently working to continue to grow the program to "20 for 2020".
