The Austin Community College District (ACC) will soon begin work on a $770 million general obligation bond approved by District voters in the November 8, 2022 election. The bond funds projects in communities across Central Texas that increase training capacity for high-demand fields such as health care and advanced manufacturing. It also includes new sites in southeast and southwest Travis County.
ACC is the largest trainer of the Central Texas workforce, serving approximately 70,000 students each year. The college has earned regional, state, national, and international recognitions for innovation and academic excellence. Data from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board indicate ACC has the fastest-growing graduation rate among its peer colleges. Nearly 80 percent of students who graduate from ACC continue to live and work in the Austin area. College data show that on average, ACC graduates increase their income by 45 percent within five years of graduation.

The bond package includes projects in each region of the ACC District (north, central, and south).
