Spring Faculty Minimum Qualifications and Equivalencies Regional Workshop

As a part of its efforts to respond to the recommendations of the Strong Workforce Task Force regarding the recruitment and hiring of qualified CTE faculty, the ASCCC held regional workshops in the fall to bring together faculty leaders from around the state to engage in conversations about faculty minimum qualifications and the effective use of equivalency processes. The ASCCC is continuing these efforts this spring, in partnership with the Chancellor’s Office and our CIO and HR partners, by holding workshops for college teams of faculty leaders, CIOs, and HR professionals. These workshops are designed to not only provide information, but to also catalyze discussions within and between colleges about minimum qualifications and the application of local equivalency processes.

Friday, March 10
