ACCA Diversity Statement

The members of the American College Counseling Association (ACCA) provide programs and services that adhere to the mission of ACCA and that enhance the learning experience for students through the promotion of social justice, community development, civility, and stewardship. ACCA recognizes that multidimensional diversity enriches the campus community and enhances opportunities for human understanding, both of which contribute to the collegiate experience for all.
