CLAC in a Nutshell


The opening plenary will begin with a broad definition of CLAC and a brief history of its origins in postsecondary education, and will then offer an overview of the characteristics common to most contemporary CLAC programs.  The plenary will also provide a summary of the main CLAC models in practice, along with specific examples from institutions across the U.S.
