Riverhawk Recovery Plan
The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff is our first priority. It’s also our mission to provide quality
education to our community. Our Riverhawk Recovery teams continue to work behind the scenes to develop
guidelines and procedures that will allow us to fulfill our mission in the safest way possible.

While many of AACC’s classes remain online for winter and spring, a growing number of credit and noncredit courses
will be scheduled in the hybrid format, which blends online and in-person learning. Certain noncredit trainings are
being held on-site.

If you plan to come to campus for training, keep up with the on-site requirements and learn more about how we are
keeping you safe by reviewing our Riverhawk Recovery plan and reopening procedures at aacc.edu/recovery.

How can we help?
We understand you have a lot of questions about the future. At Anne Arundel Community College, your plans are
important and don’t have to be on hold. We encourage you to consider AACC as part of your educational and career
goals. Whether you need career training to prepare you for a new or better job, or are interested in planting a fall and
winter vegetable garden, we’re here for you.
