Research

ACC is thriving with applied research projects in many different areas, most notably in the fields of agriculture, environment and technology.

Applied research activities contribute to better programs, better student experiences and better outcomes for businesses and organizations in our region.

The term 'applied research' refers to activities aimed at discovering, interpreting, applying, and disseminating new knowledge in response to problems relevant to the college and the businesses, organizations, and individuals of its community.
