This year's program of events offers a diverse array of training opportunities for the ACCSC membership. In 2014, the PDC program is designed around four Focus Areas:

  • Trends and Innovations in Higher Education
  • Career and Student Services
  • Faculty and Staff Development
  • Best Practices in Accreditation

But the PDC is so much more than just training. The PDC is all about community. It provides an opportunity for the membership to hear directly from the leadership of the Accrediting Commission on the latest initiatives and activities impacting the sector, and a forum to celebrate the success of high-performing institutions and dedicated individuals.
