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.
