Washtenaw Community College is one of four colleges in the state of Michigan to receive Tree Campus USA certification from the Arbor Day Foundation and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
The national program honors colleges and universities for effective campus forest management and for engaging staff and students in conservation goals.
Washtenaw Community College achieved the title by meeting Tree Campus USA's five standards, which include maintaining a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance and student service-learning project.

Ann Arbor, Mich., March 28, 2017 – The Washtenaw Community College Board of Trustees approved a one-percent tuition increase for on-campus in-district students at the March board meeting today. Tuition rate increases also were approved for all distance learning, out-district, out-state and international students. Fees were unaffected.
"Washtenaw Community College remains incredibly affordable and offers extremely competitive rates for both on-campus and online students," said WCC Dr. President Rose B. Bellanca. "For example, WCC has the third lowest in-district tuition rate per credit hour out of 28 comparable community colleges, and WCC's in-district tuition rate is more than 11% less than the average tuition rate of those colleges."
The tuition rate increase for on-campus in-district students is less than the rate of inflation, which was 2.7% for the 12 months ending February 2017.
The new tuition rates go into effect for Fall 2017 semester. Full Story »
