Jerome Townsend ’01 presented a talk on fundraising for the voluntary sector during the “Making Democracy Work” conference in Budapest, Hungary, Feb. 19. Townsend graduated from Rutgers-Camden with a degree in public policy and administration after graduating from ACCC. He visited Budapest last spring as part of a Rutgers-Camden international studies course on the role of nonprofit organizations.

We heard from ACCC graduate Steve Dunn who is assistant professor of medicine at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. He is working in a basic science laboratory investigating diabetic complications of kidney disease. “I was the second SGA president at ACC in 1967-68,” he writes. I began my ACC experience in the old ACHS building at night and moved to the current site. There was a lot of mud back then. ACCC has made great strides since my days in professors Messick and Hurff’s classes. ACC was a great worthwhile experience.”
