ASCCC’s Transfer, Articulation, and Student Services (TASSC) Committee is pleased to announce the TASSC Regional Meetings.
Student learning relies on the discipline expertise and teaching mastery in the classroom; however, helping students to plan their educational path and achieve their goals is the job of all faculty with student services faculty being essential players in the success of our students. Counselors and other student services faculty help students navigate course requirements, student support services, transfer agreements, and the many other pitfalls that can slow students down on their journeys. Because of the critical nature of the work student services faculty do, the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges is offering a series of meetings to help all faculty understand recent developments in regulations and initiatives that impact student service areas and how they can play a role in addressing these changes locally. This daylong event (one in the north and one in the south) features presenters from colleges across the state; general sessions and breakouts on many topics related to associate degrees for transfer, transfer agreements with the UC system, credit for prior learning, the Educational Planning Initiative, challenges facing general education and, of course, guided pathways. Join us and take away important updates and effective strategies for improving addressing the needs of students as they make their journey through your college.
The meeting will include a panel presentation on the role of student services faculty in the guided pathways framework and a general presentation on recent changes in general education. Local faculty leaders including counseling faculty, academic and students’ services administrators, ASCCC Executive Committee members, and more will participate.
There is no cost to attend, however registration is required. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
