d. Equity & Inclusion Statement.

CPAK, the College Professional Association of Kentucky, is a state division of the American College Personnel Association. We are dedicated to the promotion of diversity, inclusion, equity, social justice, and decolonization. This promotion is encouraged through the understanding and education of our own individual members which in return trickles out onto our colleagues in the commonwealth. With the knowledge-based opportunities provided through CPAK, we give tools to understanding systems of oppression and injustice, and the many ways to work towards their dismantling.

The process of dismantling for CPAK is ground in the ACPA Strategic Imperative for Racial Justice and Decolonization.
