Access, Diversity & Excellence

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

CADE’s mission is to develop a comprehensive agenda regarding the relationships between public higher education and the issues of human resources and social change. 

CADE focuses on such major issues as building a more diverse and inclusive educational ecosystem which broadens 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.
