ACPA Latinx Network Campaign to endow the John Hernandez Award

About This Campaign

The ACPA Latinx Network (LN) in partnership with the ACPA Foundation is honored to announce the establishment of an endowment to fund the Dr. John Hernandez Leadership award.

The Dr. John Hernandez Leadership award is one of LNs major awards and honors the legacy and contributions on Dr. John Hernandez, who served as LN Chair from 1994-1995. Dr. Hernandez currently serves as President of Irvine Valley College. In addition to his service within LN, John served as a member of the ACPA Governing Board and recognized as a Diamond Honoree.

The Dr. John Hernandez Leadership award recognizes individuals for their leadership, citizenship, and mentorship that they have demonstrated to the Latinx Network and ACPA, and for the outstanding professional and academic contributions that they have made in the field of Student Affairs/Higher Education.

Through the generous pledges of Dr. John Hernandez ($12,500), LN Chair 1994-1995 and Dr. Ray Plaza ($5,000), LN Chair (2014-2017), the ACPA Latinx Network has already reached 70% of its goal to endow the Dr. John Hernandez Leadership award. The endowment will provide the award recipient with a one-time monetary stipend.

LN needs to raise an additional $7,500 over the next five years to reach our goal to fully endow the scholarship. Any amount will help make a difference in helping LN reach its goal.

If you are interesting in making a larger gift or long-term pledge, please connect with Ray Plaza and/or Michael Bumbry from the ACPA Foundation to learn more.

Campaign to Support ACPA Foundation

Founded in 1994 during the presidency of Charles Schroeder, the purpose of the ACPA Educational Leadership Foundation (501c3 non-profit organization) is “to enhance the student affairs profession and to generate and disseminate knowledge of college students at all levels within higher education” (Article Three of the Articles of Incorporation). The organization is now known as the ACPA Foundation to more concisely communicate its role as the fundraising arm of ACPA College Student Educators International.

The Mission - The ACPA Foundation exists to support the priorities and activities of ACPA by raising funds and developing resources that help the Association fulfill its mission. 

The Vision - The ACPA Foundation will develop sufficient assets to effectively and sustainably fund ACPA’s efforts to provide excellent professional development opportunities to members, advance knowledge in the field, and support the transformative effect of education in the lives of college students.

In order to fulfill its purpose and mission, the Foundation invites members and non-members alike to provide philanthropic support for ACPA's vital initiatives involving research, scholarship, professional development and leadership program.
