Dr. Jody Jessup-Anger named 2022 ACPA Diamond Honoree 

Dr. Jody Jessup-Anger, professor and chair of educational policy and leadership, has been honored as a 2022 ACPA Diamond Honoree.  

The Diamond Honoree Program, established in 1999, is a way for those that care about students — and the research, scholarship and programs that promote student development and success — to help advance the association’s efforts. Diamond Honorees are “championed” by dedicated individuals who recognize their specific contributions and choose to raise funds in honor of each Diamond Honoree’s outstanding and sustained commitment to higher education through student affairs and student development. Those funds are then utilized to help sustain the ACPA Foundation in its support of the research, scholarship and programs that advance the field. 

Dr. Jessup-Anger is co-author of “Living-Learning Communities that Work: A Research-Based Model for Design, Delivery and Assessment,” co-editor of the “New Directions for Student Services volume: Addressing Sexual Violence in Student Affairs and Higher Education,” and co-editor of the second edition of “Maybe I Should . . . Case Studies in Ethics for Student Affairs Professionals.” She co-led the Elon University Center for Engaged Learning 2017-19 Research Seminar on Residential Learning Communities. In fall 2017, she served as scholar-in-residence for Workshop Architects, a firm specializing in the design of campus spaces 

She currently serves as co-editor of ACPA Books. Her research explores how the collegiate environment can facilitate or impede student learning and development.
