Diversity in Leadership

Leadership & Advocacy News Item

Diversity in Leadership

  • ACE has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion in higher education, particularly in the senior leadership ranks for people of color and women. The identification and development of college and university leaders who are representative of the general population in the United States, one that is increasingly diverse, is a strategic priority. Our research, programs and initiatives call to light the complex structural barriers that undergird advantage for some and disadvantage for others, mainly people of color and women. By engaging stakeholders and gatekeepers who are responsible for selecting and promoting leaders in a generative dialogue that broadens the appreciation for the assets and experiences that diversity brings, we will advance equity and positive institutional change.
