The Pan African Network (PAN) is one of four Networks within the Coalition on Multicultural Affairs (CMA) of the American College Personnel Association (ACPA). CMA serves as a liaison to ACPA's leadership, focusing attention on issues in education and trends, which affect students and professionals of color in the College Student Personnel field.
Specifically, CMA is composed of four singular networks: Asian Pacific American Network (APAN), Latinx Network (LN), Multiracial Network (MRN), and Pan African Network (PAN). All four Networks work collectively to promote diversity within ACPA. CMA is a nationally visible and action-oriented group that addresses the changing cultural dynamic within higher education institutions and works to create multicultural strategies and solutions.
The Mission of The Pan African Network (PAN) is to provide programs and resources that service the needs of ACPA members who identify with–and support the causes of– the Pan African community. PAN strives to accomplish its purpose through the implementation of six Core Values, which serve as guidelines for our programmatic outcomes: Educational Leadership, Collaboration, Fellowship, Advocacy, Professional Development, and Mentoring.
