From the Editor
Fall has arrived! We continue to spotlight our graduate student voice series with personal stories from Master’s students Darren Pierre and Tamekka Cornelius. Darren shares his voice about his first ACPA Convention. Tamekka traveled to Ghana over the summer and shares some of her personal experiences and reflections from the trip. We complement Tamekka’s piece with Angela Simmons’ experiences on ACPA’s Cultural Study tour to Ghana.
In addition to these articles Jane Fried examines student suicide in her ethics column and Robert Hendrickson addresses student academic freedom in his legal issues article.
President Jeanne Steffes provides updates on the work of the Association and specifically speaks to the next phase of our re-organization. Julie White writes about the work her campus is doing on sustainability issues a topic emphasized by Jeanne Steffes in her Presidential address. Executive Director Greg Roberts has changed his column slightly with this issue. In the future, he will be addressing one or two hot topics in higher education in depth. He will be talking about how these topics may affect higher education and student affairs. With this issue he is also offering “conversation” with him as a way for members to discuss first-hand what he works on daily. I hope you will be able to join him for this first online discussion.
