The Academy for Community College Leadership, Innovation, and Modeling (ACCLAIM) is a 3-year pilot project funded by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, North Carolina State University (NCSU), and the community college systems of Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. ACCLAIM's purpose is to help the region's community colleges assume a leadership role in community-based programming and in effecting collaboration among community leaders and organizations to identify and seek solutions to critical concerns. The program has four main components: (1) a continuing education program for community college presidents, administrators, faculty, governance officials, and other community leaders; (2) a doctoral degree program in community college leadership; (3) the development and dissemination of program materials, guides, and aids focusing on strategic planning, environmental scanning, mapping of community college publics, community leader identification and involvement, networking, needs assessment, coalition formation, community development, and evaluation; and (4) collaborative university program enrichment. Evaluation data will be systematically collected and analyzed throughout the pilot program. Three advisory groups will advise and guide the project staff in its management of the pilot project: the intra-university steering committee; the regional community college leadership development advisory board; and the executive committee of the advisory board.
