American Association of Community Colleges continues to pursue a mutually beneficial partnership with the Peace Corps



American Association of Community Colleges continues to pursue a mutually beneficial partnership with the Peace Corps

AACC continues to pursue a mutually beneficial partnership with the Peace Corps, following our September meeting with the organizationís director, Gaddi Vasquez (who happens to be a community college graduate). President Bush has set a goal to double the number of participants in the Peace Corps, and Vasquez is interested in establishing a relationship with community colleges. Peace Corps officials will be working with AACC to better acquaint Peace Corps staff about the assets of community college graduates and their potential as members of the Corps. Revitalization of the Corps may be slowed by the Administrationís preoccupation with Homeland Security and other budget priorities.
