Diversity Advisory Council

The Diversity Advisory Council (DAC) is a group of industry leaders who serve as a volunteer resource supporting ACRP’s efforts to increase diversity in the clinical research workforce. DAC members recommend strategies to recruit and retain outstanding, high-quality clinical research professionals and students from historically underrepresented groups.

The Academy

The Academy of Clinical Research Professionals is an independent affiliate of ACRP who administers ACRP Certification programs. Academy leadership is provided by a volunteer-based, member-elected Board of Trustees.
