New MPA cohort participates in service learning

First-year MPA students wrapped up socialization week with Saturday morning service learning projects across the community. Students served at three different Habitat for Humanity sites, the Salvation Army, and J.J. Harris Elementary School through the organization Keep ACC Beautiful. Student concluded their service with a discussion on what they learned at their locations as well as how they can relate their classwork to the work that is currently being done in the community. These projects also kicked off each student’s goal to volunteer 100 hours of their time while in the MPA program. Seven hours down, only 93 left!
