Rody Grant, Director of Recruiting, Training and Development at Consolidated Graphics was elected to serve a 3-year term on the Accrediting Council for Collegiate Graphic Communications (ACCGC) Board of Directors. Grant's term will begin at the end of 2009 and will conclude at the close of the 2012 ACCGC Board of Directors meeting.
"I am honored to have been asked to join the ACCGC Board of Directors and look forward to working with colleges and universities around the country looking for accreditation of their graphic communication programs," said Grant.
The purpose of the ACCGC is to promote and encourage collegiate-level educational programs in graphic communications. The ACCGC also works to improve the quality of instruction through self-study and periodic review. The organization's accreditation process also enables the exchange of ideas between administrative and instructional personnel in academia and personnel in the graphic communications industries.
The goal of collegiate-level degree programs in graphic communications is to prepare students for productive technical, managerial, and/or marketing careers in this dynamic industry. The accreditation procedure was established to assist collegiate educators to develop and strengthen graphic communications academic programs whether the programs are separate majors, minors, or concentrations within an academic major such as industrial technology and comunication studies.
