HIGHLIGHTS OF ACC EXPERIENCE

Through these experiences in addition to the globally-oriented coursework, students understand and engage with a wide variety of people and perspectives.
ACC makes the most out of its location in Casablanca by organizing and facilitating internships and other professional experiences throughout students' studies. In this way, students graduate ready for productive and meaningful lives in the world of work.
Students lead ACC and share power equally with faculty and staff. They are directly involved in university governance and make and implement decisions that improve conditions for themselves and the broader community.
As with professional experiences, Casablanca is a city with manifold challenges but also with organizations and individuals working together to address these issues.
