Department Meeting Dates for 2015-2016

Department meeting dates and locations are now available on our Google claendar, and on the meetings webpage. Our first meeting will be on September 4th at the Highland campus in room 2405.

The departmental meetings are open to all who wish to attend. College policy requires attendance by full-time faculty, but adjunct faculty are quite welcome and are crucial to the functioning of the department and establishing departmental policies.


Summer Semester To-Do List

  • Please send Lala a copy of your first day handouts via campus mail to the RVS campus. Do not email them.
  • Make sure your syllabi and office hours are posted online through Lighthouse. This is a state requirement. The link to to lighthouse is http://www5.austincc.edu/lighthouse/
  • If you have any changes for the directory or are a new instructor, please fill out the ACC Web Directory Change Form.
  • If you are not teaching this semester or you are not teaching a certain course, please return the textbook to Lala.
