AACC Campus that Cares Week Volunteer Activities

The AACC Center for Learning through Service created the AACC Campus that Cares Week to encourage faculty, staff and students to become civically engaged, to work side by side while getting to know one another better, and to make a difference in our community.

AACC Campus that Cares events will be held during National Volunteer Week April 11 to April 16, 2016.
