The Voices We’re Not Hearing in Public Higher Ed
Too often, college and university governing boards resist bringing students and the public into decisions that have a powerful impact on them.
Andy MacCracken is executive director of the National Campus Leadership Council, which he co-founded in 2012 with the mission to empower student leaders to be influential stakeholders in public discourse. He helped the Obama White House launch several policy initiatives, including introducing President Obama when the president took action to support student loan borrowers and speaking at the It's On Us campaign launch. He is a former leader of the DC Student Alliance.
MacCracken earned his bachelor's degree in political science and his master's in public administration from American University, where he served as student government president.
