Commissions represent the job/functional areas or professional specializations in which ACPA members are employed or have an interest. Most commissions offer electronic updates and newsletters, provide opportunities for educational programs and networking at the Annual Convention, and offer programs and services to members. Members can volunteer for activities, including leadership positions within the Commissions. Individuals can indicate which commissions they would like to join when becoming an ACPA member or renewing their membership, or by updating their memberships on the “Committees” page. There is no additional cost for Commission memberships.
The Mission of CSI
The focus of the Commission is students in colleges and universities and their environments. Efforts of the Commission are directed toward a deeper understanding of the students, their characteristics, purposes, attitudes, behavior, mores, campus activities, and community life as a basis for more effective planning of relevant programs for students. A major emphasis of the Commission’s work is on the integration of out of class activities of students on the campus and in the larger community with the formal academic curriculum. The college student’s total educational experience is seen as a potent force for student development. The Commission fulfills its function not only through convention programming but also through research and ongoing task force efforts aimed at advancing and advocating the development of more visible student organizations and activities programs. Within the Association, the Commission provides an avenue for involvement of anyone working with and/or interested in student activities at post-secondary institutions.
