FY23 Strategic Planning

Austin Community College strives to be among the premier colleges in the nation — a leader in closing equity gaps, increasing student completion rates, and putting students on guided pathways to reach their educational and career goals. The college’s Strategic Plan brings this vision to life.

In fall 2022, ACC launched planning for a new Strategic Plan to drive our institution over the next
five years. The Chancellor, The Chancellor’s Cabinet, and the Board of Trustees share the commitment to develop a strategic plan through meaningful input from all constituencies and members of our internal and external community right from the onset.

What is a Strategic Plan?

The Strategic Plan is a comprehensive plan that sets the agenda for the next five years. Developed in collaboration with our community, the Strategic Plan includes overarching goals that align with ACC’s focus on student success and provides clear targets to measure our ability to serve students and help all areas of the college remain focused on developing strategies to reach common goals and improve student success.
