Professional Development Guides

What are the participants going to get out of the experience?

ACPA NextGen is searching for a few good people to serve as Professional Development Guides (PDGs)! This year PDGs work closely with a group no more than 5 NextGen attendees. NextGen is a unique opportunity for approximately 125 undergraduate students to learn about Student Affairs and ACPA.

PDG expectations:


  • Meet virtually with your mentees prior to convention
  • Attend the mentor/mentee session and lunch on Sunday March 3, 2019
  • Provide advice and guidance to your matched students
  • Support students who are participating in the ACPA convention experience
  • Be available post convention to work with your students as they request your assistance


You can apply to be a PDG by clicking here. Professionals who wish to serve as a PDG and require accommodations in order to serve can indicate those needs on the application form.
