The group’s founders—Marie Bigham, Steve Frappier, and Brandi Smith—were recently recognized for their successes, with Facebook naming ACCEPT as one of its top 100 groups in 2017. And the group’s influence is not limited to its online presence. ACCEPT—which stands for Admissions Community Cultivating Equity & Peace Today—has hosted local programs for students, developed affiliate and NACAC conference sessions, and convened in-person meetings around the country."
