Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve.

Academic Civic Engagement through Service
The ACES Program involves active participants in the local community, selflessly giving of our time and talents. We are not just volunteers, but students with a unique opportunity to challenge ourselves outside the realm of academia. Connections are made (through reflection logs, journals, class presentations, meeting with instructors and meetings with other students) between classroom work and work in service. We also take an active role in teaching others—in our classes, in our friendships and in our communities.
We are dedicated to helping you get the most out of your education. Our program emphasizes learning through life experience, providing you with the opportunity to test the skills you are learning outside the classroom setting. At the same time you will be providing an invaluable service to your community.
