At last week’s Presidents Academy Summer Institute, we spent a lot of time discussing technology, both in terms of the technology we use on campus to help students and staff succeed, and how we prepare our students for the workforce when technological advancements, such as the rise of artificial intelligence, are continuously altering the skills they need. As college presidents, you are leaders in a brave new world. None of us can truly know what’s around the corner, but no matter what we face, our mission to serve our students and communities will never waver.
As a new wave of younger community college presidents is emerging, they are using their generational ties to connect with young students and bring a fresh energy to the job. Read about it in CC Daily.
Peer mentoring at community colleges can enhance the student success experience, for both mentees and their mentors. Learn more at the AACC 21st Century Center.
