Austin Community College District’s (ACC) Regional Advisory Committees (RACs) presented annual reports to the ACC Board of Trustees during the November 16 work session.
The three 11-member committees, which formed in 2018, represent ACC’s north, central, and south regions and help strengthen the link between ACC and the community.
The RACs held nine meetings throughout the year to identify and discuss strengths and areas for improvement in their respective regions. The conversations helped identify facilities, workforce and industry, and program needs based on community feedback.
Below are recommendations from each RAC presentation. These recommendations will help the college and the Board of Trustees in planning future funding strategies.
North Advisory Committee | Cypress Creek, Northridge, Round Rock, and San Gabriel campuses
Central Advisory Committee | Eastview, Elgin, Highland, and Rio Grande campuses
South Advisory Committee | Hays, Riverside, and South Austin campuses, Southeast Travis County land, and the Pinnacle site
The RACs will continue to provide input into the college’s planning processes and will focus on making more specific recommendations as a part of their 2021 work. For more information, visit austincc.edu/rac.
