Bernie Liang

Bernie Liang is the Director of the Center for Student Involvement at Seattle University, where he oversees initiatives designed to engage students in campus life and leadership development. Throughout his 20+ years in student affairs, he has dedicated his leadership to creating inclusive environments that encourage deep interrogation of our systemic inequities in higher education. A first-generation gay Asian American cisgender man, Bernie received his Master of Arts in Education in Student Development Administration at Seattle University in 2002. He has been involved with ACPA for 18 years, providing leadership to the Asian Pacific American Network (APAN), the Coalition for Multicultural Affairs (CMA), and as part of the convention team for Las Vegas and Montreal. He presented on topics including trailing spouse experiences in student affairs, supporting LGBT students of color, and navigating the mid-level manager landscape as a person of color. In 2012, he was honored to co-author a chapter on Multiracial and Multiethnic APIA professionals in higher education, published in the text Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in Higher Education: Research and perspectives on identity, leadership, and success. At home, Bernie is proud to be a loving husband to Ryan Hamachek, a father to their baby Eli Liang-Hamachek.

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.
