Austin Community College’s Board of Trustees recently approved a strategic plan that sets forth a comprehensive and ambitious set of performance targets to guide college operations through 2021.
At their November 21 work session board members praised the plan, which reinforces the college’s mission and is driven by a push for more individuals to obtain postsecondary education and the need to improve completion rates of ACC students.
The plan outlines three overarching goals that align with the college’s transition to guided pathways and focus on student success. Each goal includes detailed objectives, tasks, metrics, and specific targeted outcomes.

The three goals and a few of the targets for each are:
Goal 1: Improved access and enrollment
Goal 2: Increased persistence and engagement
Goal 3: Increased completion and transition to employment/transfer
Dr. Charles Cook, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs, said the strategic plan is intended to be a “living document” that will be revisited each year to ensure the college is achieving the intended improvements. The college will report its progress on performance measures annually.
