Men of Color Program at ACC

Mission: The Men of Color (MOC) program is designed to provide institutional support and encourage success for men of color by providing a network of resources that focuses on recruitment, retention, and graduation at Austin Community College (ACC).

The MOC program will provide consistent individualized academic support to increase student success for all participants. Often students who are not engaged or encouraged to achieve high academic success early in their college career will be at a greater disadvantage to meet their educational goals. Additional support will be provided from a network of Faculty and Staff from the institution, which will positively impact the learning experience of our students.
