Walter G. Bumphus, president and CEO of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), recently appointed Manassas Provost Roger Ramsammy to the AACC’s Commission on Academic, Student and Community Development. Ramsammy’s three-year term began July 1.
“We are sure that your insights and leadership will significantly contribute to the Board’s decision-making process and its ability to serve the interests of all AACC member institutions,” Bumphus said.
The AACC’s Commission on Academic, Student and Community Development addresses issues relating to testing, access, accountability, student support services and student completion and success. Commission members encourage collaboration among member institutions, discuss issues facing community colleges and provide advice to the Board.
“It’s an honor to be selected for this important role and I am looking forward to working with my fellow commission members to strengthen all community colleges,” Ramsammy said.
As the voice of the nation’s community colleges, AACC delivers educational and economic opportunity for 13 million diverse students in search of the American dream. Uniquely dedicated to access and success for all students, AACC’s member colleges provide an on-ramp to degree attainment, skilled careers and family-supporting wages. Located in Washington, D.C., AACC advocates for not-for-profit, public-serving institutions to ensure they have the resources and support they need to deliver on the mission of increasing economic mobility for all.
