Dear ACHE Colleagues,
What an incredible experience at the 2017 annual conference in Portland, Oregon, and a job well done by Past-President Clare Roby and her planning committee! What a wonderful opportunity for professional development, fellowship and fun! Thanks to all of you who contributed to the conference. As an organization with volunteer leadership, board and committees, the time, commitment and dedication of our membership shines through in our conferences and professional development opportunities.
As the fall semester and 2017 conclude, we have the opportunity to take stock of our current work and look ahead toward the opportunities and obstacles that we face locally, and higher education faces nationally.
As such, you are likely well aware of current federal tax reform package (H.R. 1 (115)), a version of which the House has already passed and Senate will vote on during the coming days. As this package currently stands, it has an adverse effect on the post-secondary populations that many of us support. Under the current plan, graduate assistantships (tuition waivers) will be taxed as regular income, making graduate education an unaffordable prospect for many of our students. Interest on student loans will no longer be tax deductible under the proposed legislation.
Access and affordability in post-secondary education are at risk in the current legislation. I encourage you to call and email your representatives to articulate the potential impact of these changes. It is a turbulent time rife with reform that impacts higher education, with the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act looming as well. As an organization, ACHE must provide the voice for those who seek mobility through affordable education options.
I look forward to the year ahead, especially seeing you at the regional meetings in the coming months. Feel free to reach out with questions, concerns and comments anytime.
ACHE President, 2018

William Boozang, Ed.D.
Boston College Certificate Programs & Corporate Outreach
Kerri White, Ed.D. recently joined the ACHE Home Office Team at the University of Oklahoma (OU) where she manages ACHE’s social media, and writes and edits much of the content for ACHE’s three weekly online newsletters:
Kerri is an ACHE Emerging Leader Institute graduate and brings a uniquely intelligent, curious, and fun attitude to her work, which is reflected in her writing.
Kerri’s primary role at OU Outreach is Arkansas/Louisiana Technical Assistance Coordinator for the South Central Comprehensive Center. In this role, she coordinates and provides strategic planning and capacity building technical assistance to state education agency leaders and staff.
Prior to coming to OU, Kerri served as Assistant State Superintendent at the Oklahoma State Department of Education where she focused on Educator Effectiveness. She is a former secondary mathematics teacher and curriculum designer. Kerri’s passion is improving the lives of students through adult professional learning, systems improvement, and policy implementation.
Invitation to ACHE Members and Regional Chairs
To ensure that future ACHE communications meet the needs of its members, Kerri invites Members and Regional Chairs to contribute in two ways: (1) submit feature ideas for future newsletters and (2) actively check in and post on ACHE’s social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn).
Newsletter Feature Ideas:
Send submissions, ideas, and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Because the three newsletters have different topics of focus, your submission could appear in any of the three.
Social Media Engagement Ideas:
Please help us welcome Dr. Kerri White to the ACHE Home Office Team as she brings her tremendous experience and talent to the organization as we focus on an exciting year of professional learning and networking.

FACES OF ACHE:
A Panel Discussion on Diversity and Inclusiveness
79th Annual ACHE Conference & Meeting
Continuing education continues to expand into the aggressive recruitment of underserved student populations, by way of community college articulation agreements and grant-supported initiatives focused specifically on the recruitment and retention of underrepresented populations in STEM. But as the challenge continues to boost enrollments and retain these students – and in light of pending changes to the Delayed Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program – there is less time to focus on diversity and inclusion programming and strategies that help not only with student satisfaction and retention, but also of those diverse faculty and staff who support them. The panel will share their insights into such topics as recruitment of diverse faculty and staff, mentorship, research projects with diverse faculty and students, and innovative engagement.
Join the conversation about diversity and inclusiveness in continuing higher education at #ACHEimagine!
October 23-25, 2017
Early Bird Registration Discount Extended
