About the Commission
Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2011, the Commission for the Global Dimensions of Student Development (CGDSD) is one of ACPA's oldest and most vital entity groups. Since its inception, the Commission has served as an essential hub for ACPA members interested in global education, cross-cultural learning, and student development. Over the years CGDSD members have provided critical leadership to ACPA's efforts to engage globally. That work continues today through ACPA's Global Initiatives, our partnerships with other student affairs and services organizations like IASAS and CACUSS, and our efforts to help the association prepare for its first-ever Convention held outside the U.S. in 2016.
