Pillar of the Profession - Dr. Jody Donovan
Dr. Jody Donovan has been selected as a Pillar of the Profession by the Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education (NASPA) and the NASPA Foundation in recognition of her many years of outstanding teaching, research, and service to the profession.

The NASPA Foundation recognizes Pillars of the Profession to serve two purposes:  to pay tribute to a select group of people who have provided stellar leadership and service to the student affairs profession; and to honor of these individuals with gifts to the NASPA Foundation.  The NASPA Foundation supports future student affairs leaders and invests in research to further our knowledge about students, our educational institutions, and the critical impact student affairs has on student success.  Jody has been a leader in our profession for many years, and so many students and professionals across the country have benefited from her friendship, mentoring, leadership, and, of course, her excellent teaching and research.  Jody will be recognized as a Pillar of the Profession at NASPA’s 96th Annual National Conference in Indianapolis in March 2016.  Visit to support her contributions to the profession.
