 Community College Associations Join Forces to Prepare Future CEOs 


The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) and the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) today announced a new collaboration that will focus on presidential leadership and community college governance. The two national associations, which represent the presidents and governing boards of more than 1,200 community colleges nationwide, are uniquely positioned to make the necessary commitment to address the leadership challenges facing this sector.

The new collaboration is designed to address three trends that have the potential to erode community college leadership at a time when the country is calling on community colleges to address completion and student success, and to do more with fewer resources. These trends are the graying of the pool of current and future community college presidents, the shrinking pool of potential presidential candidates, and the continuous rotation and recomposition of governing boards.
