Why Join ACL?
When asked what members value most about their participation in the Association for Collaborative Leadership (ACL) they frequently say two things:
1) ACL colleagues share experiences and practices generously. ACL exposes higher education consortium leaders and staff to ideas about collaboration that they haven’t yet encountered, and to experiences and practices they haven’t yet tried.
2) The ACL network of colleagues is invaluable. ACL offers a welcoming home for people who do this very unique work. These colleagues become among the first people a consortium or collaboration leader can seek out for advice, feedback, and ideas on how to move the work of their organization forward.
