Pierce Volunteer Incentive Program for Students (VIPS)

Every year the MACUHO Host Committee and Executive Board invite undergraduate students interested in pursuing a career in Student Affairs to be part of the Pierce Volunteer Incentive Program for Students. In its twentieth 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 their conference registration fee waived.

In 2001, Lisa A Pierce founded a program called VIPS in the MACUHO region. This program was dedicated in honor of Lisa in 2004 and rededicated in 2019 as the Piece Volunteer Incentive Program for Students in recognition of the contributions of Lisa's father, Tom, to continue to support and expand the program.
As a method for recruitment, the 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.

Over time, the program has grown from 10 participants to 20 in 2020 through the financial support of our membership and the Lisa Pierce Endowment through ACUHO-I.
