Survey Now Open for Next Edition of American College President Study May 26, 2022 Section 1 ContentACE's American College President Study (ACPS) has long served the higher education community as the most comprehensive, in-depth, and frequently cited source of information about the college presidency and pathways to higher education leadership. With data collection underway for the 2022 American College President Survey, presidents of all types of institutions are encouraged to participate before the June 30th deadline. The results will be presented at ACE2023, ACE’s Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, and in the forthcoming report, The American College President: 2023 Edition. There has never been a more crucial time for presidents to have their voices heard. “There will be a lot of lessons that we hope we can draw from this flagship survey,” Hironao Okahana, director of Research at ACE, told Inside Higher Ed, noting that it will also offer insights into “the presidential experience in the time of COVID.” The new edition will focus on the intersectional lenses of race and gender, in particular how leaders of color and women find their way into the top executive roles. Newer questions are also centered on presidential well-being, a deeper dive into presidents’ educational and professional backgrounds, how they are addressing racial justice issues on campus, and how gender may impact a president's experience and advancement. ACPS has been conducted approximately every five years since 1986, with the most recent edition and an accompanying interactive data explorer released in 2017. With generous support from the TIAA Institute, ACPS continues to capture important data on presidential demographics, search and selection processes, career trajectories, and duties and responsibilities.
