Iowa ACAC Mission

To ensure students equitable treatment by, and access to, the widest array of postsecondary educational options, the Iowa Association for College Admission Counseling seeks to foster positive and productive relationships among individuals, institutions, and other organizations involved in the transition process.

Happy New Year!  2018 marks a wonderful milestone for the Iowa Association for College Admission Counseling – our 70th anniversary!  We have accomplished much in our 70 years, but there is still much to do.  As we blow out the candles for our “birthday” celebration, here are a few wishes that I hope come true this year:

  1. DACA students are given a clear path to citizenship and increased access to higher education.
  2. We make college affordable for all by supporting increased state and federal appropriations for need-based assistance.
  3. We decrease the student to counselor ratio at high schools.
  4. We truly embrace access and diversity at our institutions and in our every day work.
  5. We never forget to see the amazing potential of each student.

If any of these make your wish list, I hope you’ll consider taking action.  One way to do so is by attending the Iowa ACAC “Visit the Hill” event in Des Moines on February 20. Learn more at

Let’s make it another great year!
