The commission focuses on and discusses issues facing small and rural colleges. Their work will be used to inform the larger AACC and lawmakers about the needs of colleges like SCC, and ensure their needs are included in their larger advocacy efforts.

Enamait has been involved with AACC for five years and said he is proud to be able to continue providing the organization with input while gleaning best practices for SCC.

“I am humbled and honored to have been appointed to AACC’s Commission on Small and Rural Colleges,” he said. “As a representative of SCC, I will work diligently to share SCC’s best practices while absorbing new ideas that may ultimately benefit future SCC students.”

Enamait was appointed to the role on July 1, and will serve in his role through June 30, 2024.
