Welcome to the Commission for Academic Support in Higher Education!
The Commission for Academic Support in Higher Education was founded in March 1977 as the Commission for Learning Centers in Higher Education. Back when ACPA used the numerical system to note Commission names, we were Commission XVI.
Over the years of our existence, we gradually expanded our focus to include other functional areas that may fall under the heading of Academic Support, including academic advising, developmental education, tutoring programs, learning assistance programs, and learning centers. In July 1995, our name officially changed to Academic Support in Higher Education.
As a Commission, we believe that students and their academic success should receive active and effective support from student development and the academic community.
