Message from the Editors

Hello, ACPA Members.

Here we are in August and it is time to start a new academic year. Whether programs, classes, and move-in have begun on your campus or those events are still a bit around the corner, now is a busy time for many of us. This issue of Developments has some great resources regardless of your work in student affairs.

We have great information for supporting your team in our articles on inclusive supervision and supporting graduate and professional students. If you work on the academic side of your college or university you might also find some good insights in the articles on retaining first-generation college students in honors programs and advising online graduate students. If you are in the midst of change and transition, the article on program revision may speak to you. Finally, for the faculty, a great article on incorporating diversity topics into the classroom.

While we hope you each had a chance for some rest and rejuvenation over the past few months, please continue to take care of yourselves in the coming weeks. There is a lot of positive energy coming our way. There can also be some anxiety and stress. Be good to yourselves so you can be good for students, colleagues, and other partners in your work.

Have a wonderful academic year, everyone.

Michelle Boettcher & Reyes Luna
