Diversity Leadership Program Testimonials

Throughout this whole program, it has been clear that NASFAA is taking action and walking the talk of making sure that everyone is seen and heard. Everyone has a voice, and we are stronger when we break down barriers to make sure there is true equity in our processes and profession.

It is an excellent program that provides exposure and networking opportunities for the participants. It takes you beyond the financial aid office experiences and connects you with legislation and the policymaking process.

I would highly recommend FAA's who are interested in furthering their careers and advancing in the field apply for the DLP. Through the DLP, I was able to meet and interact with some very dynamic people as "brothers" and "sisters" in the cohort. I am also appreciative to NASFAA for putting the effort forward to help FAA's at member institutions take the next step in securing the pipeline for the future of the profession.

- Dameion Lovett

I'm thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the inaugural DLP group.  Our cohort is a pretty amazing group of financial aid professionals. The opportunity to learn about our profession and the great things that folks are doing from the institutional to the national level has been pretty awesome!

- Sylvia Martinez

The DLP has been very instrumental in my involvement with my state association (DE-DC-MDASFAA). The Leadership and Legislative Conference and Expo's Association Governance Pathway was an amazing experience and definitely prepared me for the Federal Relations Chair role at Tri-State.
