Program Description

So you want to be an Administrator? is a program for faculty and classified professionals who wish to acquire more knowledge about the role of the community college administrator. Grounded in ACCCA’s leadership values and framed by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) Competencies for Community College Leaders, the program provides aspiring administrators an opportunity to engage with team members in a safe environment to better understand the foundational concepts needed to make the transition into administration. Participants will have an opportunity to explore key organizational elements unique to California community colleges, have the ability to inquire and seek clarification about various administrative duties and responsibilities, and ask newly minted administrators about how they made the transition.
