Upward Evaluation Procedures

ACC wants all employees to do well in their jobs. One tool we use to set goals and measure performance is the Annual Performance Review. Supervisors are responsible for creating a comfortable work climate.

Professional Development: Questions & Answers

Q: What are the requirements for ADA and SHP?
A: Austin Community College requires its employees to participate in professional development opportunities that will enhance their abilities, provide job-related knowledge, improve their productivity and efficiency, and prepare them for higher-level positions. This commitment to growth is demonstrated by the fact that professional development is incorporated into the Performance Excellence Program (PEP), the performance review system developed and used by ACC for non-faculty positions.



Professional Development is the continuous process of acquiring new knowledge and skills that relate to one’s profession, job responsibilities, or work environment. It plays a key role in maintaining trained, informed, and motivated employees, regardless of job classification.
