2014 Academic Academy

Event Dates
Deadline to Register/Application Deadline

Silverado Resort and Spa

While current initiatives are focused on compressing timelines for student completion, it is now more important than ever to reassert our belief in a broad general education (GE) to provide our students with the tools they will need to succeed in an ever-changing global society. Join fellow community college, CSU, and UC faculty members for discussions on the value and relevance of GE at this year's Academic Academy!
