The Austin Community College District 2020-25 Academic Master Plan (AMP) will guide ACC’s collective academic vision, administrative supports, and strategic plans for the future. The goal is to produce a concise plan that contains “big ideas” and innovative suggestions on how we may achieve even greater success for our students over the next five years.
