VR partnerships with college programs, state policy and legislation will be discussed, and potential funding strategies will be shared. We will also what's new at the NCC, including the research agenda and opportunities for training and technical assistance. We are happy to discuss what is on YOUR mind, as well! Please join us.

About AUCD's SIGs

Special Interest Groups, or SIGs, are made up of individuals in the AUCD network who have a common topical interest. SIGs, which are open to anyone in the network including trainees, serve as a mechanism for sharing information, engaging in dialogue, and generating new ideas. SIGs are led by one or more individuals from the network (with AUCD staff support if needed); they typically meet in-person at the AUCD Conference and may share information via emails, conference calls, or webinars throughout the year. Because SIGs are driven by the interests of the AUCD membership, new SIGs may emerge while ones that have run their course may disband.
