As an organization, NODA understands the transition and retention issues faced at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are unique and often not discussed through traditional professional development opportunities. 

Therefore, a major focus for NODA’s Annual Conference is to ensure all orientation, transition, and retention professionals are given ample access to professional development. Over the past few years, NODA conference assessments revealed a common trend with our HBCU faculty and staff members attending the annual conference and leaving unfulfilled and less empowered. With this analysis, we look to address the concerns by offering a HBCU Summit.

Save the Date: Virtual HBCU Summit
April 2-3, 2024

The  HBCU Summit at NODA will provide HBCU professionals the opportunity to gather to create meaningful and solution based dialogue around the challenges and opportunities of doing the work of orientation, transition, and retention at their institutions. The HBCU Summit workshops will be comprised of HBCU leaders from across the country meeting to empower, uplift and educate participants.
