  6. 6. Featured Artists Viet Mai was born and raised in San Diego, CA by a single mother and two older brothers. He learned early on how to entertain himself, using creativity and imagination to make sense out of his surroundings. As a youth, Viet was interested in how the world worked--from the toys that he dismantled, to the insects in his backyard. Since then, he has studied how the world works through observing people, culture, economics, and education. Viet began exploring his creativity by writing poetry while a student at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). With influences from Ethnic Studies and Music classes, as well as lyrics from Hip Hop artists, Viet focuses his writing and performing towards education, community development, self-reflection, and empowerment. Also known as vKnowledge, Viet began performing spoken word around San Diego in 2001 at open mics. As his talent and creativity bloomed, he was sought after as a featured poet at many events and venues in Southern California, and he has appeared in venues across America. In an effort to inspire others through art and culture, Viet is a co-host and organizer of San Diegos largest Spoken Word event, ELEVATED. Ultimately, Viets mission is to collaborate with community members to educate, motivate, and inspire the youth through spoken word, art, and culture. He has facilitated numerous workshops with various organizations and youth programs. After obtaining his BA in Math-Computer Science from UCSD, Viet currently works at the MAAC Community Charter School and the Village of Promise Collective Mentoring Project and continues to edutain his audience as a member of Collective Purpose.

  11. 11. Professional Competency AreasIn July 2010, the NASPA Board of Directors and the ACPA Governing Board approved Professional CompetencyAreas for Student Affairs Practitioners.This set of Professional Competency Areas is intended to define the broad professional knowledge, skills, and, in somecases, attitudes expected of student affairs professionals regardless of their area of specialization or positional rolewithin the field. All student affairs professionals should be able to demonstrate their ability to meet the basic list ofoutcomes under each competency area regardless of how they entered the profession. Thus, this document isintended to inform the design of professional development opportunities for student affairs professionals by providingoutcomes that can be incorporated into the design of specific curriculum and training opportunities. Additionally, ifstudent affairs professionals desire to grow in a particular competency area, they can examine expected learningand skills in the intermediate and advanced levels. Such examination allows individual practitioners to use thisdocument to help guide their own choices about professional development opportunities afforded to them. In thisdocument, the terms “practitioner” and “professional” are used interchangeably. We expect that the contents of thisdocument will evolve in accordance with the needs of the profession and those whom the profession serves.

History, Philosophy, and Values The History, Philosophy, and Values competency area involves knowledge, skills, and attitudes that connect the history, philosophy, and values of the profession to ones current professional practice. This competency area embodies the foundations of the profession from which current and future research and practice will grow.

How has their socialization limited their freedom and potential for authenticity, intimacy, and fulfillment? While the struggles and needs of male college students are well-documented, there is a need to engage a diverse range of college men in the critical reexamination of their socialization. 2011 NASPA Western Regional Conference

We will discuss specific and achievable ways to mentor students. #track28 Teaching Men to Align Values Revolution II Mandy Womack (University of San Diego) & Jason Schreiber (University of San Diego) We try to engage our male students in conversations to align their values with daily actions. Yet, we know that todays society is pressuring and hindering men to access emotions and explore their own purpose, causing struggles with building trust and relationships. Lets challenge previous methods and offer insight to a new era of how we engage men in the authentic discourse of connecting values to their individual and collective actions. #track29 STEP Student Learning and Success Satisfaction Theresa Garcia (San Diego State University), Raga Bakhiet (Southwestern College), & Rafael Alvarez (San Diego City College) STEP Partnership of San Diego (SPSD) is a student success initiative built on best practices of Mathematics, Engineering, and Science Achievement (MESA) and funds from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
