The League for Innovation in the Community College (League) is an international nonprofit organization with a mission to cultivate innovation in the community college environment. Founded in 1968 by B. Lamar Johnson and a dozen U.S. community and technical college presidents, the League has proudly served community college institutions for almost five decades.
The League for Innovation in the Community College Board of Directors is pleased to welcome Austin Community College District to its membership. This U.S.-based institution will be represented on the Board by President and CEO Richard Rhodes.
“Austin Community College District is addressing some of higher education’s most important challenges from a data-informed perspective, with student success as its focus, and in a way that distinguishes itself as one of the most innovative community colleges in the country,” said Board Chair Dr. Anne Kress. “Whether partnering with K-12 to address college readiness or redesigning developmental education to improve student success rates, ACC and President Richard Rhodes are changing the higher education narrative in Texas and across the country. It’s a pleasure to welcome them to the League’s Board of Directors.”
