Commitment to Inclusion
ACPA – College Student Educators International actively promotes and recognizes principles of fairness, equity, and social justice in relation to, and across, intersections of race, age, color, disability, faith, religion, ancestry, national origin, citizenship, sex, sexual orientation, social class, economic class, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, and all other identities represented among our diverse membership.
By appreciating the importance of inclusion, we acknowledge that the collective and individual talents, skills, and perspectives of members, constituent groups, and partners foster a culture of belonging, collaborative practice, innovation, and mutual respect. ACPA seeks to empower and engage professionals, scholars, and partners in actions that productively contribute to accomplishing the goals of our association.
ACPA values equity and inclusion. Should you experience a situation where we might improve, please reach out to any ACPA staff member or Mary Tregoning, the Director of Equity & Inclusion on the Governing Board. More information on ACPA’s Bias Response Protocol. Additional dialogue and comments can be offered online as well.
The ACPA19 Team is committed to offering a convention experience that is inclusive to all of our members and attendees. If you have feedback, comments, or ideas that will assist us in making the convention experience more inclusive, please contact Laila McCloud, Equity & Inclusion Chair.
