We are excited to bring you to the only training program of its kind in California, ACCCA's Administration 101. The program will be held at Brandman University in Irvine, and includes deluxe accommodations at the nearby Ayres Hotel (Costa Mesa/Newport Beach.)

The 5-day seminar focuses on the unique “nuts and bolts” and management basics for the unique California community college system. The program provides an overview of the most crucial technical, regulatory and legal aspects of administration as it applies to California’s unique community college system. Case studies and presentations provided by seasoned practitioners and system leaders will help participants apply the rules and regulations in real-world situations.

Please note the policies around our selection process:
- The class size for Admin 101 is a maximum of 72 seats
- All applicants to the Admin 101 program must go through a vetting process and be selected by a designated team of volunteers and staff based on criteria established by the Management Development Commission (MDC)

- A maximum of 5 attendees may be accepted into the program per college/district.
- If a seat on the waiting list opens up due to a cancellation in the class, pre-vetted applicants will be chosen from the waiting list with priority granted to those colleges not currently represented on the list.

Why a NACADA Summer Institute

The Summer Institute experience is based on a week-long program providing you and/or your team the opportunity to develop a customized Action Plan based on needs at your particular institution. This process is facilitated by attendance at Foundation Sessions, a choice of topicals and workshops and working daily with a summer institute faculty member and a small group of participants from similar institutional types. Specific objectives are met by participating in every aspect of the institute, from the opening general session on Sunday afternoon until the last presentaiton is made on Friday at noon. Please plan your transportation accordingly.

Quality Advising for Student Development, Retention and Completion

Research in the area of retention, in nearly all instances, concludes that the single most important contributor to student persistence and completion is the development of strong relationships between students and members of the faculty and staff. Because academic advising is the only structured service on the campus in which all students have the opportunity to develop an on-going, one-to-one relationship with a concerned member of the college community, quality academic advising should be a major strategy in every college's retention and completion planning.

By attending the Institute you will:

- Achieve a better understanding of academic advising terms, methodology, and principles
- Reach the goals and expectations you bring with you to the Institute
- Develop a network of peers globally with whom you can connect with in the future for support and assistance
- Develop a workable action plan that will enhance advising on your campus
- Leave with a positive impression of NACADA and the work that NACADA does for Academic Advising

Who Should Attend
The institute is designed for individuals or teams who have responsibility for academic advising, such as:

- Teams or individuals from an institution desiring to refine or redesign campus advising services (see the link to the right for more details on bringing a team)
- Advising Program Directors

- Academic Advisors
- Academic Counselors
- Faculty Advisors
- Campus Administrators including Deans or Vice Presidents with responsibility for advising

At the end of your Work Group sessions you will have:
