Committee Membership is the foundation of our Association
Their talent and expertise in dealing with all aspects of college transition are needed in order for us to do our work! If you have an interest in becoming involved with a committee, please take a moment to review the descriptions. Feel free to contact any of the Chairs for more information.
Admission Practices Committee
The role of the Admissions Practices Committee is to educate the membership regarding ethical practices in college admissions as defined in NACAC's Code of Ethics & Professional Practices (CEPP). The committee monitors and discusses important trends in the educational landscape and the college transition processes affecting students, and counseling and admission professionals. The committee promotes these standards through a network of national and affiliate leaders, and acts as a liaison with NACAC.

Inclusion, Access and Success Committee
The purpose of the Inclusion, Access, and Success Committee is to facilitate understanding of issues of inhibited inclusion, the lack of access, and barriers to success for students making their way through the education system, and to create impactful change within the existing systems of higher education that exclude underrepresented students from opportunities. By educating ourselves and our colleagues about critical issues facing students and sharing the best practices in which to develop students for college success, we will change the formula that inhibits their access to higher education. We will lead initiatives to change the processes that promote marginalization of students in their path to college. With the dedication and the participation of our peers, we hope that the outcomes of these efforts will lead to more diverse college campuses, a state with a higher rate of college graduation, and from these outcomes we all will see exponential benefits.
