Guadalupe Muller, an Urban Studies major and the current SGA President, Guadalupe
has been accepted into the 2015-2016 class of the Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education (NASPA) Undergraduate Fellows Program (NUFP). NUFP creates possibilities and changes the landscape of student affairs and higher education. The mission of the NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program is to increase the number of historically disenfranchised and underrepresented professionals in student affairs and/or higher education, including but not limited to those of racial and ethnic-minority background; those having a disability; and those identifying as LGBTQ.

Since the program’s inception in 1989, NUFP alumni have been active and contributing professionals on campuses throughout the country. By mentoring students from traditionally underrepresented and historically disenfranchised populations, this semi-structured program diversifies and broadens the pipeline of individuals entering student affairs and/or higher education. Students and mentors apply as a pair. If accepted into the program, students are then known as Fellows and have opportunities for scholarships, on-campus mentorship, and professional development events.
