Both faculty members and students were active in the ACCP academies. Dr. Chahine graduated from the Leadership and Management Academy and Jim Bruce was the only student enrolled in the academy. In addition, Dr. Poulakos completed the first module and two elective courses in the Teaching and Learning Academy.
