About 2,000 community college presidents, CEOs, chancellors and state system heads from across the United States and abroad will be in Orlando April 20-24 for the 92nd annual convention of the American Association of Community Colleges.
As the host college for the event, Seminole State College of Florida’s programs will be highlighted, and more than 70 faculty, staff and students are helping to make this event a success.
"Seminole State has been instrumental in putting together this year’s AACC convention," says Norma Kent, senior vice president, communications and advancement for AACC. "This is a chance for the College to show itself on a national stage."
Seminole State will be showcased in three exhibits:
The College’s music students will be highlighted with a performance by SeminoleSound.
In conjunction with the convention, Seminole State will host delegations at its Sanford/Lake Mary Campus from Denmark and the United Kingdom. Those visitors will meet with Seminole State executives about a variety of community college issues, such as collaboration with business and industry, workforce development activities, use of information technology in delivery of education and strategies for facilitating transfers to universities.
The program for the convention, which is being held at the Orlando World Center Marriott, will feature several national speakers, including MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and political contributors Mary Matalin and James Carville.
The AACC represents nearly 1,200 two-year, associate degree-granting institutions and more than 13 million students.
