COD Cares is a campus-wide program for students and staff to participate together in service activities that benefit communities served by College of DuPage.
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.
Stay tuned for the Fall calendar of service activities!
Here is a look at what COD has done for our community so far in 2018:
