Educational Advancement Program

"I am excited about the Educational Advancement Program and the opportunities it provides for ACC employees to achieve their dreams through additional education. I encourage all eligible employees to take full advantage of this program"

-Dr. Richard M. Rhodes ACC President/CEO

The Educational Advancement Program provides opportunities for ACC employees to pursue their educational and professional goals with the college's support. Through shared governance, each employee association steered development of the program, which was launched in Fall 2012 to maximize and enhance ACC's educational advancement offerings.
