Grand Rapids Community College President Bill Pink was elected to the American Association of Community Colleges’ board of directors.

He was among eight new members who were recently elected to the 32-member board of directors who advocates for community colleges, representing almost 1,200 two-year institutions and more than 12 million students.

“Serving on the AACC board will allow me to promote GRCC on a national level,” Pink said. “When we are relevant and responsive, community colleges have a dramatic impact on people and entire regions. AACC is a valuable resource, helping us collectively grow and improve, and also speak with one strong voice to tell the community college story.”

The organization supports and promotes member colleges through leadership development, policy initiatives, award-winning publications, innovative programs, research, and strategic outreach to business and industry and the national news media.

“President Pink is a highly respected by his peers around the country, as evidenced by his election to a coveted position on the AACC board,” said Walter G. Bumphus, AACC president and CEO. “I am confident that Dr. Pink will represent and advocate for community colleges effectively on the national level. The AACC staff, current board members and I look forward to welcoming him to the board of directors.”

Pink’s term will run until the end of 2023.
