Where will Austin Community College be in 2030? ACC will be among the premier colleges in the nation — a leader in closing equity gaps, increasing student completion rates, and putting students on guided pathways to reach their educational and career goals. The college’s Strategic Plan is our guide to achieve this vision.
What is the Strategic Plan? Developed in collaboration with our community, ACC’s Strategic Plan ensures all areas of the college remain focused on developing strategies to reach common goals and improve student success. When our students succeed, lives improve, the workforce is stronger, and our community thrives.
