AP Assembly

Letter from the President

Dear fellow APs and Oakland University community members,

If you’re a new AP at Oakland University, welcome! I also want to give a heartfelt “welcome back” to all returning APs.

The AP Assembly is a professional organization comprised of all Administrative Professionals on campus. We serve in an advising capacity to the university President; have representation on the University Senate, as well as various senate committees; provide opportunities for connection with our six committees (Recognition; Communication; Community Engagement; Nominations and Elections; Professional Development; and Voice of the AP); and strive to develop community across campus.

The elected, volunteer executive board provides leadership guided by our AP Assembly constitution. Please look for our AP Assembly Newsletters for updates on upcoming events or check our meeting and events link on this website. The 2022-2023 Executive Board looks forward to serving you this year through our goal to best meet the needs of APs.

As your President for the 2022 to 2023 academic year, my goal is to lead the AP Assembly by continuing the fantastic work of our past AP Assembly Presidents. Considering my staff role as Senior Instructional Designer, I plan to incorporate best practices regarding digital accessibility,  online communication, virtual, and HyFlex (in-person and online simultaneous) meetings. My professional expertise encourages flexibility to accommodate in-person and online interactions wherever possible.

Consider this your personal invitation to take advantage of all the things we will be offering over the next year. I truly believe that your participation in AP Assembly events positively impacts our staff’s campus culture, morale, and spirit. I look forward to meeting and engaging with all APs and the Oakland University community at future meetings and events. I am excited to embrace all of the opportunities to come for the AP Assembly in 2022-2023.

Looking forward to your participation and engagement,

Nic Bongers, Ph.D. (he/him)
President, AP Assembly
