Dr. Cindi Love opens her tenure as the new Executive Director of ACPA with a challenge to ACPA members to not sit on the back row during the intense debates in higher education. She paints a vision of ACPA members participating in and leading the intentional institutional efforts that create the kind of tensions that catalyze culture-bending and mind-bending changes in campus life as higher education is subjected to the extreme heat of external regulation, decreased funding and new demands for persistence and completion, accessibility, accountability and affordability.
