The Institute for the Future at Anne Arundel Community College (IF@AACC) promotes future thinking, fosters innovation and engages learners in the art of foresight. Acting as a catalyst for creativity, it develops futures expertise, provides futures tools and creates partnerships. The institute prepares learners to take responsibility for individual and societal futures. It is part of the Sarbanes Center for Public and Community Service.
