She also serves as an Affiliate Assistant Professor in the CSP master’s program. Kristan’s research focus is primarily related to college student leadership and living-learning communities. Additionally, Kristan has published several articles and book chapters related to student leadership, alternative spring breaks, multiple identity development, and new professionals needs.

In addition, Kristan has been an active member of ACPA, most recently serving as the Director of External Relations, and also a member is the CAS Council, representing the National Clearinghouse for Leadership Programs.

2020 Diamond Honoree

About This Campaign

Click here to donate on behalf of multiple honorees.

The Diamond Honoree Program, established by the Foundation in 1999 is both a recognition program and a fund raising activity. Those nominated for consideration are recognized for their outstanding and sustained contributions to higher education and to student affairs.

The funds raised on behalf of the Honorees are used for ACPA and Foundation activities in keeping with the Association’s purposes and strategic goals. Since its inception in 1999 the program has generated over $100,000.

Donations given to this campaign will also count toward the overall ACPA Foundation's Invest & Transform campaign.

Thank you for your support of the Diamond Honoree campaign. If you wish to contribute to multiple campaigns, at this time credit card payments require separate transactions for each honoree. If you wish to make contributions to support multiple diamond honorees with only one transaction, please mail the ACPA Foundation one check with the total amount, indicating to whom the amount should be distributed and in what portions. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
