Future of the Profession

A forward-looking initiative to design a stronger, healthier, and more sustainable campus housing profession.


ACUHO-I Strategic Plan

Our way forward.

The ACUHO-I strategic plan is a guiding document that provides members a broad, long-term understanding of ACUHO-I’s priorities as well as transparency into how resources will be used.

Shaped by input from more than 1,400 members and informed by an intentional assessment of the opportunities and risks facing the Association and the profession as a whole, it outlines the high-level plan to achieve ACUHO-I’s mission and vision, which are driven by our core values and beliefs.

  • We value inclusive excellence and fostering a diverse, inclusive, and equitable membership that can influence staff and students’ sense of belonging and engagement.
  • We value leadership and engagement that supports, challenges, and inspires our members to greatness while serving our students with humility and care.
  • We value advocacy and responsiveness that champions the profession’s concerns and leverages resources for action.
  • We value cultivating global knowledge within the housing profession to transform it into meaningful content expertise that guides our practice.
