“We are the people servicing and supporting, the 70,000 students who attend Wayne County Community College District. With our support, students complete the admissions and registration process. With our support, students utilize our libraries and computer labs. With our support, students secure appropriate and timely supportive services, reasonable accommodations, and navigate through college life complexities,” explained P&AA President, Marcie Noutai.
