Clemson education professor named to national association post
CLEMSON — Pamela Havice, professor and coordinator for higher education and student affairs programs in the Eugene T. Moore School of Education at Clemson University, has been named director of the Faculty Council for the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA).
As director, Havice serves as the chair of the Faculty Council, the faculty representative on the NASPA board and the presiding officer of the NASPA Faculty Assembly. She also oversees a myriad of events, programs and offerings for faculty at the association’s annual conference and throughout the year.
“The NASPA Faculty Council and Assembly are only 2 years old, so it is an honor to have been chosen to be only the second director,” Havice said. “Since this organization is in the ‘toddler’ phase of development, there continues to be a great deal of community-building needed. I am excited to be a part of the leadership for this amazing group.”
Havice has been a member of NASPA for more than 15 years, during which she has served in leadership positions at the regional level and has actively participated in the annual conference. She also serves on the American College Personnel Association and NASPA Task Force on Professional Competencies, the NASPA national selection and awards committee and the Southern Association of College Student Affairs Foundation Board, and she is the Clemson University faculty representative to the South Carolina College Personnel Association.
Comprised of more than 14,000 members in all 50 U.S. states, 25 countries and eight U.S. territories, NASPA focuses on the advancement, health and sustainability of the student affairs profession through professional development, policy advocacy and substantive research to inform practice for student affairs professionals.
