Employee Listening Sessions Complete

From May through early June 2021, ACC held four listening sessions. The goal was to give employees the opportunity to learn more about the Provost search process and to share their opinions to help inform the work of the hiring committee. Through these sessions, we heard from:

  • 64 Faculty (Adjunct Faculty Association members and Full-Time Faculty Senate members)
  • 44 Administrators
  • 29 Classified Employee Association members
  • 74 members of the Association of Professional-Technical Employees 

The input collected from these sessions will be organized and shared with members of the EVC/Provost Academic and Student Affairs Search Committee as they develop the selection and interview processes.
