Please register for NACCE Member Webinar- Discussion of Doctoral Program on June 23, 2016 4:00 PM EDT at:

The NACCE community hosts a large doctoral student population and recent doctoral completers. This trend is indicative of mid-career advancement in the community college career pathway. How do NACCE members approach their doctoral programs and research? What were deciding factors to start a program? How did they select a program? How can NACCE members support each other on their doctoral journeys? How can NACCE shape the mindset of future leaders of higher ed? Join the conversation whether you are in a doctoral program, thinking about starting one or recently completed.
