From the Executive Director: Our Longstanding Mission, the Power of Education to Change Lives, Shape Communities and Build a Better World

As the country reflects on the effects of the affirmative action decision handed down by the Supreme Court last month, ACI remains driven by a profound belief in the power of education to change lives, shape communities and build a better world. We stand by our mission’s longstanding commitment to promote diversity, equity and inclusion within our organization and throughout the educational landscape we serve.

As a collective of educational entities, we recognize the incredible impact we can make when we all come together. We also understand that true excellence in education is achieved when we embrace the richness of our diverse perspectives, backgrounds and experiences. Through this collective tapestry, we can create inclusive environments that inspire, challenge and uplift all students of all backgrounds.

Human potential should not be limited by race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status or any other characteristic. Much can be taken away from you in a lifetime, but the education and experiences you obtain remain with you forever.

No matter what challenges lie ahead, we are stronger together. Here’s to the beginning of a great academic year!

In gratitude,

April Arnold, CFRE
Executive Director
