President's Report on Strategic Action Areas and Initiatives, April, 2002.
American Association of Community Colleges, Washington, DC.
This paper outlines the strategic action areas and initiatives of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) for 2002. The six action areas outlined are: (1) national and international recognition and advocacy for community colleges; (2) learning and accountability; (3) leadership development; (4) economic and workforce development; (5) connectedness across AACC membership; and (6) international and intercultural education. Among the issues addressed in area one is AACC's involvement in negotiated rulemaking with the Department of Education to simplify student aid regulations. AACC is also preparing for efforts to reform the welfare reform law in order to encourage more postsecondary education and training for Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) recipients. Area two outlines, among other issues, a new project brief that describes activities at ten community colleges participating in the Teaching Scholar Partnerships program sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Area six cites the launching of AACC's new international recruitment initiative. The initiative is designed to assist member colleges in their international student recruiting efforts and to elevate the national and international profile of the AACC and community colleges in global education and exchange.
