"The landscape in higher education is changing," said Bustamante." I am honored to be invited to serve on the ACE Board with other university and college presidents from throughout the nation to be a voice and advocate for higher education. This is a critical time when we are all re-examining how to best serve 21st Century students and prepare them to succeed in higher education and beyond."
ACE is a national organization that aims to tackle the toughest higher education challenges, with a focus on improving access and preparing every student to succeed. More than 1,700 institutions are ACE members, including accredited, degree-granting two- and four-year colleges, private and public universities, and nonprofit and for-profit entities.
Because of its advocacy role, ACE is a key point of contact on higher education matters for congressional staff and members of the executive branch, and is frequently cited in the national media on higher education issues.
