The Elgin Campus Advisory Committee (CAC); made up of community and business leaders, prioritized the establishment of an Agriculture degree program. Opportunities in Agriculture (OiA) will enable ACC to work with USDA agencies, other HSIs and nonprofit organizations to meet institutional and community goals.
ACC is committed leveraging data to improve teaching and OiA will be a part of that
commitment. The Project Director and Advisory Board will confer with the faculty and review
the data on student performance analyzed by the evaluator and meta-evaluator assigned to the program.
