Plan now to attend ACC’s Fall General Assembly, Friday August 24 at the Hyatt Regency hotel, 208 Barton Springs Rd. in downtown Austin.
The event-filled day begins at 8 a.m. with breakfast and a chance for faculty and staff to visit information tables for various college departments and programs.
ACC President/CEO Dr. Richard M. Rhodes then will kick off the morning’s presentations with state of the college remarks. He and Interim Provost Dr. Enrique Solis together will discuss ACC’s ongoing reaffirmation of accreditation, including the upcoming site visit by representatives of ACC’s accrediting body, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
Keynote speaker Dr. Mark David Milliron, Chancellor of WGU Texas, will present “Emerging Insights on Learning, Technology, and the Road Ahead in Education.” His presentation will include a student panel sharing their perspectives on their educational experience at ACC.
Participants can choose from several afternoon professional development workshops, including “Analyzing Data Using TIPS,” and “Shoot, Edit, Upload: Video Tools for Impactful Communication.” Sessions will run from 1:30 to 3 p.m. and from 3:15 to 4:45 p.m. at Highland Business Center.
