The ACPA International Office and Governing Board have worked together to construct position statements on areas within the political and social climate that impact higher education. These statements will serve as reference materials for those interested in understanding more about where ACPA stands on certain issues and current events.

We invite you to click on the links below to learn more about ACPA's position on each topic. ACPA will continue to review, edit, and add to this list over time. If you have suggestions or feedback, please email us at
