Congratulations to Harry Le Grande, ACPA 2016 Diamond Honoree

Dear Division of Student Affairs,

It’s with great pleasure I announce that our Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, Harry Le Grande, was selected as a 2016 American College Personnel Association (ACPA) Diamond Honoree.

Those nominated for the Diamond Honoree Program are recognized for their outstanding and sustained contributions to higher education and to student affairs. As ACPA Foundation President, I personally can’t think of anyone better suited for this Diamond Honoree recognition than VC Le Grande, who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to student affairs for nearly 40 years.

You can read more about the members of the 2016 Diamond Honoree class and learn more about VC Le Grande’s contributions to higher education, here.

ACPA is the leading comprehensive student affairs association that advances student affairs and engages students for a lifetime of learning and discovery. ACPA has nearly 7,500 members representing 1,200 private and public institutions from across the U.S. and around the world. The Diamond Honoree Program, established in 1999, is a way for those that care about students, and the research, scholarship, and programs that promote student development and success to help advance those efforts.

VC Le Grande will be formally recognized at the upcoming ACPA conference in Montreal, Canada, in March 2016. In the meantime, however, please congratulate him when you see him on campus for his well-deserved achievement.
