Dr. Kris Renn Receives ACPA Senior Scholar Award

April 1, 2011
Dr. Kristen Renn, Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Administration, received a 2011 Senior Scholar Award from the American College Personnel Association (ACPA). ACPA is the leading comprehensive student affairs association that advances student affairs and engages students for a lifetime of learning and discovery.

The ACPA Senior Scholars Program was implemented in 1984. ACPA Senior Scholars advocate for the integration of scholarship into the practice of student affairs. Senior Scholars, through the creation of an engaged scholar network, keep abreast of promising work and identify critical issues that could benefit from inquiry and attention. The Senior Scholars Program provides scholars with a continuing opportunity to promote scholarship through the presentation of programs of interest to the profession at each national convention, and to serve the association on projects related to their fields of interest.

ACPA Senior Scholars represent the best of engaged scholarship relevant to student affairs work in higher education. Nominees are senior members of the profession (for example, generally full professors or senior student affairs officers) who have made exemplary and sustained contributions to ACPA’s mission of generating and disseminating knowledge and who have the commitment to further advance research and theory.
