The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) is known to be the voice of America’s community colleges. They represent and advocate for nearly 1,200 associate-degree granting institutions and their students, whose combined enrollment tops more than 12 million students—almost half of all U.S. undergraduates. Recently, President Williams was elected to serve as a representative on their Board of Directors.
Some of the AACC’s Legislative and regulatory positions include FAFSA simplification, making short-term workforce programs Pell Grant-eligible, and keeping community college affordable and accessible to all. With such alignment of interests, Williams said she is excited to take a leadership role with the organization.
“I’m so honored to be elected by the AACC to be a representative to their board,” Williams said. “This appointment allows SPC to be a part of an important national conversation, and I look forward to lending my own voice to that mission.”
