2019 ACBSP Associate Degree Forum



Community and Technical Colleges are undergoing massive transformation. Budgets are shrinking, vacant full-time faculty positions are being replaced with adjunct faculty, and existing faculty are expected to do more with less in an environment that is becoming more competitive.

Associate degree schools must re-tool to meet the new realities of this changing landscape. How do you rise above the competition? What sets you apart in the eyes of prospective students? What innovative solutions are you offering to prepare your students for continuing their education or starting a career?

Let's work together to answer these questions.

Topics To Be Covered

  • Emphasizing local collaboration to enhance the associate-degree experience
  • Building successful articulation agreements with four-year institutions
  • Recruiting and retaining students with a focus on program completion
  • Understanding trends and addressing realities of adjunct professors
  • Learning best practices in business education from ACBSP Best Teaching Winners
  • Using specialized accreditation to improve your program
  • And more!
