Who Should Attend?

AACP encourages any faculty member, students, administrator, or staff person to attend. This institute would be particularly impactful for faculty and staff involved in curriculum and assessment committees, assistant/associate deans of student affairs, and CEO Deans. There is a special student rate, and we encourage teams to include the perspectives of students! 

Registration Information

Prior to registering, team composition should be determined, and schools/colleges can register all team members at the same time. The team maximum is 10 individuals per team. One person from the team or school can register the entire team via the online registration page. If individuals need to register and pay separately, the AACP staff will make sure that they are added to their school’s team. If a school is unable to send a full team, individuals may still register for the institute using the online form.
