Nine Implementation Teams have been created to help implement the recommendations of the 21st-Century Commission and to broaden its engagement of the community college field and other key constituents. The teams, comprised of community college experts/former commissioners, are working to evaluate progress made toward implementing the report nationally and to uncover any specific challenges experienced by AACC constituencies. The Nine Implementation Teams are:
AACC will launch a campaign to promote the 21st-Century Commission Report that employs traditional and new media to reach the nation's 1200 community colleges and AACC affiliated councils, government, philanthropy, business and industry, and other stakeholders.
The proposed "AACC 21st-Century Center" will utilize Web-based resources/tools and other technologies to deploy 21st-Century Commission recommendations to community colleges and their stakeholders. Materials could be used to provoke discussions with governing boards, faculty and other constituencies, and would include links to evidence-based promising practices, programs, and innovations.
