AMATYC Project ACCCESS Link Open!
March 5, 2018
Good news! AMATYC Project ACCCESS is recruiting for Cohort 15
and will be accepting applications until May 15th.
Math faculty for whom the 2018-2019 academic year will be the first, second or third year of their first full-time, renewable position at a community college are invited to apply to be a Project ACCCESS Fellow. If you are ineligible, please consider encouraging faculty who are new to your department to apply.
Project ACCCESS is a mentoring and professional development initiative for two-year college mathematics faculty. The project’s goal is to provide experiences that will help new faculty become more effective teachers and active members of the broader mathematical community.
This year Project ACCCESS will be selecting its 15th Cohort. Project ACCCESS Fellows will attend the 2018 AMATYC Conference near Orlando, Florida, and the 2019 AMATYC Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. While attending these AMATYC conferences, Project ACCCESS Fellows will participate in sessions specifically selected for Fellows just starting out in their career as two-year college faculty.
Project ACCCESS provides a tremendous opportunity for new faculty to learn and grow. For more information click here.
Again, the application deadline is May 15th
with selected Fellows being notified by July 1st.

Save the Date:
This conference will include two keynote speakers, a panel discussion, and active discussions all focused on questions such as:
- What do our students need to succeed in a 2017 world and beyond?
- What role could/should technology play in learning mathematics?
- How do we maintain a rigorous balance between conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, application/problem solving?
- What strategies are most effective for student success in the mathematics classroom?
- What mathematics should be taught and how should we teach it to meet the needs of our students and the academic/work culture they will face?
Plan to join your colleagues for active discussion about the teaching and learning of mathematics! Details about presenting, registration and accommodations will be posted soon.
The spring meeting of ArizMATYC will be at Mohave Community College in Lake Havasu City on Friday, March 31.
