Project ACC

What is Project ACC?

Project Active and Collaborative Communities (Project ACC) is designed to increase faculty awareness and implementation of engaged learning practices (for example active and collaborative activities, group projects, class discussions, impromptu reflective writing, internships, project based learning, and service learning). We will achieve this over a several year period as successive cadres of Faculty Fellows take on leadership roles at the college and support their colleagues in future cadres.

Each group of Faculty Fellows will serve and be compensated for three semesters (including summer) to research best practices, apply them in their classrooms, then lead other faculty members at a week-long Project ACC Institute. Throughout their tenure, Fellows will be sharing what they have learned about engaged teaching techniques that are effective for their specific Area of Study (AoS).

The goal is to promote faculty leadership focused on improving student learning and student success. In addition, materials created for Project ACC Institutes will be added to a repository to allow for a comprehensive faculty orientation program and ongoing faculty development opportunities.
