The Orientation Professionals Institute is a three-day training program that takes place just prior to the NODA annual conference each year. It is designed for professional staff members who have less than two years of experience in orientation and transition services—either new professionals or those with experience in higher education but who recently acquired orientation as part of their job. The institute connects these participants with experienced professionals in the field and provides valuable training that participants can apply on their own campuses.


Institute Features

OPI is staffed by six outstanding faculty with extensive experience and who have held leadership positions within NODA and who will bring together a wide variety of orientation and administrative experiences. Regardless of the type of institution you represent, you will have ample opportunity to interact with faculty, other NODA leadership, and participants who share common interests and challenges.

There will be a maximum of 84 participants who will be placed into different groups throughout the Institute such as groups by type of institution and NODA regions.

OPI is held in conjunction with the NODA Annual Conference which participants are encouraged to attend and learn more about orientation, transition, and retention.
