ACES Courses

"ACES has made me realize the possibility and pedagogical benefit of off-campus experiences for students. I realize I can do this without sacrificing the rigorous academic and theoretical elements of my course"

About

ACES courses represent corners of campus that highlights the intent of the AC requirement, while also deepening the meaning of that intent through a combination of multi-disciplinary research and praxis, the development of students and community partners as co-educators, mentoring opportunities, and increased and sustained accessibility of information.

To learn about projects developed with ACES community partners, please visit the ACES Student Community Projects

The ACES Program provides support for faculty to incorporate community-based learning into new or revised AC courses. If you are a faculty member interested in developing or continuing an ACES course, please visit our Grants page.
