Student Success: Trustee Training Sessions


NCACCT Trustee Training focusing on student success continues throughout the state and is moving farther west.  A session was held at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College yesterday and a session is being held today at Isothermal Community College.  Southwestern Community College will host a session on Sept. 29.  Then, a make-up session for some colleges in the eastern part of the state will be held at Craven Community College on October 6.
 
By the end of the series of regional training, 19 sessions will have been held with trustees from all 58 colleges participating.  The trustee training, which focuses on how boards impact student success through oversight, responsibility and accountability, has been extremely well received. It's not too late to participate.  If you would like to attend one of the upcoming sessions, please e-mail Julie Woodson at woodson@ncacct.org and let her know.
