AACC accepting abstracts, award nominations for AACC Annual

By AACC 21st Century Center Staff

It’s time to look ahead to 2023 and AACC Annual. The conference will be held April 1-4 in Denver, Colorado. The theme is “Reaching New Heights,” and AACC wants colleges to share how they are reaching new heights.

Formerly known as our Call for Proposals, now is the time for colleges to submit an abstract that outlines how they are reaching new heights in advancing community colleges and their students.

AACC is seeking abstracts for AACC Annual from staff and faculty at AACC member colleges that highlight programs and services implemented that help colleges operate more efficiently and better serve students. Session abstracts should fall into one of these conference tracks:

•    AI, AR, VR and Emerging Technologies
•    Developing a Work-Ready Workforce
•    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives
•    Enrollment Declines
•    Teaching and Learning for Student Success
•    The Community College of the Future

The deadline to submit an abstract for consideration is November 15 by 4:59 p.m. (ET). Learn more here and read these questions before submitting abstracts. Begin the submission here.
