Elizabeth Griego-Diamond Honoree

Elizabeth Griego retired in July 2013 from the University of the Pacific after working in higher education for 41 years. Throughout her career, she partnered with faculty to build community, foster learning, develop student leadership, design high impact practices, and mentor students and staff. Her work in student affairs was augmented by serving as vice president of the western regional accreditation association, president of CAIR, and as a Baldrige Examiner. She now actively consults on topics such as accreditation preparation, student affairs review, and executive coaching. Elizabeth worked extensively with ACPA early in her career. Later as president of NASPA, she partnered with the executive boards of ACPA and NASPA to conceptualize a consolidated umbrella student affairs association. While the campaign was ultimately unsuccessful, one outcome was the development of lifelong friendships in both associations. Elizabeth’s bachelor’s degree is from the University of Nebraska; master’s from the Ohio State University; and PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, where she was given the Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award. She is mother to Dr. Ann and Reverend Paul Griego, grandmother to Willa, and lives with husband Bob in the California Wine Country. She serves several community boards, including as Regent for Claremont Lincoln University and moderator of her UCC church.

About This Campaign

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.
