Can you believe just last week, we were wrapping up #ACPA17? The Commission for Housing and Residence Life is thankful for the many ways you came out to learn more about us, through our commission social, open meeting, sponsored programs, and social media, but it doesn’t stop at conference. CHRL remains committed to your growth and development with a clear focus on the knowledge, skills, and competencies needed by housing and residential life professionals.
Additionally, with ACPA’s Strategic Imperative on Racial Justice, CHRL is working to identify intentional ways housing and residential life professionals can draw attention to how racial justice impacts the various aspects of our work and the impact we can have in our respective departments.
We thank ACPA’s new President, Stephen John Quaye, for spearheading this focus as we live out our mission, vision, and core values as an organization: http://www.myacpa.org/values. The CHRL directorate body spent time during #ACPA17 processing where we are and where we are going and we want for you to be engaged in the work ahead.
As we move through this next ACPA year, we hope you’re able to identify clear ways to create real change in your respective areas.
Coming soon—a word from Dr. Troy Seppelt, our now Past Chair, and Laura Arroyo, the current Chair, of CHRL.
