Message from the President
Ralph Johnson, Ph.D. | May 2023
Suffice it to say that this has been a very busy spring semester for CAS. In addition to releasing the 11th version of our “book of standards,” CAS exhibited at two major student affairs conferences and soon, we will unveil a new website! Just imagine the inordinate amount of time that the CAS leadership and the entire Council had to invest in order to complete two major deliverables within the same window of time. Please join me in expressing gratitude to the Council for its dedication and commitment to these major projects.
