#CommunityMatters

On Thursday, January 15, 2015, the African-American Cultural Center (AACC) in collaboration with the African-American Academic Network,(AAAN) hosted #CommunityMatters, the first of an ongoing series of student-centered collaborations between the two units.  This dynamic event was well-attended by students, faculty, and staff of UIC.  Students were engaged in round-table discussions, ice-breakers, storytelling, and asset mapping.  #CommunityMatters provides a forum for student-centered conversations around pressing issues and concerns.

STUDENT ENGAGEMENT EVENT: #CommunityMatters

Please join us for a special King Day celebration as The African American Academic Network (AAAN) and the African American Cultural Center (AACC) invite UIC students, faculty and staff to participate in #CommunityMatters, the first event in an ongoing series of student-centered collaborations between the two units.

The AAAN and AACC collaboration contributes to creating a climate of diversity and equity in which individual students, faculty, and staff feel welcomed in their identifies, valued for their contributions, and feel their identities can be openly expressed wherever they live, work and study.

We look forward to seeing you for an afternoon of conversation, activities, and surprises!  Hope to see you there!
