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.
