What is MnACC?
MnACC, the Minnesota Association of Counselors of Color, is an organization of college professionals. We came together in the 1990s to address the needs of students, faculty, and staff of color in Minnesota institutions of higher learning. Our main focus is improving access to college and success rates in college of students of color in Minnesota.
What does MnACC do for the community?
MnACC sponsors two weeks of college fairs each year, and gives out a number of scholarships to college-bound students of color. Our college fairs are held directly in Twin Cities metro area high schools, the exact places that often need our help the most. In the fairs, MnACC's unique collaborative (not competitive) approach means that we try to direct students to the college or university that best fits him/her.
Every spring, MnACC gives out a number of scholarships to students of color who are enrolling in MnACC-member institutions. This includes 2-year, 4-year, public and private schools, and students from all over the state.
