Use {\addfontfeature{LetterSpace=5.0}STUAGNL} which should isolate  
the LetterSpace change to that group and save you a second  

What might be better yet is to define a fontface:

\newfontface\acronym[LetterSpace=5.0]{Hoefler Text}

(or whatever base font you use) and then

{\acronym STUAGNL}

again to isolate the fonts change.

Good Luck,
