COD Cares

COD Cares is a campus-wide program for students and staff to participate together in service activities that benefit local College of DuPage communities.

Why does COD Care?

Residents of District 502 graciously support College of DuPage. They believe in our mission to be a center for excellence in teaching, learning, and cultural experiences. This show of faith and giving to College of DuPage is a good reminder that, beyond our normal duties, it is valuable to find new and different ways to give back.
