Access, Diversity & Excellence

The Commission on Access, Diversity, and Excellence is comprised of individuals representing a cross-section of APLU member institutions including presidents and chancellors, vice presidents, deans, and other campus constituents.

The Commission’s primary focus is to develop a comprehensive agenda regarding the relationships between public higher education and the issues of human resources and social change. The Commission focuses on such major issues as the broadening of access and opportunity; utilizing the diversity of the undergraduate experience to prepare graduates for the 21st century; enhancing diversity within student and faculty populations; and creating partnerships between universities and local and world communities to bring about beneficial social change.

The Commission on Access, Diversity and Excellence (CADE) works closely with the Office for Access & Success staff.
