Academic Foundations Program (AFP) adjunct faculty gathered for the Winter 2011 AFP Welcome Meeting this week to learn about national and state trends in developmental education and to look at enrollment and outcome data for students at GRCC. The faculty also met with their departments and AFP Coordinators to plan for Winter semester – it’s all a way to strengthen collegiality among faculty and to share best practices in the field.  Check out the collage Cindy Martin, Dean of Adult and Developmental Education, put together:
