STEPHENVILLE, Texas—Adam Joiner, a junior history major from Arlington, has been selected as a National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) Undergraduate Fellow (NUFP).

As a fellow, Adam will have opportunities to explore the field of student affairs administration through a campus-based mentorship with Ashley Tull, Tarleton’s assistant vice president for Student Life Studies, as well as participation in other professional development activities.

"When I found out I made the program I was elated and overjoyed for the opportunity,” Joiner said. “It's an honor to be selected into such a prestigious program and I cannot wait to get started.”

NASPA serves as the leading professional association for the advancement of the student affairs profession. As such, NASPA provides a host of programs, experiences and services aimed at student development and professional growth in concert with colleges and universities across the country.

“We were very pleased to learn of Adam’s selection as a NUFP fellow,” said Rusty Jergins, vice president for Student Life and dean of students. Jergins also noted, “Adam, like so many who enter our profession, has gained an interest in student affairs work after significant involvement as an undergraduate student leader.”
