Alcorn’s Hogan presents at the NASAP Student Leadership Institute, escorts student leaders

Devina Hogan, director of Student Engagement at Alcorn, attended the 18th Annual National Association for Student Affairs Professionals (NASAP) Student Leadership Institute held May 28, 2014, at Savannah State University in Savannah, Georgia. Hogan served as presenter and also brought with her four newly elected 2014-15 Student Government Association (SGA) members: SGA President Zackeus Johnson, Miss Alcorn Cortni Cooper, 2nd Vice President Adrian McLain, Historian Denzel Turner, and student ambassador Frederick Brown II.

Hogan’s presentation "The Hazy Future of Black Greek Letter Organizations" discussed hazing versus membership intake process (MIP).

“The presentation focused on where Black Greek Letter Organizations are headed should hazing continue to occur,” explained Hogan. “We explored why the National Pan-Hellenic Council moved away from pledging in the 90’s to what we now refer to as MIP.”

For Hogan, who has attended the conference in the past, she notes the great networking opportunities with peers and the benefit of building relationships with other HBCUs.

“Attendees shared information and skills that are vital for student leaders and heard from leading figures in leadership, business and entertainment, and gained new perspectives on creativity, leadership, social justice and conflict resolution,” said Hogan.

The National Association of Student Affairs Professionals' (NASAP) objective is to provide newly elected Historically Black College and University (HBCU) student leaders an intensive, interactive and stimulating learning program. For more information on NASAP, visit
