OJC President Dr. Alvarez Named Pillar of the Profession

 

Otero Junior College is proud to announce that the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) Foundation selected Dr. Timothy Alvarez, OJC president, as a member of the class of 2019 Pillars of the Profession. This new class of Pillars will be introduced at the 2019 Annual Conference in Los Angeles, Calif.

The Pillars award is designed to honor members of the profession who: are individuals of sustained professional distinction in the higher education field, as defined by donors and supporters; have served in leadership roles in NASPA, either regionally or nationally; are being recognized or remembered by colleagues, friends, students, or student organizations for extraordinary service; and who have significant lifetime contributions to the higher education field.

“I am grateful and humbled to be considered a “Pillar of the Profession” for NASPA.” Dr. Alvarez said. “This organization has given me so much in terms of professional development and networking. It has allowed me to sharpen my knowledge and understand the lived experiences of our students. This validation makes me want to commit more time and energy to improve the well-being and social mobility of our students and community.”

The Pillars award is a way to engage others in the mission of the NASPA Foundation while recognizing valuable contributions that have already been made by one individual. To help recognize each Pillar, the nominator is asked to lead a fundraising initiative to donate at least $3,500 to the NASPA Foundation. Participants in this fundraising have historically been the Pillar’s past colleagues, students, mentees, and others with whom the Pillar has served in the profession. They are asked to contribute – in your name – to the Foundation.
