Utah Conservation Corps is an organizational partner with “Aggies Think, Care, Act,” a campus-wide initiative to foster a caring community that embraces civic responsibility, respect for diversity, and human dignity. Aggies Think, Care, Act put out a Call to Action over the weekend stating:
“We condemn the wanton violence consistently perpetrated against Brown and Black people. We empathize with their suffering, accept the call for change, and commit to doing the necessary work it will take. We invite every Aggie to take action and be a part of the solution.”
UCC has established coronavirus protocol in addition to the guidance issued by the CDC and Utah State University. Learn more about the UCC coronavirus protocol. For Utah State University wide coronavirus updates, please visit usu.edu/COVID-19.
