Dr. Marilee Bresciani Ludvik has been named the 2022 recipient of the American College Personnel Association’s (ACPA) College Student Educators International Contribution to Knowledge Award.

“Frankly, I was so humbled and touched because the people who have received this award before me are those who have contributed to the way that that I think about the profession,” said Ludvik. “And what the profession is really about is student success.”
“At UTA, we aim to lead the student affairs profession and the higher education community in providing advocacy and research that fosters excellence in college student learning,” said Teresa Doughty, dean of the College of Education at UT Arlington. “This award is an honor and a testament to the quality of faculty and staff in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at the University.”
