Congratulations to Dr. Kyle R. Williams (MSED 09′) who was recently recognized as an ACPA Diamond Honoree. Dr. Williams who was an accomplished scholar and practitioner, currently holds the position of Special Advisor to the Associate Vice President for Belonging, Engagement, and Community, as well as Dean of Students at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. His professional journey has always been driven by a consistent theme – the profound impact of mattering on the support and success of historically marginalized and vulnerable students in higher education.
The Diamond Honoree Program, established by the Foundation in 1999 is both a recognition program and a fundraising activity. Those nominated for consideration are recognized for their outstanding and sustained contributions to higher education and to student affairs. The funds raised on behalf of the Honorees are used for ACPA and Foundation activities in keeping with the Association’s purposes and strategic goals. Since its inception in 1999 the program has generated over $100,000.
