Dialogue on ACC Faculty Core Values
Highland Campus
The Faculty Senate and Adjunct Faculty Association are bringing faculty together to discuss ACC Faculty Core Values to shape future faculty programming.  It’s imperative that they hear from as many faculty as possible!

The initial set of ACC Faculty Core Values gathered from faculty Dialogues across the college in September will be polished and affirmed at a faculty-wide gathering on September 29th following the ACC General Assembly.

Highland Room 2219 : Friday, September 22, 1:30pm-3:00pm

"I personally am confident that this core values discussion will help direct future resources toward what faculty really want and need to be more effective. This is an exciting time for faculty to speak up, be heard, and help create the brightest future for our students, ourselves, and our community."
-Mark Butland, Faculty Senate President
