Communications Division:  Mission Statement

The students who enroll at Austin Community College have a variety of reasons for entering our doors: some are lifelong learners, some are seeking new careers, some plan to transfer to a four year school and still others plan to immediately enter the workforce once they complete their Associate Degrees.  No matter what their reasons they all have one thing in common—to enhance the skills which they have already acquired, to learn new skills, and to take advantage of what “higher education” truly means.  The Communications Division of Austin Community College embraces all of these goals, and emphasizes promoting those communication tools that are at the heart of a useful citizen in a progressive/technological society.  We wish our students to be thoughtful and accurate writers, conscientious and careful readers and eloquent, coherent speakers.  We promote, in our Division, those analytical skills that will ensure our students are prepared to become tomorrow’s leaders.
