2018 Associate Degree Forum

Update: Mar. 1, 2018 • Associate Degree Forum Slated for March 23 Postponed Until Nov. 2018

Based on registration totals and feedback received from numerous institutions interested in attending the ACBSP Associate Degree Forum scheduled for March 23, 2018, in Dallas, Texas, a decision was made to reschedule the event to late fall at the same location. All current registrations will be honored for the new date, which will be announced later this month in the same location. We appreciate everyone’s interest and understanding.

For questions or concerns, contact ACBSP at 913.339.9356 or

Community and Technical Colleges are undergoing massive transformation. Budgets are shrinking, vacant full-time faculty positions are being replaced with adjunct faculty, and existing faculty are expected to do more with less in an environment that is becoming more competitive.

Associate degree schools must re-tool to meet the new realities of this changing landscape. How do you rise above the competition? What sets you apart in the eyes of prospective students? What innovative solutions are you offering to prepare your students for continuing their education or starting a career?

Let's work together to answer these questions.

Topics To Be Covered

  • Effectively securing articulation agreements with four-year schools
  • The benefits of accreditation for associate degree schools
  • The potential impacts of recently proposed legislative actions on associate degree schools
  • Connecting with a community of associate degree schools that share your challenges and find solutions through shared best practices
  • And more!

In addition, this is an Open Forum where your collective associate degree voices can be heard. We want to know the challenges you face. We want to know what's important to you.

Complete details, along with registration and hotel reservations, will be available in late March/early April.
