Communities of Practice

Communities of Practice are the foundation of LVAIC’s collaboration and innovation across the member campuses. As many as 70 groups of LVAIC faculty and administrators gather formally or informally for professional development, best practice sharing, advancement of initiatives, and development of programs. Through their purpose-driven cooperation, LVAIC Communities of Practice enable educational, operational, and fiscal advantages that are oftentimes exclusive to larger-scaled institutions.
