Coronavirus (COVID-19)

ACM is monitoring the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as it relates to planned programs and is continually checking for guidance from public health authorities including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the City of Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), and the World Health Organization (WHO). As changes are made to future ACM programs, meetings, events, or services as a result of COVID-19, we are communicating those directly to the participants and updating our website accordingly. Updated March 19, 2020. 

How to Get Involved

Through the ACM, faculty, staff, and students at member colleges participate in collaborative programs and activities focused on academic excellence and professional development.

Initiatives include:

  • Professional Development

    Faculty and staff can access opportunities for collaboration and development in the areas of teaching, research, and service

  • Off-Campus Study

    Students and faculty can immerse themselves at distinctive cultural, nonprofit, and research institutions.

  • Grant-Funded Programs

    ACM's portfolio of programs supports projects, events, and development activities for faculty, staff, and students.

  • Advanced Study

    We offer students from diverse backgrounds opportunities for mentoring, career development, and experiential research in the humanities, humanistic social sciences, or arts

  • Faculty & Staff Project Outcomes

    Resources created by ACM-funded faculty and staff projects, including curricular materials, assessment tools, and best practices

  • Athletic Competition & Writing Contest

    Annual competitions bring together student athletes from across the consortium; since 1973, we've honored one story each year as our Nick Adams Short Story Contest winner
