Transforming Students and Communities
As a student, these courses provide you the opportunity to make a difference in our communities and to improve the quality of life for the people in the organizations with which you will be working. Enrolling in ACE designated courses helps you to embody the mission of the university by taking courses that also serve the community. ACE courses allow you to earn community service hours in your academic course.
“Since working with Habitat for Humanity I better understand how collective behavior works. The readings have been helpful but working with Habitat has shown me that when people in the community join together with a positive purpose, it can be a social movement that attracts people from all walks of life.”
--J.M., SHSU student in SOCI 3392 ACE
