NPHC Plots are constructed on college campuses to represent each of the NPHC organizations (the Divine Nine). These plots give students, alumni, and community members the opportunity for reflection, gathering and celebration. Our local NPHC chapters have worked exceptionally hard on this project, and it is our mission to see it come to life. Join our mission and support this monumental project here: http://gvcmp.us/23itvv

Getting an endorsement from Dr. George Kuh is pretty much as good as it gets in the Student Affairs world.
Over the weekend, current and prospective SAHE students had the opportunity to listen to a keynote presentation by Dr. Kuh, and meet him during a book-signing. In addition to serving as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Illinois, and the Chancellor's Professor Emeritus at Indiana University, Dr. Kuh is the Founding Director, Senior Scholar and Co-principal Inves...tigator at the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment. He has written over 300 publications on topics related to institutional improvement, college student engagement, assessment strategies, and campus cultures. He has also been a consultant to more than 350 institutions of higher education and educational agencies in the United States and abroad.
Missouri State University was certainly lucky to have Dr. Kuh visit over the weekend, and we'll all keep our fingers crossed that Dr. Kuh's sign proves to be good luck for these Cohort 9 students' job search!
