PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. - Central Arizona College Registrar Veronica Duran has been named as the chair of the APASC Arizona Admissions and Records Articulation Task Force.
Duran, a CAC alum and employee of the college since 2002, has taken to her new assignment with great enthusiasm.
"I am excited to represent Central Arizona College and the community colleges around the state, especially in this current economic climate which has seen more students utilizing and attending two-year colleges," Duran, the college's registrar for the past three years, said.
The Academic Program Articulation Steering Committee (APASC) is a coordinating body of the statewide articulation and transfer system, as referenced in the Arizona Revised Statutes, 15-1824.
The purpose of APASC is to provide oversight of curricular alignment among Arizona's public secondary and post-secondary educational institutions. APASC is charged with helping to ensure that students are appropriately prepared and have the support services required to pursue the completion of post-secondary certificate and degree programs.
A major goal of APASC is to assist with increasing the number of Arizona students who successfully complete a baccalaureate degree.
APASC oversees the work of all committees and sub-committees of the organization, which include but are not limited to the entities described in Article IV, and maintains liaison relationships with other public entities that support the purpose of APASC.
Additionally, APASC - which reports to the Joint Council of Presidents (JCP) - is responsible for recommending institutional policy changes that support the purpose and mission of the organization.
