The National Orientation Directors Association (NODA) was chartered in 1976 and continues the tradition of orientation, retention and transition professionals who have met annually for over 40 years. The Association is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of regional representatives and officers. Editors for the various NODA publications, regional coordinators, and other appointed positions work closely with the Board to plan and implement activities and services. National and regional networks address special interests such as the adult learner, two-year and small colleges, Canadian colleges, multi-ethnic affairs, GLBT issues and parent services.
Through its awards, scholarships and internship program, NODA further encourages excellence in orientation, retention and transition programming. Awards are given annually to outstanding professionals and contributors to the field, as well as for excellence in publications. Student leaders are honored in each region. The Norman K. Russell Scholarships provide financial support to graduate students pursuing careers in orientation.
