Greetings Friends!

If you live, work or play in Anne Arundel County, you likely have interacted with an Anne Arundel Community College graduate. Perhaps the phlebotomist who took your blood was a graduate of our 16-week program. Maybe the electrician who wired a new switch in the office apprenticed in one of our many skilled trade certificate programs. Someone in your family, maybe even you, attended our college and successfully transferred and graduated from the four-year college of their choice.

As president of AACC and one of its biggest cheerleaders, I could go on and on about every program, but I will simply say, AACC graduates are everywhere. People in our communities are looking at their lives and choosing their own adventures to follow, and we are here to help.

We help make this happen in a few different ways.

Next time you visit our campus, take a moment to visit our two newest buildings. The Clauson Center for Innovation and Skilled Trades was the first AACC building constructed entirely with philanthropic dollars from the community. It houses our electrical, HVAC, plumbing and sprinkler fitting apprenticeship programs, along with welding, forklift operations, framing and finish carpentry, and general contracting programs, tailored expressly to regional demand.

AACC’s other new structure, our state-of-the-art Health and Life Sciences Building, acknowledges the growing medical needs in our area. This helps us respond to those needs with new space that allows our nursing program, along with other critical-care programs, to double in size.

In addition to opening these wonderful facilities, AACC continues to receive honors at the local, regional and national levels. In 2021 we were named the No. 1 community college in the nation. This is in addition to other state or national rankings that include computer information systems, information technology, culinary, nursing, LPN and more.

By expanding our workforce development programs, we support the needs of our employers and our local economy while helping people choose their own path to start and maintain successful careers. Our accolades, our students, our graduates and their work in our community and beyond all speak for themselves.

If you want to join, we have a place, a course and a program that’s right for you. We look forward to seeing you soon!
