The Donna M. Bourassa Mid-Level Management Institute is an ACPA signature educational program for those desiring to understand their authentic leadership, strengthen their capacities and understand self and organizational dynamics in order to lead well.
Inspired by the ACPA Strategic Imperative for Racial Justice & Decolonization , The Social Justice Academy (SJA) is designed as a learning lab to bring together Higher Education professionals to learn about and promote a deeper level of social justice standards, enhancing and refining our skills and competencies to create greater inclusion for all members of our campus communities and beyond. Over the course of 4 in-person sessions, professionals in all functional areas and experience levels will explore personal and social identities, learn about the dynamics of privilege and its role in society, build a deeper understanding of ACPA's Racial Justice & Decolonization Framework, and create tools to become a change agent on their home campuses."
Join us at Northern Kentucky University for our annual conference, where we will examine how higher education and student affairs professionals can take an active role in creating campus environments that promote student success through collaboration, creating access, and developing resilience in ourselves, each other and our students.
