Dec 09, 2013

North Central College’s Marlena Martinez, a junior psychology major from Plainfield, has been selected for a prestigious program that offers networking, mentoring and other opportunities for students who want to pursue careers as higher education administrators.

Martinez has been accepted into the 2013-2014 class of the Undergraduate Fellows Program of Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, formerly known as the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA).

The NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program is a semi-structured mentoring program at a student’s undergraduate institution for those who wish to explore and better understand the field of student affairs. Students also have the opportunity to attend a national conference, participate in paid internships and in NASPA’s Summer Leadership Institute.

Martinez recently joined another North Central College student and a faculty and staff member to give a presentation at the Diversity & Inclusivity Teaching and Research Symposium at Indiana University Southwest.
