AACC engages with faculty

By AACC 21st Century Center Staff

A new program will get more community college faculty involved with AACC.

The American Association of Community Colleges recognizes that faculty are the lynchpin of the student success agenda. The association has created the Faculty Ambassador program to ensure that its faculty-specific communications reach those individuals responsible for teaching and learning.

AACC seeks one faculty ambassador from each member college who will serve as the association’s conduit with all faculty members at the institution.  The faculty ambassador will receive information from AACC about new opportunities, and in turn, will share this information with the college’s teaching community.

Each selected faculty ambassador will receive a complimentary base registration to the 2020 AACC Annual Convention in National Harbor, Md., which will take place March 28–30.

In the future, all faculty at AACC member institutions will be able to sign up to receive direct communications from the association.

In recent years, AACC has been actively working to engage with faculty, through a Faculty Advisory Committee and with more sessions at the annual convention aimed at faculty. In 2018, AACC launched the Dale P. Parnell Faculty Distinction Recognition to honor those faculty who excel in and out of the classroom.
