The ACPA Diamond Honoree Program, established by the Foundation in 1999, is both a recognition program and a fund raising activity. Those nominated for consideration are recognized for their outstanding and sustained contributions to higher education and to student affairs. They may be former leaders of the profession, supervisors, teachers, or anyone who has had a continued and significant influence on the quality of the college student’s experience.
The funds raised on behalf of the ACPA Diamond Honoree are used to support many of ACPA’s priorities including: research and other scholarly activities; and scholarships for members to participate in ACPA’s professional development opportunities. Since its inception in 1999, the program has generated nearly $500,000 in support of the work of the Foundation and ACPA.
Diamond Honorees receive their award at the annual ACPA Convention.
Please note: All nominations are confidential until the Foundation Board of Trustees announces those selected as Diamond Honorees, and the Honorees have confirmed their acceptance of the recognition.
