Greetings from NCSD!
The NCSD, an affiliate council for the AACC is the premier and only national student affairs organization that dedicates its efforts and advocacy to community colleges and all colleges that adopt the mission of the community college movement. NCSD offers professional development and advocacy for student affairs professionals.
I encourage you to seek opportunities to support NCSD’s mission nationally, regionally and locally. If your organization is not a member of NCSD, I welcome you to join. Although we support the holistic development of all students, NCSD is the leading advocate for first generation college students, adult learners, and students otherwise disadvantaged or underrepresented in higher education. Our nation’s community colleges are an excellent choice for millions of people looking to advance academically, vocationally, and personally. NCSD is committed to student success, diversity and inclusiveness of students and student development professionals. If you are not a member please, join and participate in our annual leadership institute, national conferences, and professional webinars. I hope to see you at our national conference, Emerging Leaders: Envisioning the Future of Student Affairs this October in Tampa, Florida. Best wishes to you and your college this coming year.
Kenneth Ray, Jr.
2013-2014 NCSD President.
