SACC is a network of people who teach anthropology in community colleges, two-year and four-year colleges, universities and pre-collegiate institutions. A section of the American Anthropological Association (AAA), SACC was founded in 1978 to encourage dialogue and collaboration among teachers of anthropology across sub-disciplines and institutional settings, and to promote excellence in the teaching of anthropology.
