The ACPA Senior Scholars Program began in 1984. ACPA Senior Scholars advocate for the integration of scholarship into the practice of student affairs. Through the creation of an engaged scholar network, Senior Scholars keep abreast of promising work and identify critical issues that could benefit from inquiry and attention. The Senior Scholars Program provides scholars with a continuing opportunity to promote scholarship through the presentation of programs of interest to the profession at each national convention and to serve the association on projects related to their fields of interest.
