What your colleagues are saying about the Summer 2003 Special Recruitment Trip to Turkey:
"Meetings with the Ministry of Education, Council of Higher Education (YOK), and Fulbright are invaluable to gain first-hand knowledge about the educational system and the prospective student market. AACC provides access to such high-level meetings that are integral to the success of any international marketing plan."
-- Kelley Brayton, Portland Community College, Oregon
"Once again, the American Association of Community Colleges under the leadership of Judy Irwin and Zepur Solakian has produced outstanding results with the recruitment fair to Turkey. The fairs in Istanbul and in Ankara were well organized, well attended, and productive. I returned to Dallas to find e-mails from potential students in Turkey requesting additional information. These fairs are result driven and continue to supply great students to Richland College."
-- Thomas Adams, Richland College, Texas
"AACC did it again! The delegation to Turkey was excellent. As a newcomer to the Turkish student market, I learned so much from our meetings with YOK (Higher Education Council), MOE, Fulbright, the Turkish American Society and the US Consular's Office. Fair turnouts were impressive and I was pleasantly surprised to receive immediate applications to my college. All this plus the beauty of Istanbul and the graciousness of the Turkish people. Special thanks to the AACC team for putting this together so quickly!"
-- Kathie Kwilinski, South Seattle Community College, Washington
"AACC's organization of the Turkish Recruitment Trip was most impressive and it offers community colleges excellent recruitment opportunities and a worthwhile experience for participating colleges."
