ACC faculty create deeper connection with four-year university partners

Faculty, administrators, and advisors spent an afternoon exploring transfer options with nearby four-year institutions at the University Partnership Summit Friday, November 10.

Hosted by the Teaching & Learning Excellence Division (TLED), the summit provided an opportunity for faculty to engage in deeper conversations with partners at Huston-Tillotson, Texas State, Concordia, and St. Edward’s University.
