students in hvac

The CCAC Student Engagement Fund promotes Special Projects or other approved faculty service activities. These projects can be either campus specific or college wide and should follow the CBA AFT Guidelines on page 35, Article XX A.1.b:

"The College will budget up to $40,000 in each academic year in order to cover costs associated with Special Projects or other approved service activities that are not covered by other budgeted sources, grants or Student Development funds. Budgeted funds will be allocated equitably amongst each campus and the Office of the Provost. An Employee interested in being considered to receive funding for a Special Project or other proposed service activity will submit a CCAC Student Engagement Fund Application to either the Campus President for her/his home campus, for a campus-specific project, or to the Office of the Provost, for a College-wide project, prior to the midterm date of the Fall or Spring Semester preceding the request for funds."

Sample Project

Everyday Chemistry provided students with the opportunity to tour area food or chemical companies with their faculty member. This aided in student understanding of the manufacturing process and the importance of chemistry. A company chemist spoke with the students who then wrote a brief report on their experience and the chemistry involved in one of the company’s consumer products.
