The Board of Directors of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) has appointed Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay to the group’s Commission on Diversity, Inclusion and Equity. President McKay was notified of the prestigious appointment by a letter from AACC President and CEO Walter G. Bumphus. President McKay’s appointment term is from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2017.

Bumphus, in his letter appointing President McKay, wrote, “We are sure that your insights and leadership will significantly contribute to the Board’s decision-making process and its ability to serve the interests of all AACC member institutions.”

“It is a distinct honor to be appointed to the AACC Commission on Diversity, Inclusion and Equity,” said President McKay, “and I look forward to being a strong and vocal advocate on behalf of our students and College as well as the more than 13 million students who attend community colleges across the country.”

Among the major programs and issues  the AACC Commission on Diversity, Inclusion and Equity are involved in include providing leadership development, job shadowing, preparing students for STEM careers and closing the achievement gap for students of color and low income students.

The Commission also works with other organizations and councils committed to equality, including the American Association for Women in Community Colleges, National Council on Black American Affairs and the National Community College Hispanic Council.

The AACC is the primary advocacy organization for the nation’s community colleges and represents nearly 1,200 two-year, associate degree–granting institutions.
