Student Life Dean Honored by National Student Affairs Organization as a Pillar of the Profession

University of Redlands Dean of Student Life and Vice President Char Burgess was recognized recently by NASPA-- Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education as a “Pillar of the Profession” for her work at Redlands.

The NASPA Foundation Pillar of the Profession award, given annually at the NASPA conference, is designed to “recognize distinguished individuals who have served as leaders, teachers, and scholars in student affairs and higher education.”

Burgess is among 12 other administrators from institutions across the country who were nominated to receive the honor, which includes a $2,000 gift made in each honoree’s name to the NASPA foundation to further research and scholarship in student affairs.

NASPA provides professional development and advocacy for student affairs educators and administrators, and is the leading voice for student affairs administration, policy and practice.
