The committee, which meets twice a year, is responsible for reviewing the list of courses that are taught at community colleges across the state. Every course taught at LCC and other colleges and universities across the state appears in the ACGM.
The committee recommends the addition of any new courses, as well as the removal of courses already in the ACGM. The committee also is responsible for developing and revising course descriptions, student learning outcomes and course parameters.
Arreazola, who has been at LCC for more than 13 years, five of which have been spent as chair of the math department, was nominated for the position by LCC administrators.
He is honored to have been selected for the committee, and he looks forward to seeing his work on the ACGM committee have a positive effect on the LCC community.
“Being an active part of the committee that makes changes and introduces new courses instead of being on the other end, receiving the changes, will definitely be beneficial for the college,” said Arreazola.
“Serving on the advisory committee will give me the opportunity to network and to have LCC as part of the decision-making process rather than just anticipating the changes.
For us to have someone in there will help us prepare for change instead of just reacting. We won’t be sitting back and waiting for directions,” added Arreazola.
In addition to his work with the ACGM committee, Arreazola currently co-chairs LCC’s Curriculum Committee, and serves on the General Education Committee, the Student Success by the Numbers Committee, and the Student Development Team for the Campus Assembly.
He previously served on the THECB’s Uniform Standards Taskforce Committee.
He also is applying for a doctorate in education program at Texas Tech University.
