Carleton’s Advisory Council on College and Community Relations

Established in 2007, the Advisory Council on College and Community Relations promotes open interactions between the College and the greater Northfield community. The faculty and staff who serve on the Council assist the Office of College Communications in providing the campus and the community with important and timely information about shared interests, as well as listen actively to neighborhood concerns and ideas. The ACCCR maintains an ongoing dialog with the Northfield East Side Neighborhood Association and the two groups meet regularly during the year—at least once a term.

If you have a comment or question about Carleton's role in the community, we invite you to contact a member of our Advisory Council, or use the feedback form below. We will respond to you as quickly as possible.
