At its recent annual meeting in Washington, DC, the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) named seven new directors and elected a slate of new officers. Eastern President Elsa Núñez was one of the seven newly appointed directors.
"I am honored to join the board of directors of the Association of American Colleges and Universities," said Núñez. "As the leading advocacy group for liberal education in the country, AAC&U has an important role to play in ensuring that our nation fully understands the value and importance of undergraduate, liberal arts education. The work of the association also closely aligns with Eastern's mission as Connecticut's only public liberal arts university. I am delighted to serve in this new capacity as a member of the board."
