Access, Inclusion, & Diversity Committee

Purpose

The Access, Inclusion, & Diversity (AID) Committee serves MASFAA by acting as a catalyst and advocate for the engagement of the association and its members in issues related to higher education access, inclusion and diversity. AID engages the membership by stimulating discussion that promotes awareness of how financial aid professionals can and do influence the status of the various underrepresented populations we all seek to serve.

Composition

The Committee is comprised of one or two appointed chairpersons as well as a number of volunteer committee members. Designated AID members serve as active liaisons to and involved members of the Professional Development and Training, Conference, Communication, and other committees.
