Message from the Chair
The Western Alliance of Community College Academic Leaders (The Alliance) is a valuable resource for all two-year and community college academic professionals in the Western States, and provides a professional and collaborative environment to participate in meaningful dialogue with your peers. The importance of community colleges nationwide has increased exponentially within the past few years and now, more than ever, it is essential to facilitate strategic conversations to maintain and enhance the academic rigor and integrity of our institutions while decreasing time to graduation and increasing graduation rates. In addition, community colleges are tasked with training students to respond to the workforce needs of business and industry.
The mission of the Alliance is to improve educational resources by reimagining the work we do through sharing of information, ideas, and resources while working collaboratively towards achieving common goals. Membership privileges include access to our listserv and discounted rates for regional conferences and meetings.
Thank you for your interest in the Western Alliance of Community College Academic Leaders, I look forward to meeting you!
