AACC President and CEO Walter Bumphus has communicated with many college presidents and chancellors in Texas. In a recent communication with the Texas Association of Community Colleges (TACC), President and CEO, Jacob Fraire indicated that a meeting of the presidents of the affected colleges will take place on August 29. At that meeting, a list of pressing needs will be generated. That list will be shared with AACC leadership and we will provide information to our member colleges that have expressed the desire to assist our Texas colleagues at this time.
We are grateful for the outpouring of support and offers of assistance from AACC member colleges.
Walter G. Bumphus, Ph.D.
President and CEO
