Today the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) and Higher Ed Live announced a new partnership to support the student affairs arm of the Higher Ed Live professional development network. The partnership makes the series of Student Affairs Live webcasts and podcasts available for free to the public. This is a landmark partnership for the network bringing a professional organization on board as the sole sponsor for student affairs content for the first time.

The availability of Student Affairs Live to the ACPA membership will fill a long standing gap between higher education professionals who seek professional development opportunities in a time when budgets for such opportunities are extremely limited.

“This strategic partnership calls attention to the power of pairing an innovative professional development delivery method with the strength of a renowned professional organization. ACPA has a long standing history of thought-leadership and is respected for generating and disseminating knowledge. I am thrilled to be a part of what we can accomplish together,” said Heather Shea Gasser, Student Affairs Live co-host.

Cindi Love Ed.D., executive director at ACPA, says, “We are honored and delighted to join Higher Ed Live in catalyzing conversations at the most critical intersections of our lives as student affairs professionals. Our work is layered, complicated and life-changing for students for each of us. We need a place to gather and talk and listen deeply. No one in higher education should miss this opportunity to rethink and reset with Student Affairs Live hosts Heather Shea-Gasser and Tony Doody.”

Broadcasting live, each episode on the Higher Ed Live network features exclusive interviews with professionals, authors, consultants, scholars, practitioners, and other thought leaders from colleges and universities across the country. The episodes are made available in syndication on, YouTube, Google+, iTunes and other popular sharing platforms.
