ACCP Academy Certificate Programs Introduce Newly Revised 1-Year Curriculum


Academy

The ACCP Academy is a continuous educational effort designed to deliver a flexible, curricular approach to enhancing ACCP members’ abilities in their major areas of responsibility. The ACCP Academy provides four unique professional development programs leading to certificates of completion in Career Advancement, Leadership and Management, Research and Scholarship, and Teaching and Learning.

Starting this fall at the 2013 ACCP Annual Meeting, the ACCP Academy programs will deliver all required and elective programming in sequential order, beginning with all four prerequisite “primers,” which will be offered as part of the Annual Meeting presymposia. The new schedule was developed in an effort to support continuous participation from Academy enrollees unable to complete program requirements because of increasing institutional budgetary and time constraints that limit their ability to travel to multiple meetings on an annual basis. Under the revised schedule, each Academy program will divide its offerings between the fall and spring ACCP meetings and will include options to deliver some required or elective courses online (as webinars). The new schedule and revised curriculum will allow Academy participants to complete the program of their choice in 1 year.

The ACCP Academy is committed to providing meaningful learning opportunities for its members through a unique array of rigorous and challenging academic experiences. Program participants enjoy the advantages of flexible scheduling and self-direction as well as the benefits of an interactive environment commensurate with those of other premier institutions of higher learning.
