Dr. Jan Walbert, Vice President for Development, has been selected as the 2011 recipient of the Fred Turner Award for Outstanding Service to NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, the pre-eminent Student Affairs professional organization with over 11,000 members at 1,400 institutions.  The Fred Turner Award is a distinguished honor that recognizes Walbert’s leadership regionally and nationally with NASPA over the course of almost 30 years.  In addition to Walbert’s role at Arcadia as Senior Student Affairs Officer since 1989, where she positively affected the lives of thousands of students, through NASPA she has instructed, motivated, and inspired young and seasoned Student Affairs professionals across the country. Walbert served as President of NASPA in 2007-08, and held positions of leadership nationally and in the region. She was selected for the Region II Turner Award prior to consideration for the national selection. The annual award honors a NASPA member with distinguished service to the association who has demonstrated continuous NASPA membership for 10 or more years, and who has served in a leadership role at the state, regional, or national level of NASPA. The award will be presented at the NASPA annual conference which will be held in Philadelphia in March 2011.
